Buyers Market Expects Increased Attendance for Summer Show

The Philadelphia Buyers Market of American Craft summer show will be held August 2-4, 2008, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. The biannual event is the largest wholesale-only tradeshow of handcrafts made by American and Canadian artists. It attracts thousands of retail gift shops, museum stores and galleries that sell fine handcrafted jewelry, glass art, furniture, ceramics, art made from recycled goods and more.

More than 800 companies submitted pre-registrations for the August Buyers Market during the winter tradeshow in February. The result is attendee numbers that are more than four times greater than last year (as of April 2008).

Among the retailers that have already registered for the summer Buyers Market of American Craft are the National Museum of Women in the Arts (Washington, D.C.), Jenss Decor (Amherst, N.Y.), Artisans Gallery (Santa Cruz, Calif.), Topeo Gallery (New Hope, Pa.), Pinch Gallery (Northampton, Mass.), Appalachian Spring (Falls Church, Va.), 16 Hands (Ann Arbor, Mich.), Hanson Galleries (Houston, Texas), Glass Reunions of Key West (Key West, Fla.), Earthenworks Gallery (La Conner, Wash.), Smithsonian Business Ventures (Washington, D.C.), and Pura Vida Gallery (Jerome, Ariz.).
