Unnecessary Extras Dine & Craft Date Night this Saturday

Unnecessary Extras is into its second week of being officially open.

Unnecessary Extras, 723 Main St in Rochester, has been blossoming with business, providing a little something for everyone by combining antiques, golf, and arts and crafts into one place. 

Owner Lisa Fellers was raised in Indianapolis, but had always wanted to raise her own family in a small town, says the success of the business so far feels like a dream come true. 


Wanting to have hands-on activities in her shop, this Saturday Unnecessary Extras has teamed up with Nubiano's Pizza to bring food, drink and creativity to the shop from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with a Dine and Craft Date Night event. 

Registration for their event and other events to come in the future, can be found on their website at https://www.unnecessaryextras.com/book-online. Saturday's Dine and Craft is includes a meal from three choices, and working together as a group to learn new techniques and art by refurbishing furniture and household items. 

Meal options are spaghetti, bread stick and a side salad; a sandwich, side salad and two cheesecake squares; or a large salad with two cheesecake squares. 

Although the event is called 'date night', Fellers says the occasion doesn't need to be a romantic one. Fellers encouraged anyone wanting to get out with family members or friends to also join. Single participants are also welcome. 

Fellers said the Dine and Craft date night is the first of many planned for Unnecessary Extras future. Wanting to bring more gatherings and activities to downtown Rochester, Fellers hopes to provide at least one craft event each month in 2024.
