Holiday Gift Guide: Unique LA, Renegade Craft Fair, Artisanal Pop- Up Shop

Yo, can't find the right gift or want to spend that Hanukkah money on something nice.
Well, the weekend of Dec 11 and 12th LA's filled with that weekend only deals.

Unique LA

I call it the Felt Club Killer or Etsy come to life. Unique LA is a indepent design and gift show with many products by local artist and purveyors of different goods. They have almost everything you could want this holiday season. Over 300 different shops to try.  There seems to a great selection of clothing and maybe treats. I'm sure you could get lost for hours in this place looking at all the different stuff.

Wow, this is going to get competitive our a artist could I guess buy space at all three events. Wait a second,

Wait a minute, Deal Time people, it looks like if you show your wristband you get a doolar off of entry for Artisinal LA, and in return in you show you Artisinal LA band you get 2 for 1 price for Unique LA. BTW did I mention there right next to each other

 Anyway Artisanl Pop-up Shop is a smaller Unique LA. Benefit is it costs less for admission. You have somewehere above 30 local artists making this place jingle with foodie delight

Admission $6.00
Renegade Craft Fair Los Angeles

The Renegade Crafrt Fair is back, earlier than expected for the holidays. This is another big event to get a rare t-shirt or handmade special something. Prices aren't that high. Looks like old interviewe Kevin Tong's back in town for this. So you could get his stuff and not pay shipping charges.

The benefit to the other two is thats it free to attend. Parking is a gamble here. Other than Kevin's booth I wasn't that impressed with the stuff at the last one. Maybe they've learned from thier mistakes and picked up their game. Anyway it's still might be fun to see what's around. Tehy have a huge open area to look around and amny different vendors and artist to look at.
