One of a Kind Show & Sale Nov 26-Dec6

This is a special show geared towards the original gift shopper.  Unlike, the local indoor mall with the collection of your usual franchise retailers and not to mention food court, the One of a kind Show features the great quality of hand craftsmanship rather than bulk manufactured. Most items are truly one of a kind. From slate chalk boards, hand knit coffee cup holders to artisan butter tarts and delectable spreads.  This Show has that what-should-I-buy-them-for-the- holidays solution. 
For kids, there are quite a few booths, I particularly like the big puppet booth by Steven Barkley of Diabolo Puppets (booth B09), all fuzzy with the big eyes (hours of fun!)
The paper art created by Mono  (Sooeon) for Silkpup (Booth D13) carefully cut specialty paper strategically placed into framed art works or a holiday card.
That sweet and savoury satisfaction of maple bacon peanut butter on toast from Monkey Butter (booth G24) and how can I forget my favourite sweet crunchy delights from Maureen & Rob Robinson of Milsean Shoppe (booth H44) where their biggest seller is the Demerara Butter Crunch.
There’s something for everyone, I highly recommend attending at least once, even if its just to see what they have. Don’t be caught up in what you think the prices will be because there are some amazing deals to be had at the show.  There is a good find for every price bracket here. All your senses will thank you.
Takes place at the Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place.

Toronto Vintage show March 6-7, 2015

This is one of the few shows I get really excited about!  I source most of my outerwear here, especially the winter gear.  The quality of products are usually impeccable, well kept over the years. Some vendors will even have a story behind the item you’re looking at.  

When I’m at the entrance revving up to shop, I keep a few things in mind:

Budget: I will have a limited cash amount with me that will cap my spending.  Cash is king, also easier to negotiate with cash too.

Open mind: It may not be the the precise colour/size you were hoping for but depending on the material and cut, you might be surprised that altering could be an option.

Negotiate (respectfully): I always negotiate the price but it works best when you are purchasing a volume of items.  If your friends are each looking at an item in the same booth, lump together your items to see if you can negotiate a price. Don’t start low balling to the point of insult, understand they have a business to uphold as well.

Missed it? Don’t worry, they’ll be back in the fall!

Here are the great vintage finds I found this time:

Artist Project 2015 Feb 19-22

Discover the Art piece you’ve been waiting for!
Starting tonight is an art fair in its eighth year. In the beginnings this fair featured local Ontario artists. Since then it has grown to feature mostly Canadian artwork. This year there is an  international presence among the 250+ artists. Unlike its sister show Art Toronto, this is the one where the artists are directly involved, no middle man.  You can ask the questions about their work.  Its a much more relaxed and personable experience. You can find pieces starting at $50 and up!
At tonight’s Opening night you get to sip nibble and mingle with the novice and experienced art collectors. For the first time this year there are performances by Artist Alex Beriault Artist in a box. Music will keep your inspiration flowing when  DJ Vinny Grüvhunter and DJ J-Lah complete the exploring experience.
VIP access gets you in early tonight at 5-7. Opening party at tonight 7-10.

Hope to see you there!!
