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.”
Handmade Arcade is a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit that believes in the power of making. We support makers by connecting them with consumers and resources to improve their craft and business. We offer workshops, classes, and opportunities to the regional maker community year-round, including hosting one of the most extensive independent maker fairs in the Northeast.Learn More
