We are very excited to be vendors at this year’s Handmade Arcade that is held in Pittsburgh, PA now in its seventh year, it is Pittsburgh’s largest indie craft fair. This year’s fair is one-day event taking place on Saturday, April 16 from 11am-7pm. Handmade Arcade is excited to announce a new central location in an appropriately green-for-spring venue: the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown. You can expect great handcrafted, indie merchandise, from over 100 vendors both local and out-of-state. The fair is free, easy to get to and has more space then ever before. Handmade Arcade also offers Early Bird passes to allow you access before the general public. The tickets are available for just $15, limited to only 200 tickets. You can get your passes here.
Handmade Arcade is run by a collective of creative Pittsburghers who have helped to shape and bolster Pittsburgh’s independent craft scene over the past six years. Founded in 2004 — when no events in the Pittsburgh region served the burgeoning DIY craft community — Handmade Arcade provides crafters working outside the mainstream/fine arts sector with a grassroots high-visibility venue to sell wares and build community.

This is our first time as vendors at Handmade Arcade and we are so excited. We absolutely love Pittsburgh and are always looking for a reason to go back, visit friends and enjoy one of our favorite neighboring cities. We’ll have all the usuals with us in our booth – gigposters, art prints, clothing, pillows, greeting cards, test prints, hand bound test-print books and so much more. Keep an eye out for an exclusive Pittsburgh art print, too – available for the first time at Handmade Arcade.
Buffalo friends – you need to make the drive down, it’s a short 3.5 hour drive and will certainly be worth your while!
