About Us

We opened!

Thin Ice opened in March of 2006  to provide a place for local and regional artists to sell their work to the local community.  We sell one of a kind jewelry, hand formed and wheel thrown pottery, handmade cards, hand blown as well as fused glass, hand turned wood bowls, hand sewn leather items, decorative wall art, kaleidoscopes, souvenirs, mugs, wind chimes, books and much, much more. 

We expanded!

In 2011 Thin Ice expanded to have room to work with even more local artists making handmade gifts and art.  We also wanted  to be able to have store events to bring the artists and the Buffalo community together. 

We expanded again! (sort of)

Shop Craft, located in the back area of Thin Ice, started out as a Holiday Pop Up Market in 2015 and turned into a permanent collaboration with some incredibly talented local artists. Cards, stationery, scarves, clothes, artwork, prints, and much, much more, this shop within a shop is worth a visit. Staffed by the artists themselves this is a great opportunity to meet some of the talented artists living and working in Buffalo!  Check out their website for hours or shoot them an email at hello@buffaloshopcraft.com
