HANDMADE gifts for any occasion! I think these sort of gifts make for such a wonderful surprise not only are they originals, but made with tlc. they are neat , crafty, and just beautiful. "Crafted" at the Port of Los Angeles is an amazing HUGE show of amazing artists, you have artisans, craftsmen, artists, embroidery, design, fashion, jewelry, custom furniture, clothing, leather... "the list goes on and on" I was in heaven, I absolutely love heading out to places like these I spent a good time talking to the talented vendors, networking and getting inspired!. My kids loved the experience too, and of course wanted every second item they saw...lol
I didn't take enough photos to justify the array of goods there. they have a live band kicking it who were just great!, the atmosphere is friendly warm and laid back. bring your children they will love it.
If you are looking for different gifts,or something to add to your decor that says YOU.... cleverly put together, reclaimed and repurposed.....you will find it here.
