DELIVERING ONE OF A KIND EXPERIENCES SINCE 1975

As the flagship event supporting craft and its makers, One Of A Kind is the largest consumer event of its kind. Since our first show in 1975, we are proud to provide a platform where artisans can connect and sell direct to consumers. 

One Of A Kind is so much more than a shopping event. We are a year-round community of like-minded individuals coming together to champion creativity and to give craft the commanding attention it deserves.

A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH

With a name like One Of A Kind, our approach to sponsorship is also custom-made. We will work with your brand to ensure we build out online and offline opportunities to support your marketing goals and objectives. 

OUR PURPOSE & VALUES

Everything we do is rooted in our purpose: to champion creativity through craft. With every partnership, we are looking to strengthen the following values which guide what we do at One Of A Kind.

  • We are an open and inclusive community made up of artisans, enthusiasts, and the craft curious
  • We provide access to the makers, so they can showcase their inspirations, stories, and creations
  • Craft is our history and our future. We have witnessed its growth, and we will continue to be a platform for its evolution
  • Craft is culture, and objects have meanings. We strive to always celebrate the human capacity, courage, and spirit to create
