Buffalo Collective has a rich history of investing in the Buffalo Community. Over the last 8 years owners Colleen Pandy & Jillian Cannan, have been working to keep their small business small and local. When COVID hit, the company had to shift focus. As a social experience based business, the struggle during the shutdown lingered. In early spring Loaded Lumber decided to host a Summer Market series, featuring local artisans, food trucks and vendors to showcase their items every Saturday at the flagship downtown location. It has been a SMASHING success! Located on the sprawling Richardson Olmsted Campus, the Buffalo Holiday Market has proven each week that the people of Buffalo are ready to embrace a special shopping event in its city. Buffalo loves their festivals, and this experience has once again proven that. 


Collen and Jill are both Veteran spouses, and Colleen lived in Europe during the holiday season where she was captivated by their Christmas Markets. Always wishing Buffalo could one day have a similar experience, she and Jill decided it was time! Bringing our experience as business owners, and a successful market, the interest in our Holiday Market is exploding overnight.


The Buffalo Holiday Market in partnership with Buffalo Collective, The Richardson Olmsted Campus, P.U.N.T., and Hope Rises will be featuring vendors from across the area showcasing their artisan products, visits from Santa , special musical guests and of course mulled wine, beer and hot cocoa. We believe your company would be the perfect fit to sponsor the market through a chalet, kids zone, Santa or one of our special events - there are a number of opportunities available! You too can be a part of the magic this holiday season.

Last year the Buffalo Holiday Market teamed up with P.U.N.T.  Pediatric Cancer Collaborative to join in their mission of standing behind WNY families fighting pediatric cancer raising $26,000. It is our Hope that this Holiday Season we can help fund their Home for the Holidays Program. Your donation to P.U.N.T. Pediatric Cancer Collaborative this season can help bring programming to the market that will continue to raise funds for this incredible, locally based charity. The Home for the Holidays Fund aims to help families facing pediatric cancer, by covering home expenses and giving parents in the fight for their child's life the incredible gift of peace of mind this holiday season. We invite you to join hands and hearts with us this holiday season to lift families facing one the worst plights imaginable during the “most wonderful time of the year.”

This year we are Thrilled to partner with the Richardson Olmsted Campus. The Richardson Olmsted Campus is a 42-acre site in the heart of Buffalo’s cultural corridor. Building by building, greenspace by greenspace, this National Historic Landmark is being creatively reimagined, repurposed, and returned to you. The rehabilitation of the Richardson Olmsted Campus will provide a gathering place for architectural enthusiasts, educational and cultural programming and and recreational activities for the enjoyment of all.


In addition to teaming up with P.U.N.T.  Pediatric Cancer Collaborative, and the Richardson Olmsted Campus, the Buffalo Holiday Market has also formed a partnership with Hope Rises. Hope Rises, founded in 2017 by award winning journalist Kate Glaser, ignites hope through love and goodwill across the globe. We do not just tell good news – we make good news happen. Together, with our Hope Rises community of charitable hearts, we have raised more than $600,000 since our beginning and we are not stopping anytime soon! 100% of all money raised gets pushed right back out to nonprofits, families and individuals in need across the world.
