LA LIFE: Candles, Christmas Decor, Holiday Markets, Hanukkah Festival
Tomatoes, if you are still trying to ignite your Christmas spirit then a visit to Aldik home will do just that because it is a mind blowing oasis of Christmas decor. And while there you might want to hop over to the DL Company Warehouse sale to visit their amazing collection of aromatic handmade candles with unbeatable prices. This weekend there are many unique shopping opportunities. The Renegade Craft Fair and the Hunt and Gather Holiday Shopping are at the forefront of my mind. The Hanukkah Festival at the Skirball Center is a very special way for everyone to celebrate our light, our courage, our resilience and of course this special season. Enjoy tomatoes.
