This handmade shopping experience will feature 120-plus local curated makers. We had a chance to preview this unique holiday experience.
Here's What We Loved About San Diego Made Factory!
When was the last time you had fun shopping and met interesting people?
We got to meet the artisans that created these beautiful, unique gifts in their micro shops. We met an artist named Val that creates art out of felt, and paints animal portraits. She was creating while her shop was open for business.
We also met a young man @Imgoinghollywood that puts positive messages on unisex apparel.
We had food and drinks as we shopped and mingled. It was a fun night, and if you're tired of Amazon and shopping malls this might be your ticket. Especially if you are looking for that one of a kind gift!
