Spring is almost here, which means planning for weddings, showers, Easter, Passover, Mother’s Day and graduations! If you have a lot of gifts to buy, there’s no better place to visit than the One of a Kind Show and Sale 2018. This shorter version of the popular Christmas show takes place from March 28, 2018 to April 3, 2018 at the Enercare Centre in Toronto. (We’re giving away two pairs of tickets to the show…see giveaway details below.)
You’ll be able to shop for adult and children’s clothing, jewelry, fashion accessories, art, glass objects, metal, home decor, furniture, skincare products, toys, and gourmet foods at the show. One of the great things about shopping at the One of a Kind Spring Show is each product must be handcrafted so you are sure to find unique gifts.
If you want to take a break from shopping, there are several fashion shows taking place daily at the Main Stage. There are also special presentations on the Main Stage including:
- Rebecca Field Jager of Zoomer Magazine will present her gift picks from the show on Wed., March 28, 2018 at 3 p.m.;
- Wendy Liu of @withwendy will highlight her favourite selections from the show on Sat., March 31, 2018 at 3 p.m.;
- Alyssa Garrison will showcase her favourite gift ideas from the show on Sun., Apr. 1, 2018 at 3 p.m.
I’ve chosen some of my favourite finds from the upcoming One of a Kind Spring Show and Sale 2018 and highlighted them below:
Concrete Planters from Double L Decor
These concrete planters from Double L Decor will really bring a breath of spring into your home. Wouldn’t they look great in your kitchen or bathroom? Planters start at $23. Find Double L Decor at Booth F34.
Milford Vintage Gold and Aurora Borealis Necklace from Green Bijou Jewellery
The Milford Vintage Gold and Aurora Borealis Necklace, $85, is from one of my favourite vendors at the show: Green Bijou Jewellery. The necklace is 20″ in length and features gold-plating and a brass spiga chain. It would make a great bridesmaid’s gift or graduation present. Or better yet, buy it for yourself. Find Green Bijou Jewellery at Booth I20.
Bamboo Play Dress in Teal from Red Thread Design
The Bamboo Play Dress in Teal, $60, from Red Thread Design is not only adorable, it’s ethically made in Canada. Available in sizes 2-14 (some sizes sold out), this dress can grow with your child, initially being worn as a dress only and then with leggings as your child grows. Find Red Thread Design at Booth E14 at the show.
