Maybe now people won’t question Devoya Mayo and her ideas.
Five years later, with the help of her Soulflower Group cohorts and crafty local ladies like Alexa Westerfield, the bazaar became the most-attended event at Fulton 55. It brought more than 800 people through the doors on Saturday afternoon to shop for handmade goods made by local folks.
You can read more about it on The Swell Life, which is Westerfield’s blog.
We just figured this warranted a little follow-up to celebrate the can-do attitude and craftiness of Fresnans. I think it’s worth re-posting this quote from Mayo that I used at the end of my Friday column: “If you want to have something different, think about it and make it happen.”
