Tuesday Treats: One of a Kind

by Jen on Tuesday, July 26, 2011

For this week's Tuesday Treats, I wanted to feature some photos that I snapped last night at the One of a Kind media preview (which was on a boat- how great is that?). This annual event, which happens in December, showcases and sells various items such as clothing, jewelry and food that are handmade in limited quantities. Although I don't have the slightest "crafty" inclination in me (just ask my friends about my laughable homemade birthday cards), I do greatly appreciate the talent of those who do. Since this show is actually held in December, winter-themed decorations were all around us as we spent the warm summer evening checking out some exhibitors for this year's show and sailing the Vancouver waters.

{The PR girls were all wearing clothing from this designer and they all looked very chic. Be sure to keep an eye out for her pieces!}

{Sheila Wong provided sewing tips and made fabric flowers with guests}

{Dirty Apron catered the event with delicious sandwiches, cheeses and cured meats}

{...and they did desserts, too. That ginger snap was a dream of a cookie!}

I know that the actual event is a whiles away, but I went last year with the bestie and can attest to it being a lot of fun. The One of a Kind Christmas Show and Sale also hits Toronto and Chicago, so do check it out come December if you get a chance!


Wow, thanks for sharing. I am a designer and make one of a kind and limited edition boutique runs. It's very encouraging to see more of that out there.
