The 2nd annual Unique LA shopping event is happening this Saturday and Sunday, December 5-6. Over 300 independent vendors will be there selling some really great stuff (clothing, jewelry, home accessories, art, plush toys, etc.). Go here for the Unique LA blog. If you were ever going to shun the malls and buy local and handmade, this recession year is the year to do it.

There will also be an Eco Room selling green products (environmentally conscious, silly, not the color). Plus, Stefan Bucher the Daily Monster guy will be on hand to teach people how to make monsters. See you there!
