Keep your cool while shopping inside a historic former airplane hangar as the Unique L.A. Summer Market returns to the Barker Hanger on Aug. 19 and 20.
The annual event, designed as a pop-up to promote independent local artisans, will include handmade handbags, home goods, clothing and jewelry, gourmet edibles and more. New vendors this summer include Casa & Co pillows, Hunted Fox ottomans, marbled mugs by Jodi Siegal Ceramics, nursery decor by Maple and Cotton and "sun pillows" by Sunshine Dreaming.
Also new is a Mobile Mini-Market featuring food trucks and boutiques-on-wheels such as Beautiful Things LA. and Blossom Vintage. Adding to the always-fun event will be DJs, free photo booth portraits and snacks and a DIY craft station for kids (and adults). And for those of you who melted at the Rose Bowl Flea Market last weekend, did we mention it's indoors?
