Seek treatment at more than 2,000 individual shopping opportunities
It’s a fact that L.A. County Fairguests consider shopping an event in itself. Many are determined to visit every shopping location throughout the Fair – and there are more than 2,000 of them – so as not to miss a retail therapy opportunity. There will be plenty of new products to consider this year, many earth-friendly and some so affordable they will be too good to pass up.
For some, Fair shopping means finding the latest food chopper gadget. For others, it’s the giant roll of chamois cloths that clean virtually anything, streak-free. You might also turn a corner and find the best deal going on designer sunglasses or some unusual hand-crafted Native American art pieces.
This year, among the shopping treasures you’ll find are Sockpopits Snap On Flip Flops, cute little interchangeable ornaments that fit on your sandals, socks or hair barrettes. (Hint: they’re a great Christmas stocking stuffer). For the sports enthusiast, ASA Products has a Tri-ton ultimate three wheeled cruiser, light-up skateboards and more. Colorful vintage wraps from Kariza Designs are so versatile each can be worn in several different ways.
