2 Dirty Aprons have done the work for you. We've walked the virtual isles of the One of a Kind online show and picked our favs of the season. With over 700 Canadian vendors, our walk was long! From jewelry, kitchen accessories, loungewear and other handmade goods, we think we've got your list covered. We are experts when it comes to the OOAK show. When Tessa was about 5 we started going religiously every year. It is always a full day event, with a planned stop to watch the fashion show, eat every possible food sample and talk to every vendor about their craft. A few years ago Tess was catching an evening flight for (yet another) ski trip across the world. It was the first day of the OOAK show but there was just no way she was missing it, so with the car packed to the brim with ski bags and clothes for a month worth of skiing, we went downtown before the flight and browsed the aisles. That is dedication. We really hope you enjoy our picks. Click on the images to bring you directly to the vendors' sites.
