What’s better than shopping? Shopping with booze.

This is *THE* shopping event you need to be at. And it’s here guys and gals.

Trust us, you’re def going to want to be there.

Expect a lot more than just your typical vendor fair. We’ve got over 75 local businesses, artisans, booze-makers and vendors coming your way. And of course, we’ve got only the best of the best in Buffalo. Plus- FREE booze samples (from Black Button Distilling, Ten Thousand Vines,  Buffalo Distilling Co.
