2013 One of a Kind Christmas Show

More than 800 artisans from across Canada are showcasing their wares and some very fine fare for the annual One of a Kind Christmas Show at the Direct Energy Centre, Exhibition Place, Toronto from Nov. 28 to Dec. 8. Handcrafted but far from crafty, here’s a sneak peak at just some of the goods and goodies. And don’t miss Zoomer Day on Dec. 3 with a special Festive Best presentation by contributing editor Charmaine Gooden.
