Glass and gift shop moves to downtown Buffalo

A high-end glass and gift shop that’s been located in the Village of Williamsville for several years has relocated to prime first-floor space on Delaware Avenue in downtown Buffalo.

Abino Mills Glassworks, owned by Connie Constantine and son Ted, took up about 2,000 square feet of space on the ground floor of First Amherst Development Group LLC’s building at 255 Delaware, near the corner of Chippewa Street.

The store produces custom-etched glassware, and marks the first such retail gift shop on lower Delaware since Pitt Petri closed several years ago, said First Amherst President Benjamin Obletz.

“It’s nice to see retail coming back to Delaware, and they’re thrilled with the foot traffic they’ve been receiving just the last week or two,” he said.
