One of a Kind Exhibitor Since 1981

In 1980 we did our first craft show in Vancouver at the East Cultural Center during which we conversed with other crafters about the biggest and best show in the country, and their response was the One of a Kind Show & Sale held at the Queen Elizabeth building in Toronto. By comparison to anything out west this sounded so spectacular, it was enough for us to make the trek across the country, and we did in order to see the show for ourselves.

The first product we made—our flying bird—was designed initially as a prop for a theatre production. This bird was so popular and so well received that we continued to make and sell them for many years to come. The reception from our customers really opened our eyes to the opportunity to sell our work at craft shows, and this eventually became a way of life for the both of us.


The One of a Kind Hall of Fame was created in 1999 to honour the quality, craftsmanship and outstanding achievements of our talented exhibitors. At each Christmas and Spring Show, we induct an artist who excels in their chosen medium, creating works that are exceptional both in their construction and in their level of creativity. As a One of a Kind participant for at least 5 years, our inductees act as ambassadors, and their dedication to the show, and to their craft, is undeniable.
