Handmade Arcade is a DIY indie craft fair held in Pittsburgh. Over the past 11 years the event has grown to over 150 local vendors bringing unique handmade items to shoppers. This was my first time participating and I will definetly be back for the next one. It felt like I was browsing a life size Etsy shop! Every item was more unique than the next and it’s great to support small businesses (especially out of Pittsburgh!!) Below are some of my favorite finds and links to browse their online sites. Great place to find unique presents for your favorite yinzer!
Deanna Mulye – Roses made from old book pages
Rock Salt Vintage – Hand-made Jewelry
The National Anthem – Home Decor Prints and Posters
Colette Paperie – Greeting Cards and Stationary (HILARIOUS sayings.)

Whimsical Wonders – Silverware Jewelry
Oh and here’s a comical picture of my mother dancing with a puppet.
