  • Oregon State Penitentiary Hobby Shop Open to Public
    hobbyshoplogo.JPGIn May 2014, the Department of Corrections (DOC) launched an online hobby shop for the public to purchase a variety of inmate crafts, including leather works, paintings, and metal jewelry.
     
    The 57 inmates assigned to the Oregon State Penitentiary (OSP) hobby shop are responsible for purchasing their own supplies, tools, and equipment, which in turn teaches them money management skills and financial accountably (inmates have to pay taxes on all items sold). These inmates are not paid to work in the shop; rather the online hobby shop provides a forum to sell their work. This allows them to earn money to purchase more supplies, save money for their release, pay child support, pay restitution, assist their families, pay for school, or even to give to charities.
     
    The hobby shop supervisor, a DOC employee, oversees the online store and manages the PayPal accounts. The website comes at no cost to the department.
