One Of A Kind Show Buys

Happy Monday!  Over the weekend I hit the One Of A Kind Show, and thoroughly enjoyed it {as usual}. I thought I would share my three favorite Artisans, and what I purchased from each of them...

I got this gorgeous fold-over clutch bag from Scout & Catalogue, and I cannot wait until Spring to use I use it {I don't think it's a very wintery piece, but I love it so I had to get it now}!  It is from their "Scavenger Collection" which means it is made using fabrics found in thrift stores, and upcycled into these bags.  I love the eco factor, as well as the fact that they are a limited edition.
 
This darling little "Berries Bucket" I'm now using to hold my knitting stuff is from Jenna Rose, and it's probably my favourite purchase!  Jenna draws the patterns, then does all of the dying, screen printing, and sewing for each piece by hand - A truly creative and talented gal.  It's just so special to purchase a piece you know was made with so much heart.

Last, but not least, I picked up this sweet little zippered bag from Lovell and I'll be using it as my new makeup bag when I travel.  The patterns from Lovell are bright and fun, so it was hard to choose, but I'm pretty darn happy with the pink chevron - Cute, right?

Every year I am drawn to bags, textiles, and paper products - I just can't get enough.  I also love going just to soak up the creative energy that surrounds the show.  It's amazing seeing so many talented Artisans under one roof!

Did you make it to the show, and if so, what did you buy?

  5. Hey Staci - love your purchases from OOAK. I see you are a Fresh fan too. I know you go to Vegas often and just wanted to mention - in case you didn't know - that you can get a punch card at either the Palazzo or CP location each time you spend $100. After you get 5 punches you get 50% off. A few times a year they have triple punch day so you get 3 punches for every $100 you spend!

    Love your blog!
