As grocery markets, department stores and pretty much any retail establishment outside our front doors have kindly reminded us,
winter gift-giving season is coming. (Halloween, what?) If you're stoked about Westwood's artsy pop-up village next month, Echo Park's newest indie craft market, LA Salt, might be a good prezzie shopping spot to add to your November hit list.
Taking place Sunday, November 3rd from 12pm to 5pm at Pehrspace, the Eastside marketplace will offer tons of vintage and handmade apparel, home goods, stationery, fine art, furniture, artisanal food and more. Standouts include eco chic clothing by Chop Siouxy, boho cool accessories from Earthling Jewelry, vegan skincare by House of Aquarius, and tons of other crafty goods from top local talents—all priced at around $50 or less. In addition, the fine folks at Umami Burger will be on hand to refuel shoppers mid-spree.
