If you have never attended this show, than I highly recommend you visit this weekend before it ends on April 1st.  Where else can you find unique home decor items, fashion and jewellery all made by Canadian Artisans.

Below are some Displays & Special Features you should check out while you are there!

One of a Kind Umbrella Competition

April showers bring May flowers! We have invited all of our Spring Show exhibitors to create a piece inspired by the theme “Umbrella” to welcome Spring! From the shape of a raindrop to the freshness of the season, show off your creative edge and use your own medium to design an exciting creation based on your interpretation of this theme. Be sure to visit this display in centre aisle,  and cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award!

One of my favourite artisans is at the show.  You may remember Lia Fagan from Mod Pieces….she created that fabulous chevron vintage lamp that I used for my second Cityline show appearance last September.

And last, but not least, I fell in love with Tat Chao’s glass candle holders – made from repurposed wine glasses!

What do you think of this light fixture he created – it’s quite phallic looking and quite the conversation starter! It’s so original….I luv it!
