Mon, Nov 2nd 2020 09:25 am

Entrepreneurs John Pirrone and Scott DeMott, owners of Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market, has opened a new brick-and-mortar location 6610 Shawnee Road, North Tonawanda. A grand opening weekend is set for 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 14-15.

Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market have converted a mid-1800s barn into a 3,700-square-foot shopping experience for all to enjoy. The owners have added numerous enhancements to give it a farmhouse charm, including second-floor retail space as well as re-exposing the barn’s hayloft.

A press release said, “Pirrone and DeMott’s business, Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market, is a rather unique model bringing together over 50 local artisans from WNY to showcase and sell their goods. Most items in the market are made by local artisans.”

Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market will be open year-round, seven days a week, with evening hours.

The press release continued, “As Buffalonians, we are all committed to shopping local and this is a perfect way to support local artisans throughout the Western New York area.

“DeMott, co-owner, comments that ‘The opening of Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market provides a solution for those artisans that had been greatly affected by the challenges of the pandemic, leaving artisans with very few options.’

“If you are one to repurpose furniture, Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market was awarded the national line of Fusion Mineral Paint, a special paint for the ‘Do-it-Selfer,’ which has so many more benefits than traditional furniture paints on the market. Each employee of the artisan market had to take a certification class in the selling of Fusion Mineral Paint. You can now find Fusion Mineral Paint at our artisan market location.”

Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market offers online shopping, curbside pick-up and home delivery by a Rustic Buffalo courier service (non-contact delivery).

Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market has plans to evolve its business model in 2021 to other areas of Western New York for all to enjoy. It has hired a full-time events coordinator, which will allow the space to be used for various events, such as wine tasting by various Niagara Wine Trail wineries, a holiday shopping soiree, rustic and vintage artisan DIY Classes, summertime food truck nights, and live music nights from the Rustic Buffalo outside deck.
