Dan's Crafts & Things is celebrating a milestone anniversary: 45 years of fun, hobbies and crafts!

The 12,000 square-foot hobby store has thousands of items for sale. There's model trains, craft supplies, radio-controlled vehicles, construction kits, puzzles, model kits, games and toys.


This weekend, you can help the family-owned business celebrate with the community. 

“It is great just being involved and doing things with the family and going out in the community like this event and being a part of something," Dan Coons said. 

Saturday's event will also feature a raffle that supports Golisano Children’s Hospital. It's in honor of Coons' daughter Brinley who was born prematurely and spent time in the NICU. 

The celebration takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Dan’s Crafts & Things is located at 352 Empire Blvd. in Irondequoit.
