As part of its 15th anniversary as Pittsburgh’s first and largest independent craft fair, Handmade Arcade presents SHOW AND SELL: a Spring pop-up marketplace featuring 30 aspiring crafters right where it all began in 2004.

Join us at Construction Junction in Point Breeze to meet and shop from a new generation of Pittsburgh crafters, while enjoying free maker activities and more!

Handmade products, goods and wares for sale will include jewelry, accessories, home decor, fashion and clothing, bath and body products, original artwork in a variety of media, children’s products, and more.

Attendees can make original zines with Pittsburgh Zine Fair and create Found Object Wearables with Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, and can sample and purchase Crafted Apple, a special collaborative release from Handmade Arcade and Threadbare Cider.

Taking place during Construction Junction’s ongoing Earth Month celebration, Show and Sell will also feature on-site food and beverage trucks such as Blackberry Meadows Farm, Zeke’s Coffee and the Pittsburgh Pierogi Truck.
