This is a great place to find one of a kind handmade gifts. I have browsed in here for over an hour. You will find everything from clothes to jewelry to house hold items. Many are beautiful works of art.

I love browsing to see what new artists have contributed to this store. I went there recently & knocked out some Christmas shopping with unique gifts that I would not find at Macy's, etc. It's like traveling across country & finding new creations without boarding an airplane. I am a creator myself with crochet & beading but I always find something unique when I go there.

I absolutely love this store and all the artists that are in it. I take so many people here just to walk around and feel the love that is in every little gallery they have. I have bought gifts for numerous people from this shop. I feel so inspired everytime I walk in there. I wish there were more like it (since I have moved an hour south). I think everyone and anyone will find something here!

I shop at Handmade Galleries not only to find the coolest gifts, but to enjoy shopping in a REAL store staffed by GREAT people who treat everyone who enters like a friend. This is not Snooty Central as so many other LA stores have become. Handmade Galleries remains real and connected in spirit to the community, to artists, and to cutting edge trends.

I wouldn't compare it to so much to a flea market or emphasize its size as "warehouse", although it does hold many surprises as flea markets do and covers 5000 square feet in size. It is more an urban arts and crafts fair and a great place to wander around and get lost in.

Dressed down celebs can be spotted strolling the aisles from time to time, knowing that this is the kind of place where they can let down their star guards for a few pleasant hours of fun shopping.

It is also a kid friendly environment, a rarity in many shopping districts (save the mall). So bring the whole family and plan a day of anti-mall, won't-ever-find-it-in-Target actvities!

P.S. make sure you get some of their Handmade Galleries candy when you check out!

I love this store! Whenever I visit Handmade Galleries, I always find something wonderful and unique. There are so many different creative items in all price ranges for all types of people. I look in every nook and cranny and I'm always finding something fabulous. It's hard for me to leave without buying somthing for myself. Truly one of a kind.

Handmade is a fantastic little shop on Ventura Blvd! They feature many different items by private designers. It's a great place to find unique items with tons of personality! Pricing is a little steep, but definitely worth checking out!

The best place for unusual gifts for someone special or for yourself. Incredible collection of jewelry handmade by designers you will find nowhere else. Cases throughout store will have you looking awhile. Aisles of little stalls set up by artists. Candles, Pottery, Knick Knacks, Artwork, Clothes galore. I have bought a few things by this artist who signs her art as VAN. Distressed wood with found objects made into Hearts, Crosses, Boxes, Frames etc. Gift Certificates are available and are wonderful presents for someone who loves arty things. Public Parking in back and a back door. I have haggled an art piece once that was a little more than I wanted to spend and they called the artist and asked if they would lower the price and they did. Friendly staff if made up of the artists themselves who spend a certain amount of time each month selling. They all know each others work and things so if you are looking for something in particular mention it and they will guide you around to stuff.
