The One of a Kind Show and Sale was in Chicago this past weekend for the 11th annual Holiday shopping event with thousands of gifts from all over the country. The show provided a wide array of handmade gift items from 600+ artists, including paintings, purses, ornaments, and just about everything you can think of.
