CRITICS, UPSTATE | Doug’s Trains, Toys & Hobbies
2907 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 478-7733
Packed wall to wall, Doug’s Trains, Toys & Hobbies thrives even in this techno era. Young and old still love handmade model trains, plastic models, Pinewood Derby kits, die-cast cars, model rockets and kites. Owner Doug Arnold, former manager of the model railroading department at Mitchell’s Department Store, is stocking new materials for making and detailing doll houses.

123 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-4434
Now in a new, larger space, Gidget’s Gadgets offers an “over-20 line” for adults in need of racy key chains, mugs and ice cube trays. Owner Steve Fallon accommodates “that slightly twisted adult lifestyle” by selling off-color greeting cards that are so funny, people have been known to buy 20 at a time. Fallon is also on top of the bacon craze, stocking bacon belts, watches and other pork-inspired products. The Lego area is bigger, but Fallon’s vintage toys remain the bread and butter.
