As much as I love to get my fix of mass production that is Forever 21 and H&M, I equally love exploring and discovering small local designers who have one of kind, meaningful pieces. However I'll be honest and say that I don't always have the time or the patience to go exploring for local artisans, who does? And even if I do accidentally stumble across a local designer or boutique that I fall in love with, it may not be convenient for me to make an 'across the city trip' every week or so to scope out the new goods.
Enter Unique Indie, my recent discovery. Now I'm sharing my newfound love with you not because I am paid or sponsored to do so but because I honestly love the product and concept and I think you will too! I love sharing a good find with my readers.
Unique Indie is an online marketplace featuring emerging accessories designers around San Francisco. In addition to envy-inducing jewelry and luxurious leather handbags, Unique Indie provides the background to each product by showcasing the designer's story. My favorite part about buying from local, smaller boutiques or designers is that most of the items are created with an interesting tale behind it. There's meaning, love, and detail to each and every piece. If you see something you like, you can purchase directly from the designer through Unique Indie.
Now that I've crossed paths with Unique Indie, I no longer need to soul search for local SF designers. If you're looking for special pieces or just want to see what SF style is all about, head over to Unique Indie - I can literally spend hours on the site watching videos and browsing products, it's a force field over there.
(Plus the girl behind Unique Indie, Janet, is pretty awesome too. She literally knows all the designers, stories, and pieces inside and out. She's down to earth and willing to share with whoever has a willingness to know! Gotta love and support a passionate, knowledgable founder!)
