My visit to the Toronto Interior Design Show continues...The show is divided into sections. The one area I most wanted to visit based on my pre-show research was:
The designboom mart is widely recognized as the first-ever design bazaar. The Toronto designboom mart was an unprecedented opportunity to meet young avant-garde, emerging designers from around the world. Thirty local and international design talents displayed over 200 objects, from household items, jewellery and accessories to small furniture items and lighting objects. Visitors had the chance to purchase unique items for an affordable price, directly from the designers themselves. designboom mart Toronto took place on the IDS show floor.
Let's RECYCLE/UPCYCLE! This designer created beautiful bow tie combination necklace/pins from old ties.

Here's a TIP:If you are attending a show on the last day there is a good chance they have run out of bags. You will most likely gather info, business cards, and/or make purchases. Trust me: stick a cloth bag in your purse or pocket because you will need it. You will thank me later.
