More upscale than your usual craft fair, Unique’s goal is to bring made-in-America design, fashion and art to the masses. Here you’ll find crafts that are a little pricier: soy wax candles by Pommes Frites Candle Co., whimsical designs by Fleet Collection and cutesy stationery by Le Trango. Events are held in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles multiple times a year in each location, and feature more than 350 hand-selected designers and artists. Tickets will run you $10 a pop, but the first 5,000 buyers will get a free tote bag designed by a local artist; free drinks and snacks from JOIA, Honest Tea, KIND Bars and LUNA; and photo booth pictures. To top it all off, 10% of the funds will go to the literary non-profit 826LA.
