I like items that are cute and items that make my inner (and not so inner) fat kid happy. This mini ice cream press is cute and makes my inner fat kid happy! They’re really easy to use and produce really adorable, delicious, and professional looking ice cream sandwiches.
…And I’m back! My apologies for my absence, I have been buried with work. I’m so happy to be back, though, and to present to you this awesome Gummy Bear Lamp. This squeezable lamp comes in three classic gummy bear colors, would look great on your desk, but as a warning probably doesn’t taste that great…unlike the gummy bear below…
Valentine’s Day is next week (damn, how did that happen?) so it’s time to get scrambling on those gifts! How about this sweet Honey Bear Vase for your sweetheart, honey bear, insert petname here. It looks like it could fit one or two flowers, but that’s really all you need. The cuteness of the vase speaks for itself.
Hey, Los Angeles! Check out the LA Craft Experience this weekend (January 28-29th) at Chinatown’s Central Plaza! There will be tons of awesome vendors, including two of my favorites: Unicorn Crafts and Le Petit Elefant! This is a great opportunity to find some cool gifts for Valentine’s Day, either for your significant other or yourself.
LA Craft Experience is LA’s premiere outdoor market located in historic Chinatown’s Central Plaza and features unique vendors from all over Los Angeles. The show includes designers, crafters and artists selling unique, handmade, original or hard-to-find items. Shoppers will be able to meet and shop from vendors selling screen prints, art, apparel, jewelry, home accessories and décor, children’s gifts and accessories, letterpress stationery, pottery, handmade books and much more. There are no recurring dates for the LA Craft Experience markets and they normally occur alongside other events in Chinatown.
The next LA Craft Experience event is Jan. 28th & 29th, 2012 for the 2012 Chinese New Year Festival. The event runs from 12-8 p.m. on Jan. 28th and 12-6 p.m. on Jan. 29th. Applications for this market is now open; however space is extremely limited.
Support local businesses and skip the mall! LA Craft Experience brings together all that is unique and wonderful about Los Angeles to you!
