The FabFam, we love to shop. We love to shop Canadian and we love to shop for unique and interesting gifts. So for us, hitting up the Toronto One of a Kind Show each year is a total highlight.
With hundreds of vendors from across Canada, this show is on now until December 6th. So grab your credit card and thank us later.
There were so many outstanding and unique, passionate vendors this year it was hard to narrow down favourites, but here are eight of the top stalls I loved a lot.
Pomp & Ceremony – stall Q25
For the fashionable guy who is hard to buy for – these are the magic ticket.
Tania Love – stall S34
A Toronto-based artist who creates the most beautiful hand screen printed scarves that are dyed with plant based inks (she forages for herself) in small batches.
This creates one of kind creations that look more like an art piece than fashion accessory.
I am a ceramics lover and if you are too, you will not be disappointed at this year’s show. I think ceramics really are the star of the show with their diversity and creativity.
Two of my favourite ceramics artists were:
Grace Eun Mi Lee – stall N08
Her quirky, yet practical designs are informed by micro-organisms.
Her creatures are so imaginative and memorable. I think a perfect gift for those who have everything. Who doesn’t need a grinning ring holder?
I also loved the sculptural designs of Montreal-based artist, Isabelle Huotcéramix – stall R37.
Delicate looking and filled with gorgeous pastel- coloured glazes.
Bags and Purses! There are a lot of stalls with really unique patterns and styles of bags and purses.
Hand & Feet Handmade – stall W57
Based out of Hamilton, H&F was one of my favourites because each eye-catching bag is completely hand-made from her own patterns.
Dani Press – stall F05
Her stationary is great, but this girl has pizazz. A hustler of the very best kind. Dani, a passionate dream follower, took her love of photography and travel and created a stationary company that donates 10% of their profits to www.thesenumbers.org
Phaulet – stall A06
A textile and surface company, I was attracted to their wall of vibrant pillows. I need that flamingo pillow in my life!
Sartoria – stall V52
When you think cashmere, you think sweater. Well, Sartoria thinks underwear! The softest, most luxurious, old-timey style underwear you could ever imagine. Made from upcycled cashmere and merino wool, these are the most luxurious and cozy underwear you’ll ever slip into. And yes, the sparkly crown pair is on my list…
From ceramics to bags, for everyone on your list. You have until December 6th to shop this unique show.
