Handmade Marvels

One of the best parts of attending a shopping experience like Handmade Arcade is scoring something you just can not find on your average mall store shelves.  One of the greatest examples of this can be seen in our amazing jewelry vendors this year. We have some of the nation’s finest craftspeople selling truly one-of-a-kind treasures that you will not find anywhere else in the ‘Burgh this holiday season.  Here is a tiny sample of some of our amazing jewelry offerings this year.  Be sure to come and see them all at Handmade Arcade on Saturday, December 7th at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center from 11-7pm.
