Yes it’s true, I’m going to be selling at the spring One of a Kind in Toronto! This is truly a dream come true. As you may have read from my previous posts I’m a huge fan of the show. Ever since discovering it for the first time back in 2015 I was in love with the place and dreamed of selling there one day. It came sooner than I thought! The application process last fall was fairly extensive and when I got the news just before Christmas that I was accepted I nearly jumped out of my skin with excitement.
The details of how to make it all happen have been buzzing around in my head since Christmas. I’ve been paging through sample books and putting together freakishly (for me) large online orders to canvas and leather suppliers. After several trips to the states to pick up materials we are finally ready to start production.
I just finished hand printing all the fabric for the outside pockets on the bags and will be starting on some of my own sewing projects soon. I’ll be selling the waxed canvas bags, a new small purse style, placemats, zippered pouches and flag pillows at the show. I’ve also got to make a little display and think about what paper pieces to hand out like business cards or postcards etc.
So from now until then you know what I’ll be doing, lots of sewing! Wish me luck, and of course I’d love to see you there. You can find out more info here, it’s from March 29- April 2, lots of amazing items and sellers there. You really will walk around in wonder. I’m in the marketplace section and will be sure to post photos along the way.
Happy Saturday!! – Suzanne
