We may have just been hit by another 10 inches of snow, but I’m stubbornly believing Spring is right around the corner. If it isn’t, I’m seriously going to go all White Witch style on Northern Ontario, complete with a sweet ice crown a-la-Tilda Swinton.
The One of a Kind Show in Toronto though is a beckoning light through March’s snowy stubbornness and is always a delight to attend each Spring.
Where as during the Christmas OOAKS my purchases are strictly gift-giving, (I picked up a gorgeous print of Big Sur for Jeff one year from Matt Kowalski Photography), Spring is the perfect time for self renewal and a chance to add a bit of a refresh to your wardrobe or home.
Etsy plays host again this year at the One of a Kind Show to a vibrant group of Etsy Sellers, showcasing their work and the community in a dedicated Etsy section at the show.
And with ticket purchases you can donate to the most excellent Girls Rock Camp Toronto, the One of a Kind Show’s dedicated charity for Spring 2015. I attended a Girls Rock Camp recital a few years back and it was pretty awesome to say the least, they’re a wonderful charity empowering young women through music.
So if you’re in Toronto or headed that way soon here are some of the event details at a glance:
WHEN: Wednesday, March 25th – Sunday, March 29th, 2015.
WHERE: Direct Energy Centre, Exhibition Place, M6K 3C3 Toronto, Canada.
