Niagara Hobby & Craft Mart

Celebrating Families, Building Traditions.... All In One Place. Focusing on products that you and your family will grow with... not grow out of. Products that children can enjoy alone, parents can enjoy with their children, and grandparents can enjoy with their grandchildren.

The founder of Niagara Hobby & Craft Mart, John Kavulich Sr., felt that companies should always return to the community some of what the community provided to the company. We receive many requests and attempt to provide support to as many as our resources permit. If you do not receive a response from us in ten days, that generally means we are unable to share support for the effort at this time; but please send along the request again the following year for consideration.

Those entities and individuals seeking support (gift certificate, product, cash) from Niagara Hobby & Craft Mart should send a written request by mail, e-mail, or delivery to our location.
The request must include a description of the event or publication, what type of support is being sought, relevent date(s), contact telephone number(s), and mailing address (very important if we wish to send a gift certificate).

If you do not receive a reply from us within fourteen (14) days, this means that we were unable to support your event this year, but please send along a solicitation next year.  We have received up to ten requests in a single day; we do the best that we can with the limited resources we have to offer each year.
