Support local. Buy local is something we all try and do. And why not? Any person or business that is homegrown should be supported by its community. This area has so many great artisans that cover everything from art and jewelry to food products and beverages.

Mark your calendar now because Black Friday and Small business Saturday is happening on November 26 and November 27. And there is really no better gift to give than something that is originally inspired by people that live here.

STEP OUT BUFFALO also sees the value in supporting locals that is why they are putting on The Fall Makers + Shakers: Boozy Artisan Market 2021 on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday from 11 am- 5 pm at the newly renovated historical building that is Buffalo Powerhouse located at 140 Lee Street in Buffalo.

According to STEP OUT BUFFALO

The event will have awesome artisans, all curated for your shopping pleasure, a build-your-own-Bloody Mary bar, cash bar, food, DJ, free booze samples, and more fun surprises. Plus, each vendor will have a giveaway exclusively for attendees of Makers + Shakers to win free stuff as you shop.

My father is retired but he has always been creating art as far as I can remember. He has been in the Allentown Art Festival where he won first place for 'Mixed Media', Robby Takac's Music is Art events, and even had his work displayed at the Rust Belt Bookstore.

There was no better feeling for him than when someone showed an interest in art, or better yet actually purchased a piece. You can help give that feeling to another artist or craft person. Plus, they will have a bar so it's a win-win. Support local. Shop local.
