600 Artists (And Your Entire Holiday Shopping List) Under One Roof

The One Of A Kind Show is not for the casual shopper who's content to spend a day at (gasp) the mall. Instead, it is a total takeover of the Merchandise Mart that, from now through Sunday, boasts over 600 artists selling their wares to holiday shoppers. Better still, the market offers the whole holiday shopping package — literally. Chat up the artists who made the gorgeous gifts you're buying, then hustle over to the market's gift wrapping station to take care of that pesky scotch tape song-and-dance you hate. With this many artists selling pretty much an endless supply of handmade goodies, you're leaving happy — trust. Check out the video below for more proof, if you're slow to believe. But move fast: You've got exactly four days to get shopping!
