21st Annual Buffalo Women’s Gifts

The holidays are heating up, with local artisan gift buying opportunities around each and every corner. The other night I was meeting up with some friends at Founding Fathers, when I struck up a conversation with the bartender. She was wearing a super cool shirt, and my wife and I both commented on how much we liked it. She told us that she purchased it at the Women’s Gift show that takes place at Asbury Hall at Babeville each year. She mentioned that the event is one of her favorite shopping events, and that she always finds great items.

What makes this particular market so different is that all of the artisan vendors are women, hence “Buffalo Women’s Gifts”. This is the 21st year that this holiday production is set to get underway. Not only are the gifts super unique – everything is handcrafted. Plus, Babeville is a wonderful setting for the affair.

2017 marks a special year for Buffalo Women’s Gifts. Ownership of the event has shifted from the event’s founders to West Side Stitchery. While the ownership has changed, the premise of the market remains the same – to empower women to sell, create and manifest their own destinies. 

“Buffalo Women’s Gifts not only provides an eclectic and exciting experience for shoppers seeking to support local artisans, but also celebrates a sentiment that we at Buffalo Women’s Gifts hold deeply—that the future is female!” – Buffalo Women’s Gifts
