Anti-establishment shopping

It’s that time of year again. One way or another we all end up shopping for ourselves or for others. There’s no denying it. So why not spend your feria in your local communities and support local. Buy some great home made jewelry that is ONE OF A KIND, art, clothes and even light switches. I gave one to Aldesmadre last year 🙂 There’s IMIX in Eagle Rock, which Chimatli wrote about and Nahui Ohlin in Echo Park tambien, but there’s also a few sales that are popping up. So buy local and support artist who do their thing and if you see something nice, don’t think twice about getting it because chances are you’ll never see it again. A mistake I won’t make again. And remember, if you know of something going on, put it up on the comments. Happy HoliDAZE !!

  1. You know you are right…think globally and act locally.

    Pero i really would like a Kindle…:( i don’t think the local swapmeet or art fair carries any.

    I think im gonna head over to the Mercadito this week and check out what they have…i haven’t been in over 2 years.

    Se me antojan los churros y unos huevos con confetti 🙂

    P.S.- love that 1st pic of all the brands altered names jajaja…i love the french fries from Marijuana!

  2. Scuse me while I spam. If you like gothic clothes, check out this low-key local online store. It was more local to the eastside when it was there, but, it’s still there spiritually. The sewing machine was bought at Sears on Olympic. Everything is custom made, so it must be ordered ahead of time. http://nocturnalnostalgia.com

  3. Before I do my Christmas shopping at the 0.99cent store, is it an anti-establishment store?
