the One of a Kind Show
friends have been talking about it for three months
and they were right, it is a Great Show!
I am sharing with you the booths that I found lovely, sweet, amazing and pretty
focused on yarn, textiles, prints, paperwork and that natural comforting look
and... you don't need to live in Canada to find them because they all have online shops!
is that good news or what?!
now let's get started with this tour...
all pictures taken with my iPhone
first is Bookhou, based in Toronto
they do an amazing job with their screen prints on textiles, using natural colors
I was lucky to meet Arounna, the inspiring and creative woman behind this brand
then we meet Vintage Baby Revival
mainly focused on babies, but who can resist their cute owl designs?
all hand knitted and available in their Etsy Shop
Tracey from the pretty blog helana and ali made me check out the Pi'lo booth
I am so glad you did Tracey!
well, that same feel was here, with Christmas ornaments out of felt, wood and cotton
I felt at home immediately, also with many thanks to Amanda from the pretty blog MPERFECTION
next are the cute and photogenetic bunnies from Sonja
these sleeping beauties are handsewn from vintage sweaters made of natural (mainly wool) fibers
wouldn't they look cute in their vintage cups in every corner of your house?
the good news is the link to Sonja's Etsy shop
on the show were a few card and paper designers
but Flakespaperie was definitely my favorite
the simple and effective screen print designs presented on a mint green wall stole my heart
and of course the postcards with the Amsterdam bike on a canal... how could I resist?
I talked to wonderful Ashley who is the designer, printmaker and boss lady behind Flakespaperie
last but not least in this feature is Heidi van Veen Designs
of course her Dutch last name caught my eye, haha
but I was overwhelmed by her pretty puppets and colorful designs for kids!
mister Fox is my absolute favorite, you can find him and his friends through Heidi's FaceBook page
and this is my precious catch of the day
along with the cutest magnets and buttons from babyelephantdesigns ~ a sweet newbie to the show
combined with a delicious coffee, some knitting and my warm feet by the fire place
I hope you enjoyed the tour with me and got inspired by these wonderful ladies!
I didn't get to see all booths, so I am going there again and probably show you more in a few days...
for anyone near Toronto, the show is on untill Dec 4th at the Direct Energy Centre
