Moda Vintage and Cone Five Pottery move towards “bigger and better”

Two incredibly unique Hertel Avenue businesses are going to be doubling in size. For years, Moda Vintage and Cone Five Pottery shared a building on the street, but when a nearby storefront came up for grabs, Lucy Perrone-Mancuso, owner of Moda, decided that it was time to expand her operation (into the defunct The Artery location).

That left Greg Link, owner of Cone Five Pottery with a big opportunity to expand into the freed up Moda space. Now Greg will have a dedicated gallery and gift shop for his pottery work and other fine crafts that he sells, along with a new space that will be used as a pottery studio dedicated to classes for students. Greg has been leading the way in the world of craft sales in Buffalo, and ventured out early on to open a storefront where he could sell his utilitarian pottery. Likewise, Lucy has made a name for herself in Buffalo when it comes to carrying coveted period vintage accessories such as jewelry, handbags, sunglasses, umbrellas, clocks, watches, belts and some clothing. Now she will have some extra room to display much of her merchandise that tended to get cluttered due to lack of room.

Both Cone Five and Moda are tried and true businesses that at one time were located on Elmwood Avenue. Today they are once again in a similar trajectory, as both look forward to creating new business opportunities by significantly enhancing the size of their operations.
