With less than a week away for Pittsburgh’s annual Handmade Arcade, excitement is brewing for customers to be able to shop over 200 vendors on a variety of categories, from crafts, clothing, home décor and more, all within David L. Lawrence Convention Center on Saturday, December 8th.
But before the event can go into effect, there will be one latest addition to this year’s Arcade that is sure to help establish even more excitement than the years before. On Friday, December 7th at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, the Handmade Arcade will host their first ever inaugural benefit, aptly called “The Cutting Edge”.
Hosted from 5:30 to 8:00pm, the event will showcase the capacity of Handmade Arcade to a small group of interested buyers, who will be able to shop from more than170 vendors (out of the 239 in total). Inside, guests will be treated to an array of food and drink while they are able to shop the vendors of the Arcade.
Not only will there be crafts and little goodie bags (that yes, you can curate on your own), but there will be live entertainment from DJ Jeff Bower. And let’s not forget some of the important things as well – food and a cash bar will be provided to those in attendance (and sorry to say, the event is only open to those 18 years old and older).
And the best part of the fundraiser? All of the proceeds from the event will be supporting the Handmade Arcade’s free admission, the Hands-On Handmade Activity Area, along with the Youth Maker Scholarship Program and Craft Corridor.
As there are only a limited amount of tickets lefts, be sure to purchase as soon as possible to be a part of the inaugural events for the Handmade Arcade!
