Neighborhood Spotlight: Your Shopping Guide to the “One of a Kind Spring Show” in West Loop

  |     |   Lifestyle

Perfect for Mother’s Day, graduation, wedding season and more, the 4th annual One of a Kind Spring Show takes to The Mart this month.

Located at 222 W. Merchandise Mart Plaza, gifts at the 2019 show range from ceramic kitchenware and recycled paper home decorations, to hand-crafted artwork and jewelry unlike any other, created by more than 300 independent artists from across the country and beyond.

For every upcoming occasion this year, the show will offer an enormous variety of personal and unique presents that are as special as the person who will receive them.

“We are excited to bring back our Spring Show to kick off the warm weather shopping season,”  said Aida Sarvan, director of marketing at The Mart. “From graduation and birthdays, to weddings, holidays and more, we are happy that the show and our artists are able to be a special part of our shoppers’ lives.”

The show opens Friday, April 26 and runs through the weekend, offering shoppers a wide range of unique and eclectic offerings for everyone. From the party host to the newlywed, their official Gift Guide is the best place to start before you shop.

“As each item is handmade by talented artisans, one piece at a time, the creativity of our talented exhibiting artists lends itself to there being something unique for every individual,” Sarvan said.

Here are some of the highlights you’ll find in the guide:
