Imagine Etsy in person: artsy tees, bullet necklaces, pungent artisanal spices, handmade harmonicas, furniture crafted from exotic woods. The offerings at the city's newest alternative shopping experience, Odd Market at Casa Vertigo, are as unique as anything you can find online and kick any shopping mall's ass. No fewer than 88 of L.A.'s most creative crafters, including Two Hermanas, Povertees, Detroit Trash, stones glass + bones and Crown Bloom Company, will be selling jewelry, fashions, food and decor at this new weekly market. While you're perusing scads of one-of-a-kind goods, you also can feast your eyes on the historic building that houses it all: a former Odd Fellows Temple built in 1924, which retains much of its original art deco, Beaux Arts and Spanish Colonial influences. Sustenance can be found at gourmet food trucks including Luckdish, Currywurst, the Griddler and Roadhouse Rotisserie, and live music by local bands plays throughout the day. Odd Market at Casa Vertigo, Casa Vertigo, 1828 Oak St., Pico-Union; Sun., Sept. 21, noon-7 p.m.; $5, free parking.
