I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for finding incredibly unique items, whether it's clothing or knick knacks. Bonus points are necessary when those things are locally made. But who doesn't love knowing exactly who made their products and where they come from? If you're one of those people, then you're going to want to head to Unique LA's Spring market on May 13 and 14.
The Unique LA Spring Market that showcases a number of local vendors selling their art, designs, clothes, beauty products, and much more. Think of it as a huge "buy local" event. You'll find everything you could possibly want here, whether it's clothes, makeup, accessories, or purses — you name it, you'll find it. What's even better is that because these businesses are independently owned and operated, you'll likely find something you won't find anywhere else.
If you're planning on heading down to Downtown Los Angeles for this fun event for some shopping, or if you're like me and want to be creatively inspired, tickets are available online now for general admission at $15 or a VIP ticket, which gets you a goodie bag of things from vendors at $35.
Of course, an event like this can be overwhelming for anyone, so I've rounded up some of the brands to look out for.
You're bound to find some colorful tights and graphic prints at this shop.
