We know things may have been a bit…um…slow for some of our de LaB friends in the last few months. But we’ve also heard some pretty amazing stories about you all using that extra time to take on new and exciting endeavors. In fact, so many of you have contacted us about the cool things you’re making that we knew we had to find a way to help share them—and sell them. In April, we’re holding a very special event during the Downtown Art Walk where de LaB members will have a chance to showcase their freshly-made wares. All the rest of us have to do is show up and support them!MAKE TIME: Shop Your Local de LaB Community Products for sale by architects, designers, illustrators and artists working east of La Brea.
