Seems like every hipster within a 30 mile radius was at Unique LA's shopping event this weekend at the California Market Center in downtown Los Angeles. These were friendly, craft-loving hipsters for the most part. In case you missed it, here are some photos of stuff that was available. There was a lot of it. A lot. People were shopping like it was the end of the world.
