IDSwest :: Interior Design Show 2012

After spending the past 4 days chatting about interior design and meeting new creative friends, we rewarded ourselves with a Madonna concert and then sleeping in until 10am! With the closing of One of a Kind in Vancouver, IDSwest created the One of a Kind District as part of the Interior Design Show this year. Featuring 50 designers ranging from clothing to jewelry to chocolates and everything in between, The District was a handmade shopping experience that was a natural fit to the existing show. You can check out the SHAW TV feature here and find me talking about Roxypop and the District by fast forwarding to 1:35 – eep!

giveaway :: IDSwest 2012!

Scraps of fabric and thread strewn all over the craft room and eating takeaway at 8:00pm only signifies one thing… craft fair season! I have been busy prepping to participate at the first One of a Kind District at IDSwest building an entire custom set up including a table and signage that I am super excited to reveal at the event!

Showcasing 60 handmade artists, the new area will be a highlight at the Interior Design Show West in addition to Future Masters vol. 3 in partnership with ArtsyDartsy, and a full line up that you can check out on their website here.

Interested in attending? I have 3 pairs of general admission tickets (valued at $15 each) and 2 pairs of exclusive tickets to the opening night (valued at $20 each) up for grabs! To enter, leave a comment below and winners will be randomly chosen on Wednesday, September 26th, 2012 at noon (PST).
