Unique USA LA Holiday Market | California Market Center

This year marks the 7th annual Unique USA LA Holiday Market and it’s back and better than ever. It was at the Unique LA holiday market last year that I discovered quite a number of small businesses that have now become some of my favorite local brands to shop. It’s also worth noting that I was able to get just about all of my holiday shopping done in one convenient place; from jewelry, clothes, homemade goodies, leather goods, art, candles and so on, prepare to get lost in a fabulous world of local creativity. Tickets for both days will only cost you $10 total, soooo… why wouldn’t you go?  (more info and advance tickets here!)
