Unique Markets


Curated, modern pop-up markets with goods from hundreds of the hottest independent designers.

Unique LA was a HUGE game changer for me... We were discovered by Forever 21 who went on to carry select pieces from the line as well as stylists for major TV shows that bought for their whole cast and still continue to do so.

"What I love about participating in UniqueLA is that the events are organized, advertised, and executed really well. Because of that, the positive energy that you get from the meeting of carefully curated local businesses and thousands of interested consumers is difficult to find elsewhere. It's my favorite show, and I always look forward to meeting other vendors and selling my products in such a supportive, joyful, and truly unique environment!" - Sharon, Baluku Design

"From the very first time I ever participated in a Unique show, I knew I was becoming part of a special community of designers and makers. There is a great energy in the weeks leading up to the events and then when everyone is there together setting up, putting on display the labors of their love it's just really cool. Sonja has created a great platform for talented people to showcase their stuff!" - Robert, RS Handmade

"We are constantly amazed by the inventive and gorgeous environment that the Unique staff is able to create for the vendors and customers alike, which we feel really adds to the experience for everyone involved! But our absolute most favorite thing about selling at Unique over the years is that we now have some customers that are our "Unique regulars" and they'll seek us out at each show to catch up with us and scope out our new designs or buy their favorite cards!"Alice and Doris, ilootpaperie

"Unique was a great opportunity to help me grow my business through pure genuine interaction with the variety of attendees. From buyers to small business supporters, there is an awesome chance to get your stuff out to the universe and see what happens." - Avenue Dee

"Through Unique I have made friends that taught me skills, shared leads and sources, offered support, and inspired me to continue working. I have met buyers, boutique owners, and a customer base that care to buy local and support small businesses. It's an inclusive community spearheaded by Sonja and the Unique team. And it's through their work and dedication that the Markets stay fresh and significant."Jeannine, Honey My Heart 

"First visiting Unique Markets as a customer several years ago gave me the confidence to step out of my comfort zone and apply to display my handmade jewelry. I am thankful for the opportunity to interact with my customers first-hand and see what they love, plus get feedback for future designs and shows - this interaction has proven very beneficial for my growth as a business! I have also had the pleasure of meeting many other artists that I may not have connected with otherwise and have made many friendships and business connections through participating in Unique shows."  - Drew, Carden and Aster

"Unique LA was the first big market I did when starting my line and it was a HUGE game changer for me. I was exposed to so many people in such a short amount of time... It helped me create that personal connection within my community as well as get recognition on a bigger scale. Buyers from boutiques and large companies walk Unique all the time. We were discovered by Forever 21 who went on to carry select pieces from the line as well as stylists for major TV shows that bought for their whole cast and still continue to do so." - Katie, Katie Dean Jewelry
