The Spring Thing Trunk Show
Started in December of 2007, the first City of Craft Fair was a unique blend of trade show and lively exhibition. It was started by craft enthusiasts Becky Johnson, Leah Buckareff and Jen Anisef who felt the need for celebration and collaboration of the unique craft culture in Toronto.
At first I was a bit skeptical of the unique presentation of the show; however, this year's tightly-knit show features over 18 local vendors who will be set up in suitcases throughout the shop selling their lovely handmade goodies. It reminds me of the traveling salesperson.
The small curated show offers a wide array of crafts from elegant jewelry to handspun yarns, buttons, beautiful brooches, tote bags, watercolor portraits and hand-bound books that are all locally-made and are a quality one-of-a-kind pieces from artists around the city.
Not only do you get a chance to get locally-made crafts for fair prices, but you also get a chance to meet the artists who are responsible for the scrumptious creations. Whether shopping for Mother's Day (which is just right around the corner), or for that special someone, there is something for everyone at The Spring Thing Trunk Show.
