one of a kind show is back

OOAK artistThursday, December 7th begins the 22nd One of the Kind Holiday Show. It'll be our third show with them, this year we're in booth 8044. We decided to upgrade to a corner booth this year to make it easier for shoppers. Our first year we had a typical in-line booth and it was tight quarters.

our first one of a kind booth

We were so busy, people formed a line to shuffle through the booth and shop. Last year, two weeks before the show, we were being upgraded to a double, corner booth. Our booth neighbor unexpectedly had to drop out of the show and instead of having an empty space, we were asked to expand our space. I scrambled to get more shelving in time and created extra fixtures to make it all work. It was apparent the corner booth was the way to go! People could easily shop without feeling trapped in our space. Unlike the previous year when people would mill about outside our booth until they could fit. Some shoppers would tell us "I'll be back when it's not so busy." I know we lost sales.

I hope you'll join us this year! Again, we're in booth 8044. There isn't another show like One of a Kind Holiday Show. You can shop 500 creators all under one roof. It's amazing! Last year, I got almost my entire holiday shopping list done in one afternoon there. Tickets are $15 and on sale now, we've got complimentary tickets in the shop, stop by and grab 'em. Each pass is good for two guests all four days.
