Once a month, about a dozen local craftsmen set up shop next to a spot where locals get their Fix… Coffee, that is. On the last Sunday of each month, from 2 to 7 p.m., FIX Coffee Co. opens its outdoor space to DIY vendors who sell unique, handmade goods at the aptly named Local Artisans Bazaar. Freelance designer Veronica Hunt manages the monthly event, selling her own clothes and accessories under the label Screaming Chica. The relaxed, dog- and kid-friendly environment offers handmade jewelry, tie-dyed pillows, vintage aprons and shoulder bags that double as monsters. There’s also live music, with past versions of the LAB spotlighting chalk artists and face-painters as added attractions. And it’s free to browse. 2100 Echo Park Ave., Echo Park. labazaar.blogspot.com. —Tanja M. Laden
