unique LA

this was definitely the place to be on this beautiful saturday.  unique LA is a great event held at the California Market on the corner of 9th and main in downtown LA. it is the largest independent design show in the country where attendees get the chance to meet and shop directly from over 300 designers and artists.  it is all about buying local, supporting LA's economy and supporting amazing artists and designers.  there were a few free workshops that popped up throughout the day.  there was free water from function water and honest tea was there with free bottles of tea (yummers!)  there were some local gourmet foods such as platine bakery (the best cookies i've ever had, ever....will probably have to be a future post solely on this bakery) and burlesque bakery (cute and amazingly delicious mini cupcakes with cutesy names like brigitte bardot, temptest storm, and bettie page---i tried this one which is chocolate cake, marshmallow fluff filling, bourbon buttercream, garnished with potato chips.)

anywho.  my friend tina and i went this expo today and it was the best way to spend our day for sure.  the set up on the top floor of the california market center was the perfect place.  our $10 entry got us this awesome bag from keith scharwath as well as the aforementioned free drinks and all sorts of other free loot from various booths.  also, i am now officially going to join etsy.com and add the majority of the designers that i saw today to my favorites list, and shop away!  i did come home with a few items, which i will blog about throughout the week.
