Handmade Arcade Brings Back Live Events with In-person Summer Pop-up and Hybrid Winter Marketplace

Handmade Arcade is excited to announce its return to in-person events starting with its emerging maker pop-up, Show and Sell on August 7, 2021, at Construction Junction. The organization's flagship winter marketplace will also have an in-person component this year, returning to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center from December 3-4. Maker applications for the winter market are open now through August 13, 2021. Preceding the in-person event will be a virtual 3-day marketplace hosted here online.

“This year’s hybrid winter marketplace will have the best of both worlds!” says Handmade Arcade’s Executive Director Tricia Brancolini-Foley. “ The virtual marketplace allows customers from all over the country to shop our makers’ goods while the in-person event allows regional shoppers to meet the makers and interact with their products.”
