As fans of all things handmade, the annual One of a Kind Christmas Show and Sale is one of the Covet Garden team's favourite places to hang out, meet artisans and artists and, yes, do a little bit of shopping. And this year promises to be an even bigger party as OOAK is celebrating its 40th birthday!
The maker movement has never been stronger, and the show unites the best of Canadian Craft all the Direct Energy Centre’s massive roof. For ten days, visitors can explore the cutting edge of craft with everything from traditionally made ceramics to laser cut and 3D printed projects. And makers and buyers can build a deeper understanding of the creative process through DIY workshops and demonstrations.
It’s also an affordable way to bring great objects of beauty into your home. The show starts November 27th and runs until December 7th but here’s a preview of some of our favourite first time vendors to help you start planning your visit!
