2012 Buyer’s Market brings together craft producers, retailers

Innovation PEI

Artisans and craftspeople from across Prince Edward Island will meet retailers January 20 at the 12th annual Craft and Giftware Buyer’s Market in Charlottetown, says Innovation and Advanced Learning Minister Allen Roach.

“This event allows our craftspeople, artists and artisans a great marketing opportunity; and this event allows retailers to acquire unique Island-made items for their customers,” said Minister Roach.

“I would like to thank Prince Edward Island’s craft sector. Their work has great cultural, economic and tourism significance to our community. Retailers who attend this show will find unique creations that will add value to their businesses and allow them to offer customers artwork and crafts that are unique to Prince Edward Island.”

The Buyer’s Market will be open to registered retailers only. Retailers interested in attending this event can register by contacting Bonnie MacDonald, Innovation PEI, at or by calling 620-3508.

The annual Craft and Giftware Buyer’s Market is supported by Innovation PEI to help Island producers find markets for their work. The 2011 Craft and Giftware Buyer’s Market attracted over 200 retailers and included crafts and giftware from over 50 Island producers.
