What's On at the One Of A Kind Show: Spring EditionWhile daylight saving time has its downfalls (including darker mornings and losing an hour of sleep on a weekend), there are some definite perks. Not only is it still sunny when you leave the office now, but more importantly spring is officially on its way! The season hasn't quite sprung yet, but with warmer temperatures coming and the first flowers of the year poking their blooms out, we can only assume its arrival is imminent. A new season also means the next One of a Kind Show! Here's what to look forward to at this year's spring show and sale.
The main draw of the One of a Kind Show? All the amazing shopping! The hundreds of artisans will be offering thousands of different things for you home, wardrobe, or pantry. There are lots of of new artisans showing off what they've got at spring's show. Check out Sara Allison-Chorabik's ONT Honey Creations at Booth A43, Jordan Belillti's Murphy&Jo Candle Co goods at Booth Q46A, or the adorable creations from Ayisha Gariba of The Bacon Berry at Booth P48R. It will be next to impossible to not fall in love with at least one unique item on sale!
Each season's sale and show boasts special displays and features according to the time of year. What's new for spring? First up, the 'Happy Birthday Canada Competition'. Makers were asked to 'sing' happy birthday (so to speak) to Canada using their unique skills. Guests will be able to view the creative competitors' contributions on display at the show. Visitors can also look forward to a SodaStream presented 'Hydration Lounge', a new drinks section featuring the best in small-batch wine, beer, and spirits, as well as the OOAK French Pavillion, where 8 artisans from the Parisian region will host a pop-up show with all kinds of handmade goods.
