Canadian National Exhibition (CNE)

For 17 days from August 21 to September 7 I had a booth at Canada's largest fair, the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) also known as "The Ex".  My booth was in the Arts, Crafts and Hobbies building and over 1.5 million people came to the CNE this year!!!  I sold over 400 pairs of Love Sandals over the 17 days and it was really amazing to meet some of my customers and see a lot of my friends who stopped by to help me.  Special thanks to Jenn Lanteign, Jax & Van, my Mom and Dad and everyone else who helped me make this happen.  THANK YOU!!!

“The Love Sandal was an idea in the summer of 2013 when I was enrolled in the Girls Learning Code Inventors Camp in downtown Toronto. I noticed my Mom had ugly tan lines on the top of her and thought it would be great if we could somehow make the tan line look cool and then I thought, what if the tan line was a heart, and the Love Sandal was born. The Love Sandal represents not only a cool shoe that allows girls and women to have a nice heart shaped tan line, but they are also super comfortable sandals that are fashionable, well made and affordable. Our sandals are about being fun, youthful, elegant and beautiful.” Abi Smithson, CEO
