It was hopping today at the Direct Energy Centre! I always forget how early you should go and think that everyone is like me and enjoys a leisurely breakfast. But no! Skip the bacon and eggs, grab a latte at Starbucks on your way out and get a good parking spot. It is so worth it this year!
The main show entrance was wide open, airy and welcoming, with a display which featured their theme – “What’s Your Style” How perfect is that? It’s as if the show organizers were reading my mind since my post last week was about establishing your decor style. See EYE SPY… Your Style.
My friend Marietta joined me this year and although she had a budget, she found it easy to break! The very first booth we saw is where she broke it!
Catherine and Jinny from Noujica, make gorgeous silkscreened scarve thingies (so clever) and gorgeous belts and buckles. Marietta had to get one.
Then we came across Amy from Rock My Soul. These pillows and wall art are colourful, fun and funky. I love them!
Does anyone remember the store FLUF? Well if you’ve been wondering where they went to, like I was, I found them! They do wholesale now and are in retail stores all across Canada. Nathalie was at the show with some of their screen printed pillows,napkins and lunchbags! Great gifts!
Clever, clever, clever …recycling old wine barrels. Who would’ve guessed you could make such beautiful home decor items from old barrels. Cathy from Wine Planks, showed us her stuff!
There is tons more new and unique decor and gift items. And only 2 more days to go, so get down there if you can.
