My Favourite Artisans at the One of a Kind Show (Spring 2017)

Yesterday I attended the One of a Kind Show in Toronto.  This is my third time attending the show, and it always is a great time.  This season did not disappoint!  I always love seeing what other crafty people are making, and I absolutely love seeing how artisans create their customized booth setups.

The Details

  • Craft Show: One of a Kind Show (oneofakindshow.com)
  • Date: Wednesday March 29 to Sunday April 2, 2017
  • Location: Enercare Centre, Exhibition Place, Toronto
  • Size: 500 artisans

My One of a Kind Show Haul

I was a spectator this season due to being on an extremely strict budget (maternity leave problems, ha!).  I didn’t expect to be able to come home with any goodies, but my friend Michelle spoiled me with a great gift for my son Jacob from Couleur-Moi! He is going to look so handsome in his new button-down shirt when he’s a little older. So cute.

You can see my haul from last year’s OOAK spring show over here on Instagram.

One of a Kind Show Stand-Out Booths

There were so many great artisans that it was hard to come up with a list of my favourites.  But here are 12 artisans who stood out to me with links to where you can find them online.  You can also visit them at the show until April 2, 2017.

Final Thoughts About the One of a Kind Show

If you are in the Toronto, Canada area, I recommend checking out the show and this season’s makers before Sunday April 2, 2017. I’ve only showcased 12 makers here but there is so much to see and experience. There is also a great contest going on for attendees to vote in in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. Definitely check it out if you can!
