One of a Kind Spring Show & Sale - Tickets Giveaway!

I know, eventhough Spring had arrived, it doesn't really feel like it out there. But maybe this will help. The One of a Kind Spring Show & Sale (OOAKS) will be happening next week from March 27-31 at the Direct Energy Centre, Exhibition Place in Toronto.

Come and meet over 450 artisans, shop local and take home some very cool one of a kind handmade stuff! And for the very first time, Etsy had partnered with OOAKS and will showcase over 30 new and  emerging Etsy artisans in its own Etsy section. How cool is that?! The show would be such a great opportunity for them! For those who's not familliar with Etsy - they're an online marketplace where you can buy handmade or vintage items. I will definitely stop by and support my etsy community.

BTW, not sure if you guys know - I am pretty crafty myself and I do have my own creations: Hello! stuff. It's fun, cool graphic t-shirts & accessories. Go check out my etsy shop or even better, support and make a purchase! : )

Alright, it's giveaway time! The nice people from OOAKS have given me 10 pairs of tickets to give out = 10 winners! There TWO easy ways to enter, and 3 possible entries into the draw.

1. Facebook: Simply click "like" on the OOAKS tickets giveaway post at David Chiu Stuff. A bonus entry if you share it on your wall. While you're there, why not leave a comment too as to why you would like to attend the show: )

2. Leave a comment on the blog post below telling my why you would like to attend the show.

Rules: Open to readers in the GTA only. 10 readers will be randomly chosen, each will get a pair of tickets to attend the OOAKS. Giveaway ends Tuesday, March 26 at 6pm EST. Check back on my David Chiu Stuff Facebook page that evening to see if you're one of the winner. Good luck and happy shopping!
