Similar to most brilliant ideas, the One Of A Kind Show was born out of a simple desire for something more. Premiering at Toronto's Queen Elizabeth Building in December 1975, the "craft show" was the brainchild of Steven Levy, Martin Rumack and June Bibby. June (herself an artisan) couldn't find a place to sell her work before Christmas, so the three friends decided to create their own holiday shopping venue. After a great deal of leg work and countless all-nighters, the trio launched the first One Of A Kind Show, which encompassed 25 000 square feet and 80 participants.
The One Of A Kind concept expanded in 1979 to include the One Of A Kind Spring Show, and again in 2014 to launch One Of A Kind Online at www.oneofakindonlineshop.com.
