Now adays you hear and read more about hobby shops closing than opening but for collectors in the Noblesville area its just the opposite. Welcome to the downtown square, Bruno’s Shoebox located inside Moonshot Games at 50 N. 9th street in Noblesville. The shoebox mostly deals in vintage sports cards and memorabilia and if you think you may recognize the owner behind the counter, you probably do. Owner, Conrad Brunner has been a sports journalist for 40 years, covering the Pacers and Colts for the IndyStar and 1070 the Fan.

The store is open Tuesday – Saturday 10 to 6.
