Yesterday I wandered around the One Of A Kind show for over 4 hours!  A tradition here in a Toronto since 1975, the OOAK runs until December 8 at the Direct Energy Center and showcases the work of 800 + artisans. I always find gifts for the people on my list at OOAK, here are some suggestions for the people who might be on yours.

  1. For the budding fashionista - a stunning dress from Redfish
  2. For the foodie - the best tasting spring rolls from Saigon Soul Food
  3. For the student - a leather and felt satchel perfectly sized for a laptop from C comme Ca
  4. For those friends who just bought a house - a walnut serving platter from Swaine Street Woodworking
