It was my first time to join 98B’s Future x Saturday Market last month. I am inspired by this group’s advocacy. Through fairs, film showings, artist residencies, art exhibits, and other art events, they aim to revive the beauty of Escolta and educate people, especially younger generations, on how it once was and what it can still continue to become now.
I shared a booth with my friends, Isa and Jamie, and sold washi tapes, twines, DIY journal kits, art prints, paintings, and postcards, and met a lot of fellow handmade supporters.
There was also an art installation during the fair:
Thank you so much to those who dropped by Escolta just to buy washi from us :)
PS We will be joining the 10a Alabama Fair this coming Sunday, July 21.
