Moving to the Buffalo Area without knowledge of what is around you can be intimidating. Intimidating, yes. Long lasting intimidation, no. Once you’ve moved into Allentown in the heart of Buffalo, NY, you’ll find yourself among friendly faces, helpful neighbors, and, most importantly, an abundance of small businesses that there is so much to learn about. 

The biggest struggle when moving into a new place can be the décor. We’ve created a list of wonderful places in the proximity of Allentown & The Elmwood Village of Buffalo to get you started on your own interior design for your home for the next year or more. 

Ro | Handcrafted Home Goods 

This local gem is located at 732 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, NY 14222. Their reputation is one of elegance and style. With creative and innovative designs throughout this décor boutique, you’ll be able to find the perfect statement pieces for your new place in no time at all. 

“On the weekends, we would go to estate sales to buy unique vintage pieces, repaint and upholster them, and give them new life. We were resourceful and loved rescuing beautifully designed pieces for people to incorporate into their homes” 

Put a Plant on It | Plant Shop

One may argue that plants are more friends than décor, but whatever your outlook, a plant is the perfect addition to a new place. Plants are great to have in the City of Buffalo, too, because of the often cold & dreary days we experience. Plants add a bit of greenery but also a bit of fresh air to filter out the dust, allergens, and more that come with the territory of living in a city that loves the snow. You can grab your new plant friend at 715 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, NY 14222. 

Everything Elmwood | Gift Shop

Everything Elmwood is a gift shop from the get go…but who ever said you can’t “gift” yourself the unique things they have?? Located at 740 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, NY 14222, this shop has everything from sushi plates to knick-knacks to accessories, but most importantly, they have great décor to help fill any empty spaces with your style. 

The Knotted Fox | Vintage Rugs

Looking for something truly unique for your space? Head on over to the Knotted Fox on 501 Delaware Ave, Buffalo, NY 14202. The Knotted Fox has beautifully curated, vintage rugs to keep your space feeling like home with a great bit of style. Having all different sizes, lengths, and artistry, you might just find the best piece of décor for your apartment. 

Babycakes Flores Flower Shop | Florist 

Moving right along, we have a necessary place for you on this list – Babycakes Flores Flower Shop! What livens a place up more than a bouquet of flowers? Getting flowers for your home not only adds some brightness to your space but they smell wonderful. Keep your air in your place fresh & fragrant by visiting this florist at 846 Main St. Buffalo, NY 14202.

MiMo Decor | Furniture & Home Décor
