The dedicated framers at Ferrante Picture Framing draw on more than 40 years of experience as they outfit works by Ontario artists James Lumbers, Trisha Romance, and George Upper as well as personal photographs and mementos with frames of all shapes and styles. Wood, metal, and matting accent the edges of posters and paintings in picture sandwiches protected by glass; display cases can commemorate a retired licence plate or a toddler's dinner plate scraped clean of its vegetables. Staffers can also create pop art pieces that transform ordinary photos into masterpieces more Warholian than Marilyn Monroe in a tub of Campbell’s tomato soup.

Jenny’s Clayhouse, one of Buffalo’s first and only paint-your-own-pottery studios, calls out to artists and craftists looking to cast off faded paint-by-number books to animate stylish ceramics while sipping on home-brought spirits. Sloping picture windows span from floor to ceiling in the airy space, splashing sunlight across the studio’s selection of domestic staples—including mugs, plates, and piggy banks. After guests gleam the once-white objets d'art, Jenny’s staff will summon flames to bake and glaze the handheld masterpieces to protect them from wear and raw-food dieters. Pintsize painters can polish their brushstrokes at Jenny’s summer-camp sessions, or gather friends, teachers, and New York Times art critics for a pottery-painting birthday party or after-school outing.
At 8 in the morning, early crowds arrive at Lancaster Market to browse the tables of more than 40 vendors selling locally grown produce, handmade gourmet foods, and organic meats. Some stop at Kornerstone Coffee for a steamy cup before they leisurely browse bundles of flowers, flats of vegetables, and trays of seasonal fruits. Others head directly to their favorite stands: Hens Honey Bee Farm, Chateau Buffalo winery, Hanzlian's Sausage. The smell of kettle corn and pancakes scents the air, tempting these die-hard shoppers to linger in the open-air market. Since the farmers' market is open most weekends in the summer and early fall, it serves as both a dependable drop-in shopping center and a town mingling place. Demonstrations, such as how to can strawberry-pineapple marmalade and how to butcher a raspberry, educate anyone who sticks around.
Inside Gleam & Glimmer Stained Glass Studio, every surface sparkles with the colorful creations of its owners, from mirrors and lampshades to jewelry and candleholders. The staffers hoard neither their skills nor the stock, sharing both in instructional classes that teach students to work with glass. Their charges study creating stained-glass patterns, fusing dichroic glass, and creating three-dimensional objects such as jewelry boxes.
For years, Rebecca Ruger collected the smooth pieces of glass that washed up on Lake Erie’s beaches. It started out as a pastime, but one day, she had a creative impulse and used some of the pieces to make a piece of artwork as a gift for her boyfriend. After that, she continued to create glass-based artwork, selling the pieces at craft shows alongside her jewelry-maker daughter. The work began to grow in popularity, and today, Ruger owns her own art boutique—Beach Bum Glass Cottage.
According to metroWNY, Ruger and her boyfriend now spend more than 20 hours each week scouring the Hamburg beaches for the glass, driftwood, and fossils that she uses to make the artwork and jewelry in her shop. Ruger also supports other local artisans by stocking handmade products that range from dog treats to soy candles.
Century-old trees line the quarter-mile driveway to Focus On You Photography's log-cabin studio, greeting visitors with the same timelessness owner Kim Cartmell and her team create in their photographs. Kim has travelled around the Niagara region snapping wedding shots since 1993, and now she and the team welcome subjects to their own idyllic photogenic turf. Outside, an antique buggy and wrought-iron gazebo dot the three-quarter acre of land, which serves as a natural outdoor backdrop for family portraits beneath the leaves or engagement shoots by the creek.
Focus On You Photography's unique children's fantasy portraits immerse young ones in whimsical scenes, whether exploring moments as a fairy, unearthing a pirate's booty of dubloons and Reader's Digest back issues, or flaunting leather jackets atop a miniature motorcycle. In addition to Kim's many specialties are her bike portraits, which capture the just-as-tender love between riders and their rides.
