This year was my first visit to the One of Kind show at the Merchandise Mart (a building so huge, it has its own zip code!) This ‘craft fair’ was a whole different entity than my beloved Renegade fair (though I did see some repeat merchants from the prior weekend.) This show had a more luxurious scene & catered to a more upscale (purchasing) target market. I liked that it was curated into sections: fashion & jewelry together, food vendors with samples galore (yum!) in the corner, and even fine artists – sculptors, painters, etc. in a group. I spent most of my visit with my guy’s mom, who was a great guide around the extensive floor plan. I’m definitely looking forward to next year’s show!
