The holidays bring all sorts of dilemmas, such as what to get the person who likes nothing and when to begin blocking off the chimney. Solve one of these problems with today's deal: for $10, you get two tickets to the One of a Kind Show and Sale at the New Vancouver Convention Centre (a $20 value). The bright works and fashions of more than 200 artisans colour the One of a Kind Show, an upscale crafts show running from December 9 to 12, that features a plethora of inventive items for gifting and hoarding. Local and international talent comes together to offer vibrant wares that allow shoppers to match presents to the tastes of family and friends. The show's shopping districts make perusing easy, from the Flavour District's gourmet lollipops to the Visual Artists District's abstract weavings to the Green District's low-emission cattle prods. Complimentary childcare for children ages 2–8 and a free parcel check are ideal for keeping arms free of sleepy children and rambunctious handbags.
- What sets this event apart is its organizers’ reliable radar for quality, coolness, and especially, one-of-a-kind artisanship. The other selling point is the sale’s manageable layout: sections from One of a Kind Green (sustainable products) to the One of a Kind Fashion District make it easy to navigate, despite its carefully chosen inventory of 150 artists from across B.C., Canada, and the U.S. – Janet Smith, Straight
