Handmade Arcade at Construction Junction celebrates anniversary
Fifteen years ago, Handmade Arcade, an independent craft fair began.
On April 27, shoppers will get to revisit the place where it all started — Construction Junction in Point Breeze.
As a way to celebrate the milestone, Handmade Arcade is presenting 30 aspiring crafters at “Show and Sell,” a pop-up market of vendors from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 27.
“We wanted to go back to our roots to where it all started,” said Jennifer Baron, director of marketing and outreach for Handmade Arcade. “We are committed to providing opportunities for brand new and emerging artists or maybe artists who are returning to the scene after taking some time off. It’s important to support first time vendors.”
