Photos: Shopping Local at Unique L.A.

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Quirky, colorful, handmade, and Unique-ly Los Angeles.

That's what you'll find today for day two of Unique L.A., a shopping event which spotlights local and nearby artists, crafters, and other vendors whose work is one-of-a-kind and all in one place this weekend.

"Creating a strong, vibrant and successful community all starts at home. Supporting local design means you're putting money into the local economy which plants a seed -- it grows into helping create a strong, successful city, then state, and then country," Unique L.A. founder Sonja Rasula told us earlier this week.

We're telling you: Head to Unique L.A. today to score some great items for you, or for gifts (Mother's Day, Father's Day, all those spring and summer weddings you're invited to, or get a jump on the big end-of-year-holidays). Housewares, accessories, jewelry, chocolates, soaps...Oh my! No need to be overwhelmed, though; LAist's Lifestyle Editor Julie Wolfson was there yesterday, and scoped out some great finds, which we're sharing with you in photos. [Event info]
