Buffalo’s first circular lifestyle shop just opened nestled within the Elmwood Village, and it has the most unique, adorable name – Little Salmon!

This new business wants to create a positive impact on the environment by using renewable and ethical resources while crafting their products. Standing up as an advocate for the well being of our environment while serving the community fine products is what distinguishes Little Salmon from the rest.

“Little Salmon is a mindset, a way of life that consciously reduces the negative impact that our human behaviors inevitably put in our world. We help our customers live this principle by offering products that are made from ethical and renewable sources, designed within the circular model, and ultimately give back to the community.” Little Salmon Co.

Amidst the pandemic, (Owner) Tracey pondered how she could make a change as a small business owner in a big world full of consumption. While looking adversity in the eyes, she had an epiphany as she blurted out: “I feel like a salmon swimming against the current.” Suddenly this immense frustration was turned into motivation, and inspiration to succeed. Tracey says: “We will stay resilient, committed, and persistent, just like the salmon!”


You can expect a variety of products available ranging from skin care products and accessories, to artifacts that will perfect your kitchen and/or bathroom. All of these products are renewable, which means that you will be beautifying your home and improving our world simultaneously!
