One of a Kind Show launches online store
Now every day is like the One of a Kind Show in Toronto - without the schlep to and from the Ex. The city's biggest craft show packs hundreds of artisans from all over Canada into the Direct Energy Centre every spring and fall; today, they launched an online shop featuring hundreds of handmade items from 300 creators.
Just like the real-life OOAK, you'll find everything from clothing and jewelry to soap and hot sauce. Past vendors from the show have been invited to sell on the site, with some brand-new ones getting on board as well. Once you place an order, it's filled and shipped by the artist; think of the site as a miniature Etsy, but with a selection process that cuts down on any possible Regretsy (RIP) factor.
Among the offerings are a slew of Toronto favourites: relaxed pieces from Skinny Sweats, Crywolf tees, and womenswear by Anu Raina (including that infamous TTC subway scarf). On the home goods side, there's textiles by Avril Loreti (I'm finally gonna spring for one of her giant paint chip table runners).
