Forget this week's corporate bonanza shopping blitz known as "Black Friday." Show your support for local artists and crafters by shopping at Unique Los Angeles, an occasional showcase of local talent that you'll want to buy for the loved ones on your holiday gift lists. The 2nd Annual Unique Los Angeles Holiday show is the largest independent design show on the West Coast, where you can shop from over 300 designers and artists.It's taking place over 2 days, December 5th and 6th, and a portion of your $10 admission will go to the local non-profit 826LA. Your tickets gets you an exclusive-to-the-show limited edition tote bag, a free drink ticket, unlimited re-entry for both days, and access to their free on-site workshops.

Earlier this year LAist talked to Sonja Rasula, Unique's founder, who explained how an event like this really brings together people from all over the city and truly exemplifies the meaning of community. By shopping from the hundreds of vendors who will proudly have the best of their clothing, plush toes, stationery, prints, jewelry, accessories, and more on hand, you can truly be a part of our local economy. Not to mention score some truly unique gifts!

The 2nd Annual UNIQUE LA Holiday Show
December 5 & 6, 11am - 6pm both days @ California Market Center (110 East 9th Street)
