Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market’s “Holiday Sip & Shop” take place at the Historic Palace Theatre, 2 East Ave, Lockport, this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. More than 125 local artisans will participate.
Having recently undergone a multimillion-dollar renovation, the theater can comfortably accommodate several thousands of guests as they browse Rustic Buffalo’s local artisans. Live Christmas music will add to the festive atmosphere. Children and families are welcome.
Proceeds from the 50/50 raffle and silent basket auction will support this venue. There are over $10,000 in silent auction items for the winner. A $5 admission fee will be taken, and these proceeds will also be given directly to the Palace Theatre. In turn, guests will receive a $5 spending chip good for purchases with any of the artisans.
Rustic Buffalo owner John Pirrone said, “Giving back is a huge part of our mission, whether by hosting vaccination clinics, pet adoptions, blood drives, or by giving back to local gems like the Palace.
“Our ‘Holiday Sip & Shop’ is a great opportunity to complete your holiday shopping with unique and beautiful finds while supporting local artisans in the spirit of the season without the worry and challenges of supply and demand issues, because everything is local.”
