…a few weekends ago and, as expected, it was a pretty sweet event; much bigger than the previous one.

Kathy and I bought a bunch of great stuff including:

delicious pistachio butter crunch candy from P.O.P. Candy

– skull-decorated pot holders and a zombie oven mitt from Collisionware

– a plush robot cutie (with a giving heart) from Kauzbots

I could get into what an awesome event Unique is, but I’ll let the work of the above artists speak for the event itself.

Looking forward to the next one,


PS: We didn’t purchase anything from Three Apparel but they’re worth checking out, too.

A few months ago I wrote a quick little post about a cool event here in L.A. called Unique Los Angeles.

Well, they’re having it again this weekend! If you’re in town, be sure to head on out. I’ll be there… with bells on… some part of my body.

For those of you who don’t know, Unique Los Angeles is a quarterly independent design and gift sale where local artists meet and sell their wares. It’s an amazing event with some extremely talented kids, and it’s a cheap day: only $5! And half of that gets donated to local charities!

So head on out, check out some art, support local talent and charities, and have something to talk about on Monday. What’s everyone else in your office going to be talking about? “Oh, I went and did crack in a bathroom stall at some shitty club Saturday night!” or “I watched forty episodes of ‘The Simpsons’ on Sunday.”

Yippee. Go out and do something instead! Do Unique!

We went to Unique Los Angeles this weekend which, for those of you from Milwaukee, is basically L.A.’s version of Art vs. Craft.

I’m too tired to write anything witty about the experience (other than it took place on the 13th floor of a high-rise building in downtown, which totally sucks for people who are terrified of heights), but I wanted to quickly share with you a few artists I came across.
