In a city bursting with renewed Buffalo pride, it seems only natural that Buffalo-themed décor is popping up more in local shops. From Buffalo-themed tables to butter lamb soaps, there’s no shortage of options. Here’s a guide to some of our favorites.
Butter lamb soaps
5560 Main St., Williamsville; Facebook
It’s an Easter tradition to hit the Broadway Market in search of a Malczewski’s Easter Butter Lamb. While the butter vanishes quickly – especially if there’s babka or placek on the table — butter lamb soap in a honey almond scent will put your lamb on display year-round for just $4. In addition to soap, check out more Buffalo-themed items like pillows ($45), Buffalo map coasters ($28), Buffalo mugs ($27), snow globes ($49.99), tin candles in scents like “Lake Erie Breeze” and “Buffalove” ($10), and plenty more.
