I just found out about Unique LA and I’m definitely going to check it out! It sounds like such a great idea: bring together LA-based designers and entrepreneurs and let the public discover what they’ve created. We all get to play Shark Tank and vote for the success of these start- ups and up-and-coming businesses with our own investments…one purchase at a time. Unique LA happens May 3rd & 4th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at California Market Center 110 E. 9th Street in downtown Los Angeles. Admission is $10 at the door. From the pictures, it looks like there could be a line in the morning so I think I’ll walk over there a little early. If you’re driving you’ll find plenty of parking lots in the area but you can also park underground in the California Market Center for $6 during the show. This event sounds like one more great way to discover and support the risk-takers that are creating a new economy in and for our city. And if you can’t get there, watch for my Friday Frivolity posts as I’m sure the show is going to give me plenty of great products to write about!
