Looking for unique, hand-made gifts for your friends and family this holiday season? Then make some time this weekend to visit Unique LA, an independent design show created by Angeleno, community leader and designer Sonja Rasula that will feature the work of 325 hand-selected designers and artists.
Products offered for sale during the fourth anniversary event of this shopping adventure fall into a variety of categories, including:
Clothing & Accessories • Stationery • Jewelry • Housewares • Artwork • Ceramics
Gourmet Edibles • Bags & Purses • Plush Toys • Books • Photography • Screenprints • and more!
If you’re into crafts yourself or just in a creative mood, you’ll be able to roll up your sleeves and participate in one or more workshops that will take place during the show. You can create your own Zine, sew a vintage inspired flower and make a bow out of old magazines.
Unique LA will also feature two café areas serving lunch, coffee and sweets. So make a morning, afternoon or a day out of this annual event and come see first hand what members of our community are creating and support the local economy in the process.
