It's One of a Kind Show Time

Posted by Jennifer on Dec 6, 2014

I live for the One of a Kind Show. For four days, I get a break from traditional retail as I wander through booths showcasing over 600 talented artists work. Each year I treat myself to one special something for myself. Last year, it was a pair of rose earrings and the year before a beautiful black and white print which is now framed and hanging in my living room. I also take care of a TON of holiday shopping! This year I have at least four people on my list I know will love something unique, and as one of a kind as they are!

Did I mention The Chopping Block has a booth there as well? Basically, we set up shop and feature not only our fun holiday tea towels and accessories but our favorite one of a kind ingredients as well. You can find us in the Gourmet Aisle sampling out our house-made Holiday Cocoa Mix which our chefs make and package just for you! There’s a ‘To and From’ label on the front so it makes a perfect stocking stuffer. Pair this with our chocolate chip or peppermint stuffin' marshmallows and you have the perfect gift.

We will also be sampling our Jalapeno Gold Candied Jalapenos. Now I’m not really a spicy food person, but these candied jalapenos are the perfect balance of sweet heat. I have served them on a crostini with cream cheese. I also put them in my Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread every time I make it. The possibilities are endless with these bad boys.

Stop by our store on the first floor of the Mart for more samples, great gift ideas and tons of fun. We'll be hosting a Chocolate & Wine reception tonight from 4pm-6pm, so join us on your way up to the show or as you leave. Sweets and vino? Sounds like the perfect shopping combo to me!
