The One of a Kind Show Chicago Review - Chicago’s Ultimate Holiday Shopping Destination

The One of a Kind Show Chicago, taking place right now (December 3-6) at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, is Chicago’s ultimate holiday shopping destination. It is a show that lives up to the promise of giving shoppers a chance to find something for everyone on their gift-list – and intriguing items for themselves, too. More than 600 talented artists, artisans, and crafts-people from across North America have brought imaginative, handmade creations to this year's show. There are thousands of unique gift options. This fabulous shopping experience offers a wide variety of price points for gifts, crafts, and art ranging from refrigerator magnets to handmade wooden spoons to gorgeous jewelry, fur-lined coats, and original paintings.

The One of a Kind Show Chicago has become one of the city’s most highly anticipated holiday shopping events by combining an endless array of hand-crafted, specialty gift items as well as great entertainment options to enjoy throughout the day. The One of a Kind Show Chicago aims to take away the stresses of gift-giving by providing shoppers a fun, energizing destination where gift-seekers can discover an abundance of thoughtful and truly one-of-a-kind exclusive items.

The show also features a popular Etsy Pavilion, where attendees can shop the work of several Etsy artists who primarily sell their work online. The Etsy Pavilion's Craft Station invites shoppers to create handmade pom-poms for gifts or home decoration.

Shoppers will wander thousands of square feet on the entire 7th floor of The Mart and find gifts for the host or hostess, foodie friends, home décor, accessories and clothing for children and adults, and much, much more. Shoppers can speak with artists one-on-one, attend artist demonstrations, and create something themselves at a crafting workshop. The Gourmet Gallery has a broad selection of food items including baked goods, dips, sauces, confections and savory foods, and shoppers can take advantage of the delicious samples.

The One of a Kind Show Chicago also makes shopping easier by offering a coat check as well as Foodstuffs cafes (including bar service) and tables and chairs scattered in many places, perfect for the hungry shopper or a quick rest. Another very nice amenity is an on-site service which will pack and ship purchases.

The One of a Kind Show Chicago takes place December 3 and 4 from 11 a.m. – 8 p.m., December 5 from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., and December 6 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at The Mart, 222 Merchandise Mart Plaza, 7th Floor, Chicago, IL.
