At least two artists with local ties will display and sell unique and handmade items at the 15th annual Handmade Arcade craft show next Saturday in Pittsburgh.

Considered Pittsburgh’s largest craft fair, the free event will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 7 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

Included among the 250 vendors at the show will be 2012 Seneca Valley High graduate Ashley Olinger and Adams Township resident Jaci Dean.

Dean makes hand-embroidered gifts, novelties and artwork.

Olinger, who now lives in Stanton Heights, creates handmade paper goods such as cards and stickers.
