If—unlike Dov Charney—you still care about the Made-in-America movement, then this is the festival for you. Next month, purveyors of fake proms, epic sales and cool pop-ups Unique LA will take over DTLA's California Market Center to produce their annual LA Summer Market. This year's event will host more than 350 vendors showcasing USA-designed goods.
In addition to offering "the largest Made-in-America shopping event in the country," as the site claims (see the roster here), the two-day event (going down August 9 and 10 from 11am to 6pm) will feature drinks, snacks, DIY crafting, photo booth fun and more. Tickets are $10 and available at the door.
