Event PickIf you’re the type whose blood boils at the sight of Christmas tree displays before we’ve even had Thanksgiving, scroll elsewhere. For the rest of you, let’s keep it real– holiday shopping needs to start sooner than later. Maybe even this weekend. Over 275 curated artists will be at Renegade Los Angeles Craft Fair at LA Historic Park this Saturday-Sunday, so it’s a good time to start, especially if you want to support local and national small businesses and creators. Unique and handmade gifts will be in abundance, including: jewelry, clothing, housewares, beauty products, art, foods, footwear, hats, candles, paper products, sunglasses, soaps, purses, pet stuff, and more. A lot more. Check out the fair’s directory to see the full list of participants. (Hollywood-based Wuitusu is pictured above.) We love how R.C. puts value into diversity and inclusivity as they build a creative community in L.A. and across the country– their website is a great resource for indie brands beyond their events, too. Many of the sellers in their collective have links with their stories and purchasing info so you can find cool stuff even if you miss the event. Leashed pets allowed, and there’s a QR code at the door to pay the $0-12 suggested , 10% of which goes to The Nature Conservancy. Renegade Craft Fair, 1245 N. Spring St., Downtown; Sat.-Sun., 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. renegadecraft.com
