A virtual crafts fair: Recapping our 29 favorite handmade gifts from L.A. artisans

December 11, 2009 | 12:05 pm


The Home section writers have been scouring local stores, flea markets and craft fairs for the last few months to discover this year's best local handmade gifts. We've uncovered elegant $15 pinch pots and surprisingly cool $5 silk-screened fabric scraps suitable for framing. We fell in love with brightly colored songbirds made out of felt and some very offbeat terrariums. We've been rolling these great finds out on the blog for the past couple of weeks, but now we've assembled them in one easy-to-read photo gallery, with where-to-buy information on the bottom of each slide. Click here to enter to the fair.
