During the recent Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham, one of the event planners commented, “A city is only as good as its creative force.” As I think about tomorrow night’s artwalk here in Fairhope, I couldn’t agree more. One of the things I love so much about living in Fairhope, is its’ creative force.
Keeping small businesses busy and supporting local families, is a passion for 007 and I. We love the town of Fairhope and whenever possible we will stop in to a family-owned business long before we stop at a big box store. That is what these “First Friday” posts are all about. Supporting local merchants. The top story this month begins at a local art gallery.
Would you like to know what’s new in the shops of Fairhope prior to First Friday Artwalk? You’ve come to the right place. Beginning in July, I will share a post that has a list of brand new items or events to enjoy during First Friday Artwalk and the following month. While sipping wine and nibbling goodies made by shop owners, you just might find the perfect pair of shoes or a dress for a summer wedding.
