Steven Elliott

Owner

I’m the crazy nut who started all of this.

I started out my career as an architect and I believe I chose that path because I liked making models of the building designs. I then went on to start a computer-aided-design and animation consulting comapny, wrote technical documentation and then training material for Autodesk, and then developed customer training for Calix.

The problem was after about 3 years I would get bored and try a different career. When I approached Jean about opening a hobby store, one of her first comments was, “You’re going to stick with this and not want to do something else in three years, Right?”

Well, we opened our doors in 2004 so I guess I stuck with it. Now when I get bored I remodel the store or come up with another activity to sponsor.

Specialties:

  • Models
  • Slot Cars
  • Radio Control and
  • enough to be dangerous in most other departments

Jean is the keel and rudder that keeps Fundemonium upright and on course.

Jean has a degree in business computing and developed database software for managing community centers. She is also an avid tennis player and has coached Casa Grande girls tennis and captained competetive teams. When Steve had his idea for a hobby store, Jean suspended her work as a contract programmer to help launch the store and she ended up staying full-time.

Jean makes sure the orders are processed and the bills get paid.

Specialties:

  • Children’s Toys
  • Crafts
  • Education
  • Games
  • and yes guys, she can find parts for RC and trains as well as any other person in the store.
