What is One Of A Kind?

One Of A Kind is a platform for sales, exposure, business development and community-building for makers of all kinds. With our year-round digital platforms, and anchored by our two flagship events, we help creative small businesses chart their own path to success! One Of A Kind allows artists and makers to represent themselves and showcase their work to a loyal audience who appreciates the importance of supporting local and shopping small.

We put on two in-person events each year at the Enercare Centre in Toronto:

  • The Winter Event takes place over 11 days each November – December. (Core Theme: holiday gift giving including an exclusive Original Art Gallery section)
  • The Spring Show sees artisans gather for 5 days early each March - April. (Core Themes: self growth and self care)

Nancy Martini Art

I'm Nancy Martini and I'm a fine artist. My work is bright, and colourful and full of texture. And none of that shows well online no matter how good the photo is. The One of a Kind Show was the venue that got my art in to people's homes. I did a happy dance (literally) every time someone decided they wanted to purchase. My neighboring booth exhibitors all created a little family with me, and we still connect with one another now. I can see myself exhibiting for the next 20 years at OOAK.
