One Of A Kind Spring show of 2012 was my first go-away show, I am glad I took part in it.
I was preparing for several weeks, thinking through my very mobile display and making new stuff, also shipping things ahead of time, so they get there and wait for me to pick them up and cart them to the venue.
Once in Toronto, I had taken more cab-rides in just that week, than in the past 10 years altogether! Must admit I am still very fond of the roomy Eastern town cars, where I can stretch my legs fully inside and rest the back on my head on the edge of the seat. That simply does not exist in most Vancouver cabs...
So, here is the booth - purses hanging from a marine line, attached to the top pipe by several bike hooks, shaped like a question mark; my streamers, made from recycled men's button down shirts, and my 42" table:
Although, during biz trips there is hardly time for sightseeing, we managed to do some - which was a great intro to some of TO's neighbourhoods. After living in Vancouver for many years, Toronto appeared more of a traditional city, active, faster paced and vibrant. I very much enjoy that kind of environment and have always been missing it since my arrival to BC.
|We took a trip to Distillery district|
|And Queens street|
|Then I had night strolls of my own...|
|and city halls...|
But every morning we made our way to the show floor for another day of sales...

Traveling never ceases to open up and grow my world.
