There can be a lot of hobbies, I wouldn't have put games shops (table gaming, adventures, Cosplay, ...) in hobby, but in toys. I agree for subtags. Cosplay could be a sub category of costumes. I would have thought of hobby stores selling stuff for creative work, like scissors, glue, paper and cardboard, wooden pieces, paint, plastics etc.
I see that rc vehicle models could be seen as a kind of hobby shop too, but they could also be a kind of toy shop or a category of its own (with still space for more detailed subtags, eg trains, aircraft, watercraft, machinery, landbased. Scales (can make sense for trains with fix scale classes)), I'd rather prefer not to use a very broad reading of "hobby" as this would reduce the information significantly requiring to look at subtags for most real applications. Maybe we can live without it completely, using unambiguous synonyms for the different meanings.
