Market Arcade welcomes Buffalo Adore shop

          Buffalo Adore, a shop that specializes in handmade gifts by local artists, opened the doors to its second location at 617 Main St. inside the Market Arcade Building on Sept. 1.
          The idea of opening this second location came after it participated in the Queen City Pop Up, a program that was set up by the owners of the building to attract more businesses to Main Street. 
          Owned by Andrea and Eric Dacey, the shop sells things like jewelry, art, apparel, home décor and beauty products that have a specific Buffalo theme.
          Their main shop, located on Abbott Road in South Buffalo, has been open for about three years.
           “My sister, Andrea, who founded the store, has always been a pro-Buffalo person,” Kristen Arends said. “Before even the boom of people wanting to be downtown and shopping local, she’s just always been a big proponent of supporting small businesses, shopping local, that’s how you really make change in your community. So she thought that doing a store would be a great way to be a part of that."
