Pittsburgh filmmaker Brian Staszal posted a link to his video about HandMade Arcade in the comments back in December. It is a really nice look at the handmade festivities so I wanted to share the video in a post too. Even if you missed the handmade marketplace in December – most of the vendors have online websites or a shop at Etsy too. The video includes an interview with Jennifer Barron – check out her Etsy Shop Fresh Popcorn Productions and the “Black and Gold is the new black t-shirt. Also seen at Handmade Arcade are the guys from Campfire Goods – they have lots of great t-shirts too.
Pittsburgh’s largest indie craft fair, Handmade Arcade, took over the Hunt Armory in Shadyside December 12, 2009. It was a challenge to show so much talent and all the hard work that went into making the event a success in a short video.
