The One of a Kind Show is back and just in time for all of your Christmas shopping needs. The show runs from Nov 26 to Dec 6 and showcases over 800 artisans, designers and craftspeople. The show provides guests with the opportunity to chat with the makers of the products and purchase ‘one of a kind’ products that are made locally. Visitors to the show can expect to find home décor, fashion items, jewellery, visual art, toys and gourmet food items.
I went to the One of a Kind Show on the opening day and discovered tons of unique finds. Luckily the venue is set-up by shopping districts such as flavours, fashion, green, rising stars and visual art gallery so it was easy to navigate throughout the aisles to shop in the areas you’re most interested in. I ended up walking up and down every aisle TWICE and it was well worth it. I found some really neat products in almost every category, but of course I spent hours in the food section sampling tons of delicious items.
Here are my top 15 finds at the show!
