The One Of A Kind Show happens in Toronto twice a year, at Easter and Christmas. I went with my neighbours yesterday. A very special place to do some Christmas shopping for unique handmade items.
Aisle after aisle of colourful well-stocked booths selling everything from tobogganing Christmas geese for your roof.....
....to a lifesize woodnymph emerging from a treetrunk, with driftwood hair blowing in the breeze.
Beautiful quilted table runners and placemats......
.... and gorgeous handmade quilts and teacosies, in vivid colours that lift your spirits and light your home with gladness.
Oh boy, I wish I was one of the rich'n'famous.... I'd buy one of everything!
And a special treat.... I met fellow blogger Shawn of Island Sweet in her booth. Shawn knits and spins in Newfoundland and creates beautiful handmade textiles and yarns. She told me she had sold all her stock, and was taking orders.... visit her at Island Sweet to see the gorgeous things she makes. Lovely to meet you at last, Shawn!
