Pat Catan, an entrepreneur in the craft industry, started his first Cleveland art supply store in 1954. The modest 600-square-foot location was on East 131 Street and Miles Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. Before that, Pat had mainly been an Ohio floral supplies distributor, but he had more creative ideas than simply plastic flower arrangements. Today, there are 20 Pat Catan's stores located throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania. Each store is packed full of crafts supplies, including floral decorations and wood turnings, along with art and jewelry making supplies.
