Handmade Arcade is highly anticipated event that attracts more than 9,000 attendees in one day. HA provides craftspeople and artists working outside mainstream and fine arts sectors with a grassroots, high-visibility venue to sell wares, build community, network and share their artistic practice. Handmade Arcade, founded in 2004, is Pittsburgh’s first and largest independent craft fair. Now in its twelfth year, HA brings young, innovative crafters and progressive do-it-yourself designers to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center on December 5, 2015 to sell, their handmade, locally produced, and offbeat wares at a bustling marketplace.
Come join in one of the best, biggest, and brightest Holiday Shopping and Maker events in the US this Saturday and share good times with friends & family while finding incredible, Made In The US handcrafted goods.
This is year is extra special as Handmade Arcade is debuting their first ever publication, a fabulous Coloring Book called “Things Making Things”, designed for all ages (no, really) with the artwork of 10 local artists, including us (eeeeeeee!). The Coloring Books will be available for purchase from the Handmade Arcade Booth as well as participating artists and ALL proceeds benefit upcoming Handmade Arcade Outreach & Education projects.
And as always Early Birdie Shopping Passes are available for stress-free first looks before the crowds roll in.
