Markets for Makers & Unique Markets

In person pop-ups make up most of our schedule. There are two that we particularly love and always try to go back to. We've participated at the Markets for Makers in Miami and LA. With Unique Markets, we were able to take part in their LA and DC locations. Let's take a look back and get to know the events better: 

About Markets for Makers

Their markets are distinctive in that they curate a vibrant and eclectic array of skilled handmade makers, charming boutiques, rare vintage treasures, and truly one-of-a-kind items that you can’t find within conventional retail settings. Attendees can enjoy these hundreds of Makers while also enjoying food, drinks, DIY experiences and photo walls that create memorable experiences. Their markets have lasting impacts on local neighborhoods and communities that we are a part of by naturally revitalizing local economies.


About Unique Markets

In 2008, long before Instagram and #girlboss even existed and during the worst U.S. economic crisis in generations, Sonja Rasula had an idea to start something BIG in Los Angeles to help small, unknown brands and artists. She risked her entire retirement savings to rent a venue and launch Unique LA (the original name of the event), a new, innovative form of retail that allowed founders to sell directly to the public, IRL. With 225 sellers (more than found at big trade shows) and numerous interactive installations and activities, it instantly became the largest indoor, curated shopping event in the country. The markets then expanded to cities all around the country (hence the name change), and have so far injected over $35 million into local economies!



Both Unique Markets and Markets for Makers are the ultimate playground for all things fun and funky. Think trendy boutiques, funky finds, and enough DIY experiences to make your creative juices flow!

A pop-up like this was about creating memories and making connections. We chatted, we laughed, we shared stories – and in the process, we made some new friends too! Because at Andeana Hats, it's not just about fashion – it's about building a community of like-minded folks who believe in making the world a better place, one hat at a time.

So whether you're strutting your stuff at the beach or sipping cocktails by the pool, our hats are here to add a splash of style to your adventures. Check out our collection, and join the party – because life's too short to wear bad hats! Grab your hat, strike a pose, and let's make some memories together. Because when it comes to hats, the sky's the limit – and we're ready to take you there! Check out our Markets page to learn about our upcoming pop-ups!
