One of a Kind

Yesterday we went to Toronto to the One of a Kind fair, an artisan show where you can buy unique handmade products from all over Canada with artisans coming from far and wide. It is the third time we have gone to this fair and it did not disappoint! There was a fantastically diverse collection ranging from exquisite jewellery to edgy fashion, delicious salmon from British Columbia to butter tarts from just around the corner, wooden toys and huge wooden tables, just waiting to be put in a cottage for families and friends to gather around and feast, beautiful bedware, colourful handmade shoes, handcrafted soaps with beautiful aromas, paintings, prints, witty cards and so much more. So much to sample too, chocolate coated berries, crispy soy beans in many flavours, salmon pate on crunchy biscuits, melt in your mouth butter tarts, eye-watering balsamic vinegars, creamy goats cheese, rich terrines and duck pates, jams and spreads, pickles of more vegetables than I knew it was possible to pickle, we tasted and tried almost everything! We were tempted to buy so much but given that we are hardly cooking we restrained ourselves and did some other shopping instead, mostly birthday presents but the occasional indulgence for ourselves, Simon bought a great t-shirt perfect for Arrowsmith which he wore today. I will take a photo tonight for tomorrow!
And this is the link to the blog this time last year (and I hope this works!) – what a lot has happened since then and at the same time, seemingly not very much at all!https://fionaandsimonincanada.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/Today’s-news
