The Ontario Cactus & Succulent Society Show

June 27, 2010

The Ontario Cactus and Succulent Society Show was held on June 26 and 27 at Sherway Gardens in Etobicoke.

I was thoroughly impressed, in fact, amazed, with both the show and the Mall.

I remember Sherway Gardens when I was a kid. They had built the Mall on the property that used to be Sheridan Nurseries. I don't remember it being remarkable at all.

But today it's extremely Posh! I was just passing through to see the Cactus Show, but I realize, the next time I will give myself extra time to enjoy the shops.

I'm not sure what the fees were for the tables. Usually, for businesses there are separate charges for the tables, tablecloths and table skirts, and that wouldn't include the space rental. Small clubs could rarely afford such luxuries. This set up looked far more professional than many I would see at a typical convention.

As for the Cactus show, it was “Small, but Mighty.” The quality of the plants was excellent. There were experts on hand to answer questions. There were sales tables with a large selection. I don't think you could ask for more.

Congratulations to both The Ontario Cactus and Succulent Society and Sherway Gardens.

(The Ontario Cactus and Succulent Society doesn't appear to have a website or contact information. I will add it as it becomes available.)
