Pittsburgh’s “Hall of Fame” craft fair is returning in December, just in time for the holiday shopping season. On Saturday, December 5, Handmade Arcade will set up shop at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center for eight hours of specialty goods from more than 150 innovative crafters and progressive do-it-yourself designers.
A Pittsburgh hotspot since 2004, Handmade Arcade has made a name for itself as the Steel city’s first and largest independent craft fair. Handmade Arcade is open from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm, and admission is free. Those who simply can’t wait until 11:00 am can purchase an Earlie Birdie pass to get inside at 10:00 am.
Keep an eye out for cool new things this year, such as the inaugural release of the Handmade Arcade Print publication “Things Making Things: A DIY Coloring Book.” Raffles, hands-on activities, music, puppet parades and more will be on site for crafters and shoppers of all ages. Check out the Handmade Arcade Facebook page for more details as they become available.
