Did We Mention You Get a Free Tote Bag?
At every Unique Markets popup we want to make sure our customers are happy, so we give everyone a limited-edition tote bag to carry home all the amazing products they buy at the show.
Make Something in The DIY Den
With multiple free DIY projects to try, UNIQUE LA is just as much about inspiring creativity as it is about shopping! Try your hand at making beauty and apothecary products, marbling coasters, customizing your (free) tote bag and gift tags with printmaking, and more. We've even got a DIY area just for kids!
Photo Ops Galore w/ Our Art Installations
We're excited to feature some of Los Angeles's brightest artists throughout the show. We'll have numerous augmented reality photo booths, and we're partnering with street artists, muralists, and 3-D textile artists to create photo opportunities around every corner.
