  1. I love to be exposed to new things and be able to talk to the person who made it or is part of ti. It gives the things you buy more meaning, and makes for better gifts. You never know what you will come out with. Also I like supporting individual people and small businesses.

  6. Even though I'm already in the Holiday spirit, The OOAK Show is my "launching pad" into everything I love about this time of year. I get some (sometimes all) of my shopping done and I ALWAYS get something fun for myself. I can't wait!!

  7. My best friend and I have almost identical taste in things. I usually find something she likes only to find out that she has it already, or maybe in a different color. I love how OOAK Show gives me a lot more ideas on what to get her and I'm 100% sure she won't have it yet! :-) I also love meeting the artisans so passionate about their craft!!!! SO INSPIRING!

  16. I love browsing the grounds and visting the unique vendors especially in the Flavours, Photography, Home Decor and Fashion Accessories section. It's always fun to interact and talk to the Artisans about their specialty, it makes for a more personal holiday shopping experience. I love being able to support the Artisans and telling my gift recipients a tid-bit or story about the Artisan and/or one-of-a-kind product or item I got them @russellreenia

  21. One of a Kind Show is a yearly pilgrimage on my journey to was a conscious life. Each year I make a list and patiently wait to purchase the items from a local artisan at this show. What I can't find I make myself or buy on etsy.

    Thank you for letting me visit the show again this year.
