Last Sunday my friend had invited me to join her to visit Unique LA in the California Mart in Downtown LA.
I had heard about it and walked close to it (but never going in) and for some reason I never had the urge to go see it.
Well! To my surprise, when I arrived around 1:30pm there was a LOOONG line in the lobby area for people buying tickets to go in! ($10 admission fee)
That got me a little excited to see what was waiting for us on the 13th?14th floor?!
Once the elevator doors opened it was like in front of Shibuya Station, people! Lots of PEOPLE going left and right, shopping, chatting, having tea! Eating ! There was even a “DIY Table” where they gave you things to clip and glue to make your own little artwork.
We were amazed to see so many people and sooo many booths! All local vendors selling their tee shirts, soaps, jewelry, candles, interior items.Just about anything.
One of my favs, was “RELIGHT” They have vintage mug cups, planters, ceramic cuties and even pepsi cans that they find, clean and fill with wax so that we can take home a candle.
Really loved the idea.Makes everything feel extra special because you know there are not that many Squirrel Nut case planters out there! ((Great for gifting!!))
They have a website, please take a peek!
The Erika Walton “Alter Ego” Line was fun packed too!
So many cute pieces with such a great price.
I was eyeballing the Batman necklaces and the bracelets with the vintage buttons on them:)
Maybe will get it at the next Unique LA show.
My one and only purchase for the day was at “HIPS AND HAIR”
I bought the misfits x mickey cloak top.
Love it!! Wore it out today and got so many compliments:)
The tee is easy, 100% organic cotton, hand printed in LA and the print is off the hook!
What more can I say!!
