Black Friday represents everything we don’t: mass consumption, corporate interests, blind impulse shopping, and takes away the value that quality and good design offer. We hope you’ll skip buying things today and come shop @uniquemarkets next wknd, Dec 2 & 3, because the money you spend goes DIRECTLY BACK INTO YOUR COMMUNITY. The 400(!) designers, artists, brands you can shop from pay taxes, on a city, state and national level - which means money spent with them helps go to paying for parks and libraries and fire departments and even fixes our roads and freeways! And as they grow, they hire and employ people from the community. And also, you are making people’s dreams come true! Quite literally. And that feels waaaay better than standing in giant lines or clicking to confirm your order.
When you purchase things made for the masses in other countries, your money goes to supporting their growth, government, military, unethical labor practices, etc - think about that. 😙 So skip the crowds and parking lot road rage and join us at the 10th Annual #uniqueLA Holiday Market next wknd for amazing finds, conscious consumerism and to support the idea that artists do not need to be starving - design and creativity CAN change the world!
