Do you want your work showcased in gift shops, craft galleries and museum stores across the country? Are you looking to start or expand your wholesale business? Do you have questions about your product line, pricing or booth display?

The Buyers Market of American Craft is the nation’s largest wholesale tradeshow for artists who make their work by hand in the U.S. and Canada. Our show is held twice annually: February, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, and summer, at the Baltimore Convention Center.

There’s no better place to make the most of face-to-face communication when attracting and building lasting business relationships. But did you know exhibiting is also one of the most efficient and valuable methods of acquiring new customers?

Studio artists work an all-consuming schedule, producing and often traveling seasonally to more than a dozen outdoor art fairs and craft festivals. It has always been our mission to provide you with the tools and systems that keep you in the studio doing what you love, while at the same time making a good living.

Today, artists can choose to spend more of their time making work and less time on the road.

Our reputation and staff bring in the most qualified ready-to-buy wholesale craft buyers in the industry. Craft gallery and specialty shop owners make up the largest percentage of our attendance. Additional attendees include:

  • Museum shops and curators
  • Boutiques and clothing stores
  • Department stores

  • Zoos and aquariums
  • Jewelry stores
  • Mail order catalogs
  • Corporate gift buyers
