LA's Salt Swimwear gets 'Lucky'

Congrats to the fabulous Salt Swimwear line, all made in LA, who were featured in Lucky as an Editor's Pick!

Do we love their colorful prints? YES. How about their use of great details like gold buttons and ruffles? Yep. And what about the (very) revealing bikini bottoms? Borat said it best: "Sexy-time!"

Meet the Salt Swimwear team at the Spring Show, April 24/25, and buy at discounted prices (gasp)!!! They'll be in booth 265.

A Tote to Covet

Drum roll please....... The 2nd Annual Spring Show's tote bag will feature an exclusive design by (omg) Keith Scharwath! Keith is so successful and super-talented it makes me jealous. What do I mean by successful and super-talented? Um, how's this? Work for Nike, Sony, Beautiful Losers (Aaron Rose, Shepard Fairey, etc.)...

Everyone who attends the show gets the tote bag free with their $10 entry fee, which is what helps us run the show/rent the space/pay for advertising - all things that put money right back into the LA economy. Hooray!!!

Amoeba joins UNIQUE LA!

Attention indie rockers, metal heads, vinyl vampires, record collectors, Amoebaphiles... It's official, Amoeba will be creating a two-day Pop Up location downtown as part of the UNIQUE LA Spring Show!
Yep, this means that UNIQUE LA fans can browse and take part in workshops for hours upon end while their cranky lovers/friends/room mates/kids can enjoy thumbing through vinyl and hanging out. After all, there's only so long some people can look at jewelry and organic lotions before freaking out... Though of course UNIQUE LA also offers free drinks and a hosted bar. ;)

Like Johnny and June, this is truly a perfect pairing!
