One of a Kind Show - Vancouver

This weekend was the first ever One of a Kind Show here in Vancouver so I took a trip down to check it out. I was suprised not only how big it was, but also at the participation from crafters and artists south of the border. There was representation as far south as New Orleans, but the majority came from the Pacific Northwest.

(All items shown from Regional Assembly of Text - apologies for the blurry photos here - it was so crowded in that little booth - it was nearly impossible to take any photos). Note: Malaspina Printers had some beautiful prints and to be honest I felt strange to take pictures there - but they are having a Winter Print Festival this coming Thursday, Nov. 27th from 6 - 8pm. They are located on Granville Island at 1555 Duranleau Street.

I love your typewriter pillow and chalk board, great buying. So many creative and funky artists. I am quite jealous that there isn't a One of a Kind show here in Australia! :)

Thank you for featuring Lynn Whipple! I love her work! I actually got a piece of hers about 7 years ago and I still adore it.
