Michelle Mishina Kunz's photographs of the Unique USA LA Market

Featuring a curated group of 125 independent designers and artists selling everything from clothing and jewelry to home décor, furniture, stationery, and leather goods, you might think of The Unique L.A. Fall Market as the cool girl (and guy’s) answer to back-to-school shopping. While you won’t necessarily find the sort of bargain prices offered by big-brand chains, you will find one-of-a-kind, American-made goods you can’t find everywhere else—like covetable leather camera straps by Small Batch Supply Co. and delicate, stackable rings by Pueblo.

Whether you’re looking to get a head start on your holiday shopping or just need a little retail therapy to soothe the end-of-summer blues, this fun pop-up market has you covered. Each ticket includes unlimited re-entry all weekend, free drinks and snacks, DIY watercolor projects, photo booth portraits with Oh Snap Studios, and more. Saturday and Sunday, Sep. 10 & 11 at The California Market Center. Tickets are $12 online and $15 at the door.
