BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Elmwood Village brought something new to this year's Small Business Saturday: Christmas trees.
"We knew that there wasn't really a place to get Christmas trees in the city anymore, so we decided to bring Christmas trees and wreaths," said Angela Keppel, a Village committee member.
"There's this super romantic idea of the city or urban tree lot, and like, it's disappeared," said Matthew Dore, who helped bring the trees back.
The Village is calling it the EVergreen Bazaar.
Dore helped grow and prep the trees, as well as set up Saturday's display.
The idea to sell trees on Elmwood and Bidwell had been almost a year in the making.
"We were just sitting around talking, and I asked 'Whatever happened to the trees?'" he said.
He was talking with long time village resident Barbara O'Brien.
