Dan Desrosiers who owns the BNC was kind enough to let Artvoice use his sidewalk for almost two hours while AV staffers photographed the Last Minute Gift Guide cover on a frigid winter afternoon in mid-December.
Part of the allure of using the storefront can be attributed to a 12-foot Nutcracker guarding the front entrance. The other component was the incredible scent of Cinnamon-roasted Pecans and Almonds that were being prepared that day by Owner Dan Desrosiers. Desrosiers has mastered the craft of making fresh roasted nuts that are beautifully packaged and on display in his shop along with a fantastic collection of nutcrackers. In addition to selling sweet and salty varieties of roasted nuts, cashews, pistachios, you can purchase traditional French macarons and flavorful bubble teas. The Bavarian Nut Company is located at 822 Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo, NY / www.bavariannut.com.
And also a big thank you Ethan Johnson of Campus WheelWorks for loaning us the KHS 4 Season 1000 Fat Bike that’s great for biking in winter weather and on the Last Minute Gift Guide cover. Campus WheelWorks is located at 744 Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo NY / campuswheelworks.com.
