Southern Makers

Attention fellow Alabamians! 😀

I wanted to let you know about an event coming up at the Union Station train shed in Montgomery on May 3rd. It’s called Southern Makers, and it’s one-day festival that brings together artists, chefs, farmers, brewers, architects and designers to explore “Bama-centric” inventiveness, through panels, workshops, and cooking demos.

The folks at Southern Accents (Cullman, AL) are decking out the whole place with lots of gorgeous salvaged materials again this year, which is sure to make the whole atmosphere feel even more fun. Here are a few pics of how they embellished a few different areas last year:

PS- Speaking of “local stuff”, Kevin’s brother’s house is on the market:

    That looks like an amazing event! It’s a little far from me here in California but I have a bunch of family in Alabama so I’ll pass the word on to them. Thanks! xo Jonni xo
