As you might have noticed from our ongoing Holiday Gift Guides, we've already gotten deep into gift-giving mode. So by the time last weekend's Echo Park Craft Fair rolled around, we fully deserved to pick up a few chic items for ourselves.
Some of our favorite LA makers filled the beautifully curated space at Silver Lake's Mack Sennett Studios. The family friendly event offered culinary treats from the likes of Bub & Grandma's, Soo_n Food, and Solstice Canyon and even provided mamas a sweet spot to park strollers and feed/change the babes. But to be honest, our happy place here is always shopping the wares, and this season's fair had all-star newcomers like Heidi Merrick, Marais, and Mondo Mondo. With such a line-up, can you really blame us for spoiling ourselves with sustainable undies and seasonally-scented spritzes in addition to the gifts we grabbed for others? We didn't think so.
