Twice a year, Canadian artisans of all persuasions (mostly from Ontario and Quebec) come together at the Direct Energy Centre to present their wares to shoppers in search of everything handcrafted and—you guessed it—one of a kind. If you’re hoping to knock out some serious holiday shopping at this year’s show, arrive with a balance-free credit card or a wallet full of cash, because these trinkets don’t come cheap. The show runs until December 4 (10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays), and to help you navigate your way through the sprawling convention space (and away from a lot of the patchwork and tchotchkes), we’ve put together our top 10 booths to check out at this season’s One of a Kind Show. Find out who made the cut after the jump.
