Hey Kessy at the 10a Alabama Fair in April

I always look forward to joining 10a Alabama Fair. It's the first ever arts and crafts fair we joined back in 2011 when Hey Kessy was just starting. The Alabamers here are like family and so it's like a reunion of some sort every time.

Another good thing about this community of makers and crafters is that everyone encourages everyone. Even the folks who visit know the value of that things which is handmade and take time to chat with the sellers :)

The first 10a Fair of the year was held last April 13 and 14. As expected, I had a great time catching up with my fellow art and craft sellers and meeting other Handmade Movement supporters.
