If you ditched the mall madness and big box stores on Black Friday and opted to shop at cool kid haunts instead, may we suggest something for your Small Business Saturday itinerary? This Saturday, head to San Pedro (it's not as far as it sounds!) to shop the handmade wares of indie designers and partake in festive DIY activities at Crafted's holiday shopping event.
It's all happening from 11am to 8pm at the permanent marketplace's 25,000-square-foot digs at the Port of LA's warehouse No. 10, where shoppers can pick up clothing, jewelry, accessories, stationery, home goods, furniture, artisanal foods and much more merch from over 100 local talents. On the entertainment front, there'll be live ballet and musical performances while shoppers enjoy food truck grub from Fishlips and Son of a Bun. And on top of all that, the event boasts free admission and parking, plus free gifts to the first 200 guests.
