Do you hear that? It's the sound of jingle bells taunting you to get started on your holiday shopping. Sure, Thanksgiving just ended and both you and your wallet are still recovering from the Black Friday frenzy, but it's time to buckle down. If you, too, are stressing over gift ideas this season, consider stopping by Unique LA this weekend.
Coined as the largest independent design show in the country, Unique LA's 5th annual holiday show will take place at the California Market Center in DTLA this Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 6pm. The show promises mounds of Made-in-America products from over 350 indie vendors, so make a day of it. The $10 entry fee will get you a tote bag designed by Brian Rea, gratis cocktails and other refreshments, DIY workshops, photo booth portraits and more. This year will also feature a curated cafe filled with bites from some of LA's top restos and food trucks.
Check out the show's lookbook here and purchase pre-sale tickets here. 10% of all ticket sales go to the downtown Los Angeles non-profit organization Inner-City Arts.
