I can't go - but you can!
I’ll be in Florida at the end of March visiting the Aged Mother, eating early-bird dinners and hitting the local Target store pretty hard. Of course I can't wait, but it does mean I’ll miss the One of a Kind Show, which runs from March 31 to April 4 at the Direct Energy Centre. Judging from the press material, you should definitely go, though. If I was in town, I’d want to check out the fabulous glass and wood vases by Benoit Foyer, the gorgeous felt chair by John Booth and Arounna Khounnor of Bookhou Design and the lovely screen by one of my favourite furniture makers, Rob Brown of Equinox Interiors. Check out the pics below and see if you don’t agree that they’re all beautiful. I'd also hit the Ontario Crafts Council's special 900-square foot section that will feature innovative works in clay, glass, metal, wood, fibre and paper by 19 makers from eastern Ontario.
Tickets are just $12 ($10 online), while seniors and youths aged 13 – 17 are $6.50. Kids 12 and under get in free. Get yourself down there – any buy something – because I can’t!
