Supporting designers, artists, creativity & community since 2008!

Female-founded and based in sunny downtown Los Angeles, we make shopping fun, creative and inspirational! Unique Markets are fresh, modern, pop-up retail experiences that feature the best independent designers, artists and emerging brands. Then we add DJs and a bunch of free activities and perks like refreshing drinks, interactive photo fun and DIY projects, so shoppers can be creative too!

When you shop with us you get to discover and meet the people who design and make the goods directly! Hear their story, touch/try-on/see the products before you buy, find out about their process, ask questions and get inspired by all that you see. You’ll find everything from home decor and art, to clothing and jewelry, apothecary products and baby gifts to letterpress stationary, and everything in between.

Aside from our big community-driven markets, we also create smaller experiences throughout the year. We host creative workshops, organize free educational classes for small business owners, have a bi-monthly speaker series for women in LA called Working Girls, and are known to throw killer dance parties. #shopsmall #bigfun
