unique LA

I've tentatively decided to take a break from house prep this coming weekend to visit my first "Unique LA" event -- what seems like a super-cool ode to handmade right here in my hometown!  

The event was shared with me by fellow Angeleno Jonathan Ventura (recently featured right here!) and is boasting a few of my faves (like Nan Lawson! Or Neena Creates!) so I decided I'd cruise downtown on Saturday OR Sunday to take a peek.  If you're in the area, I recommend you do the same; here is some of the awesome talent you'll discover.

I already mentioned that the lovely Nan Lawson will be selling her wares at the event!

I had a heck of a time selecting an image to add to the blog for The Poster List (though I thought this one most appropriate).  I have a big crush on these guys; I've happened upon them before at the Melrose Trading Post and they seriously rock.  Only click on this link to their site if you're ready to drop some cash (but not too much, because they are totally affordable).

The Poster List will be at Unique LA Feb. 11-12

There are also accessories aplenty to whet your fashionable appetite.  I LOVE Yellow Wallpaper's wallets and Vintage Remade's recycled bags. 

Super-cute wallets from Yellow Wallpaper at Unique LA this weekend.

I've also fallen head-over-heels for Selina Vaughen's amazing bags made from vintage fabrics!

One of many bags you'll discover from local artisans at Unique LA this weekend.

Another favorite of mine, someone I found on Etsy months ago, is Neena Creates (from whom I ordered a SUPER cute, SUPER comfy tank over the summer).  Her Shakespearean, French, and Italian quotes and sayings c'est magnifique, and the designs are simply to die for!

Apparel from Neena Creates at Unique LA this weekend!  Great V-day gift ideas!

My only complaint about Sass&Peril is that they don't make these T-shirts in BIG kid (i.e. adult) sizes!

Check out these and MANY MORE exciting vendors at Unique LA this weekend!  Maybe I'll see you there. 


  1. the package you sent me pretty much RULED! Thank you so much!! xoxo

    1. I'm so glad you like it, Krystal! Yay!! :)

  2. What a great post about how wonderfully easy to is to support local artisans by shopping local at this Unique LA event. I have a couple of Neena Creates tees of varying styles ... and ALL of them are so comfy that I tend to fall asleep in them after wearing them all day ... and if I'm running late with the kids the next YES I DO wear it out again! LOVE those things! ;)
