10a Alabama Arts & Crafts Fair

Yesterday i found myself in an old house somewhere in Quezon City meeting local artists and appreciating art. Now i will be the first to tell you that I am not a fan of art galleries and museums. What i am a fan of is shopping. So this arts and crafts fair was a just perfect for me.
The place is a basically a bazaar for all kinds of artists. Check out the ceiling drop lights in the following pictures made from old electric fans.
For most of the booths, the creators themselves are the ones selling the items. It's fun to interview these artists and find out what inspired them to start their crafts. Some are also doing the actual craft on the spot. It's a good way to inspire or revive the inner artist in you.

Here are some of the items that caught my eye during my visit.
Aside from the novelty items, they also sell some interesting food stuff. Drink the perfect blend of local Cordillera coffee matched with Sesame Wasabe macarons. Then cap off your hot afternoon with the wild Muscovado + Bacon ice cream. A trip to 10a Alabama can be such a foodie adventure.
Here are more resurrected items. See if you can identify the former lives of the following items.
Interesting, isn't it? Watch out for the next Arts & Crafts fair by following their facebook page http://www.facebook.com/10aAlabama I was told they they hold these fairs for two days every quarter. So based on the current timeline, maybe we can expect the next fair sometime in October. Just in time for your pre-Christmas shopping.

Finally, i leave you with this very important thought.
