From past memories... to future traditions...


Celebrating family, Building Traditions… all in one place… Niagara Hobby & Craft Mart in the Town of Cheektowaga, New York, focuses on products that you and your family can grow with… not grow out of.  With its roots from 1945 in Binghamton, New York, the store has products that children can enjoy alone, parents can enjoy with their children, and grandparents can enjoy with their grandchildren.

We don’t mark-up (or create) our retail prices and then offer a discount; which is what some retailers do to their customers.  We discount every day… and always have!

A multi-level interactive N-Scale, HO-Scale, O-Scale, and G-Scale train layout with a closed circuit camera and color monitors featuring a LIVE video feed from the railroad tracks in the rear of our building and train-themed programs.

Families enjoy our 200ft six-lane Carrera Analog six-lane 1/32nd scale slot car track!  30ft Carrera Digital 132 slot car track!  32ft aluminum Pinewood Derby Test Track!  “Thomas & Friends” (Wooden, Take-n-Play, Trackmaster), Tegu and Kapla play tables.

Throughout the year, tour our rare, fully-restored, 1949 red caboose in our parking lot.  Visitors from throughout the world have climbed into cupola, opened the window, and waved as a member of their family takes a memorable photograph!  Children love to push the button that flashes the lights and rings the bell on our railroad signal.

We do not markup our shipping charges and we don’t believe in handling charges!
