The One of a Kind Show 2009

The One of a Kind Show is happening now through Sunday at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. The show is absolutely huge, but these were some of the things that caught my eye…

Etsy was there with an entire section devoted to Etsy artists.

ReadyMade was there too. You can pick up the latest issue and get a free one-year subscription.

    I usually go to the one in Toronto but I just didn’t have time this year! :(

    I wonder if the one up here had Etsy at it? That would have been really interesting!

    hiya! great post – i love the OOAK and went to the Toronto show this weekend. question, though – how do you get all of those great shots? at our show, they don’t let anyone come in with cameras so i generally have to resort to picking up business cards and using images from the artists websites.
