On the first weekend in May, The Rare Ones Crew had the opportunity to attend the largest made-in-america shopping event, Unique LA.

With over 350 designers and artists shoppers were able to discover an assortment of products including handcrafted jewelry and accessorizes, decedent cookies and cakes, fragrant candles and oils, as well as fun t-shirts, tanks and hoodies.

One of favorite parts of the shopping event was tasting all of the delicious foods for sale. Our friends at Joia were kind enough to provide every shopper with a free soda. That's right FREE!!! Joia, from the Boundary Waters Brands, is an all natural soda blended together with a combination of fruits, herbs and spices. Each flavor is made from scratch with all made with natural ingredients; nothing artificial.
