Los Angeles Holiday Craft Fairs 2018

Hey Everyone!  Happy December. 

With the holidays very quickly creeping upon us, I just wanted to remind everyone to shop small businesses if you can this holiday season. Us small entrepreneurs really appreciate your support. To help make it a little bit easier, I’ve compiled a (very) short list of craft fairs happening in December in the Los Angeles area. And CaLoveCo will be present at a few 😉. If you’re not in the Los Angeles area, check out Eventbrite to see if there any fairs happening near you. It’s a great resource to find stuff to do in your local area. The best thing about craft fairs, though? I mean, besides all the awesome handmade crafts that make the perfect gifts, or course. Admission is usually free. So, grab the kids and take the dog and make a day of it. Plus, with that downpour of rain we just had in LA, it’s beautiful outside and not sweltering hot…finally. Get outside if the weather permits. And visit a craft fair. And shop small businesses.
