A One of a Kind Event: The One of a Kind Show

Fun | Written on November 3, 2015

There is a lot that is unique to Liberty Village. The atmosphere here is a noticeable mix of city charm, culture, vitality, creativity and diversity. It’s eclectic and electric. The people and businesses that call Liberty Village home embrace and showcase this uniqueness to the fullest and that’s one of the reasons that Liberty Village is so distinct from other areas in Toronto.

The One of a Kind Show is a marketplace that brings together original crafts and persons interested in viewing or purchasing these unique works made by incredibly talented artisans. It’s a great opportunity for persons from Liberty Village and other areas in Toronto to get those one of a kind and handmade pieces to complete a space, add to their wardrobe or show off in some other way. It is, in short, a one of a kind event. This year’s show includes:

One of a Kind Feature Display – Choice pieces that make perfect gifts (for yourself or others) have been selected by experts in food, art, design and wellness. This display will offer a platform for these items to be showcased to event attendees.

One of a Kind Wreath Competition – Get inspired for the holidays by this presentation of festive wreaths. Wreath makers will compete to create a one of a kind wreath in the medium of their choice. The top three wreath makers will be awarded prizes. Additionally, event attendees will be invited to vote for the “People’s Choice” wreath winner.

One of a Kind Walk of Fame – This induction ceremony celebrates the “one of a kind” work of selected artisans, craftsmen and others. This year’s honourees are designers Don and Suzanne Zacharias of Cedar Mountain Studios. Learn more about them here.
