JANUARY 27 – 29, 2019


By Hand Canada’s Artisan Gift Show is Canada’s premier wholesale show, providing retailers with a unique opportunity to purchase the highest quality Canadian Handmade goods.

For three days only, Canada’s most talented artists, artisans, and designers gather to promote their business and sell their works to retailers from coast to coast, all under one roof in the conveniently-located Pearson Convention Center.

Since 2001, By Hand has been the exclusive home to the finest product offering in the wholesale gift industry. Buyers from retail stores, galleries, boutiques, and museums are given a once-a-year opportunity to meet the artisans, purchase their works in bulk, and make a significant contribution to the Canadian Handmade community, which makes this event a truly special experience.
