went back to the 10a alabama fair last november… was finally able to take a pixxor of the gate without the swarm of parents, kids, and their uniform clad yayas. huzzah!

i started my treasure hunt with gawanifemi, she sells succulents in pots with faces! i bought four pots of spindly cactus. i hope she’ll have some echeveria succulents and lots of asian faces on my next visit.

there were lots of things inside the house that caught my eye, like pretty stationery and magnets, although i had to refrain myself from buying more paper related stuff because i already have two boxes of unused stationery. i did ogle some of the resurrected furniture, there’s an ozummm drawer for card catalogs and framed letters.

around the house were the usual knickknacks… purses, pins, more stationery, and stuffed toys.

it took me two loops to locate their resident cat though. found him snoozing beside the stall that sells leather bound notebooks, he must have liked how those smelled. also, per my google search, his name’s supposed to be chaplin… so adorable. hope i could visit him again soon.

yun lang.

was finally able to go to a 10a alabama fair, huzzah! fairs and bazaars like these are waaaay better than going to the malls, people are friendlier and more helpful. also, i found so many treasures!

aside from all the nice artsy stuff being sold, 10a alabama is also filled with art, there were lots of installations around. there were paintings, prints, and doodles on the walls. plus, the furniture are artworks too.

but the best thing about 10a alabama is that they have a resident cat, that’s him snoozing on a chair, so adorbs, hihi. for this little guy, i will definitely come back to the next fair.

yun lang.
