Remember that “can’t-miss” L.A. indie market we were swooning over last month? Well, it happened, and it was everything.

But just incase you did miss it, not to worry, because the Echo Park Craft Fair will be returning to Mack Sennett Studios this December. Here are a few reasons why you should mark it on your calendar…

Because we will always say ‘yes’ to fresh florals.

Because you can never have too many candles…and custom-blended candles, at that.
