The Saturday Night Live crew frequesnts Jan’s for props. The store is stuffed with model airplanes, boats, cars, trains and military tanks, as well as architecture modeling tools and race-car sets. It’s one of a handful of classic hobby stores still around (and it’s been at the same location for nearly 40 years). Specializing in radio-controlled boats, Jan’s is also a prime spot for architects to purchase sheet plastic, metal tubing, woodland scenic foliage and even miniature people (available in all different scales).
