Owners Jim & Kathy Holperin are Eagle River natives, and both their families have run businesses on Wall St….the Holperin family since the 1920s and the Bauer family since the 1950s.
Kathy opened Grandma’s Toy Box, a specialty toy store, in 2008 and its continued growth prompted the couple to open a second store, Eagle Craft & Hobby in 2014.
Grandma’s Toy Box is located downtown in the old Gaffney/Stallman/Hyslop furniture store right across from Vilas Cinema. Eagle Craft & Hobby is located next door to Grandma’s in the historic Eagle Theater building.
Son Chris Holperin manages the remote control department in Eagle Craft & Hobby which also houses “Bauer’s Rock Shop” so the family tradition of Eagle River retail lives on.
We enjoy being part of Eagle River’s commercial district and hope you’re able to stop by one or both of our two great stores when you’re downtown!
