Los Angeles, CA (CNS) – Shopping fans are going to love the holiday shopping extravaganza at Unique Los Angeles, an exciting two-day shopping event that will showcase 165 independent, local designers and artists. The holiday shopping event will take place December 13-14 at the California Market Center Penthouse in L.A.
Celebrity News Service is excited to learn about the “alternative to the mall” that brings together the best American designers, artists and merchants. Shoppers will find great deals from popular designers that they know and love, while discovering emerging talent and unknown gems.
The majority of vendors are from California, though a handful are joining the event all the way from Brooklyn, Portland and Seattle. Vendors include ROJAS, Unhee, Black Hearts Brigade, Johnny Cupcakes, Rock Scissors Paper stationery goods, Illume Candles, jewelry by Steven Shein, and sweet treats by Cake Monkey.
there truly is something for everyone! On top of shopping the wide variety of offerings, the event boasts interactive fun for the whole family. Participants can create cards, gift tags and crafts for free in Etsy’s DIY Lab. Screenprint shop Fresh Pressed will also be at the event, allowing shoppers to customize their very own t-shirts. There will be a cafe and the L.A. Weekly Lounge will offer a relaxing place to sit down, enjoy a cold beer and read a magazine.
Unique Los Angeles will feature four special sections to help “on the go” shoppers Eco Chic (green products), Rockin’ Babies & Cool Kids, and Gallery Row and Rising Stars featuring great art ranging from students to emerging artists.
Founder Sonja Rasula designed the event to foster and support the creative community while stimulating the local economy, and to offer shoppers a diverse selection of great gifts created and produced by local talent. “Why would anyone buy something factory-made at the mall, when they can find great deals and one of a kind gifts from emerging talent and top designers? Unique Los Angeles is a one-stop shop for shoppers who will be able to find something for everyone on their lists, all while saving time and gas!” said Rasula.
