Art Pop-Up at UVLA

What are you doing today? Check out the Local Loca Art Pop-Up Bazaar at UVLA, Cubao X!

UVLA (short for Unique Vintage and Lost Art) is one of my favorite haunts for hoarding vintage toys and trinkets. But what makes this nostalgic shop extra special, is that it also features art and handcrafted pieces by indie artists.

Nostalgia alley!

 

Every so often, UVLA’s “Local Loca” artist community holds wonderful pop-up bazaars and workshops where the artists and enthusiasts alike can converge, mingle, showcase their art, and shop away, of course!

Don’t miss UVLA’s first art bazaar for the year, happening today, March 7 from 3-9 PM. Entitled “Alsa Balutan,” it’s all about “local travels, urban wanders, nomadic lifestyle, astral travels, space travels or even just the art of packing.” Find illustrations, stickers, art tees, statement totes, travel bags, Polaroid starter kits, vinyl records, baked goods, and so much more! The artist/vendor line-up includes: Cloned Boogie, Diklap, Makaluma, Denver Garza x Forever Ugly, Kwan, Speculiars, Polarities, Jes Baker, No. 24, Vinyl Dump, Vachuca, Sound Thrift, and Exonoma.
