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.”

Besides vendors, the event features food and beverage trucks.

Admission is free.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
