It's no secret that we live in a city with a wealth of talented artists and makers, and the holidays are the perfect time to celebrate and support their creative efforts. The Los Angeles Makers, a local collective of artisans and designers that has organized a few so-called "rogue pop-up markets" (they've previously sold goods at Croft Alley and Cisco Home) will be offering their variety of handmade wares at UCLA's Fowler Museum (308 Charles E Young Drive North) this Sunday—just in time to pick up a few pressies for those left on your list.
The seasonally-themed version of the LA Makers market will include contemporary womenswear by Jill Aiko Yee (who will be bringing brand new dip-dyed linen tea towels and napkin sets in addition to her best-selling silk dresses and flattering cropped tees) and Echo + Air, stained glass hangings and homegoods from Debbie Bean, hand-woven tapestries from Rummage & Hollow, holistic bodycare by KALI alkemi, soy candles and goat's milk soap from Fiddle Fish, and jewelry from artAsan and Nina Savill among other goodies. Additionally, Gasolina Cafe will be on-hand to provide organic, Spanish-inspired bites to keep shoppers satiated.
The 1-5pm pop-up promises to provide gift options for everyone from that one dude in your life (may we suggest a bicycle pouch from O&M leather?) to your snobby sister (the Pinterest-favorite shibori pillows from Juniper & Fir ought to do the trick)—plus perhaps a little something for yourself.
