Welcome

Are you a craft hobbyist, craft enthusiast, craft rookie — and interested in joining Pittsburgh’s craft and maker scene?

This is the event for YOU!

Handmade Arcade invites crafters
who are just starting out to participate in
our first-ever SPRING POP-UP MARKET
at Construction Junction on Saturday, April 27.


The application form will open on February 1, 2019, at 12 a.m.

Who qualifies?

This indie craft pop-up market is for crafters who are starting out and who make things by hand. It’s not for craft artists who make and sell their work full-time, or sell at large craft fairs and festivals (such as Handmade Arcade,* Three Rivers Arts Festival, I Made It! for the Holidays, etc.).

It’s OK if you’ve dabbled on Etsy or sold your wares at a local independent store, but think of this market as a fun and fresh event for emerging crafters and new makers!

Unsure if this show is right for you? Drop us a line! info@handmadearcade.org

*Excluding Craft Corridor
