It feels like just yesterday that I was up on the One of a Kind Show stage talking about my favourite things from the winter show, but alas the spring show is already upon us! In extremely exciting news, this season the OOAK show is collaborating with 40 Canadian Etsy designers in an effort to bring the online marketplace to a live venue; giving you a prime opportunity to score crazy things like these amazing dolls made by Heather Saunders Needlings above. Don’t you just love them?

As always, you can expect to find rows upon rows of talented artisans (there’s 450 of them this year to be exact) offering everything from Canadian-made clothing and art to handmade beauty products. And don’t forget about the incredible food section! This year the show runs from March 27th-31st at the Direct Energy Centre in the Exhibition Place and I have 10 pairs to give away!

All you have to do to get a pair is FOLLOW me on Twitter and tweet: “I heart @GracieCarroll x @OOAK_Toronto and I want a free pair of tickets to the #OOAK13 #MADEHERE show!

The first 10 people to tweet for these tickets will receive a special link and code to reserve their tickets!
