CLARION – The public is invited to attend the third annual PA Wilds Conservation Shop Buyer’s Market from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, 2019.
The trade show will be held in the Gemmell Student Complex Multi-Purpose Room at Clarion University.
“This one-day trade show provides the perfect opportunity to find quality wares, gifts, foods and beverages that were crafted in the Pennsylvania Wilds,” said Libby Bloomquist, who oversees the PA Wilds Conservation Shop.
“This event allows the public to shop for products from artisans who may be from more remote locations in the Wilds that they may not normally have access to.”
The trade show format brings a variety of products together in one location and allows buyers to browse products and make selections on the spot.
A separate wholesale showcase will be available to registered retailers from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Retailers who registered by Feb. 18 will be admitted for free.
Hosted by the PA Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship and the Wilds Cooperative of Pennsylvania (WCO), in partnership with the Clarion University Small Business Development Center, the Buyer’s Market is a “made local, sell local” themed event.
Exhibitors at the event are juried artisans who participate in the Wilds Cooperative of Pennsylvania, a network of creative makers and entrepreneurs living and making products in the 12.5-county Pennsylvania Wilds region.
