KOREATOWN—For the next in the string of curated, creative events taking place at Poketo at The Line Hotel (3515 Wilshire Boulevard), the cool gift shop welcomes San Francisco's Farmgirl Flowers (who also just opened a studio in our city!) for a Holiday Wreath and Flower Crown Workshop. The $150 class takes place this Saturday from 2-5pm and includes all the supplies for attendees to create both a wreath and crown using fresh, domestically-sourced, seasonal florals and foliage. Deck your door and your 'do with your custom made masterpiece after this festive, crafty event. Sign up by heading here.
BEVERLY GROVE—PJ's and a pup sounds like our ideal way to spend a Saturday —a fact Kitson (115 S Robertson Boulevard) must have telepathically known when they dreamed up this weekend's event. P.J. Salvage, maker of adorable sleepwear sets, teams up with the shop for a pet-friendly afternoon of shopping (with discounts!), giveaways, and treats—for both you and your four-legged friend. The pajama party takes place from 1-5pm on Saturday.
ECHO PARK—Online shop Queen for Dinner is bringing their edited selection of merchandise from some of the coolest up-and-coming makers to Echo Park (1830 Echo Park Avenue) for an IRL pop-up Saturday night. The roster of badass vendors includes local, mystic-hippy-friendly jewelry brand Androgyny Design (learn more about the brand in the feature we recently posted here), vintage-inspired clothing company Hanna Hayes Designs, and contemporary goods designers Local + Lejos—and that's just the few from a long list. The 5-9pm event is also treating shoppers to cocktails and live music, so you can turn your holiday gift browsing into a full-on party.
