10 Reasons to Visit the New Hey Kessy at Alabang Town Center

Come and see this cool independent craft shop's second location!

(SPOT.ph) South-based crafters, handmade aficionados, and washi tape enthusiasts need not trek to the north to replenish their art supplies or discover new makers because the Hey Kessy shop has finally opened its second branch at Alabang Town Center!

 


 

Bright and airy, the shop’s walls are predominantly white and bare—reminiscent of a blank canvas that’s just waiting to be transformed into something wonderful. Wooden shelves are filled with art tools for all kinds of interests as well as bespoke pieces by Filipino makers. We looked around and listed down reasons why you should visit Hey Kessy at Alabang Town Center.

 


 


 

It's washi tape haven

Raise your hand if you’re a washi-tape hoarder! New original Hey Kessy washi tape designs feature collaborations with comic storyteller Manix Abrera, whimsical visual creative Reese Lansangan, and Danjugan Island artists.  

 


 

You'll be inspired to try something new

Stop and stare at this wall before taking what you need. Aside from the usual materials for hand lettering, watercolor painting, and paper cutting, Hey Kessy also helps you get into new activities such as glass etching, stamping, and personalizing fabrics using heat or rhinestones.

 


 


 


 

They have all your painting needs

Hey Kessy offers paint for every medium imaginable (paper, textile, leather) and even helps you create chalkboard and glow-in-the-dark pieces! Also, how beautiful are these carved brushes?

 


 


 


 

You can shop dainty accessories

Jewelry lovers can choose from customized creations by Dandy Ona, minimalist accessories from Pulseras by Kim, and hand-embroidered pieces by Thursday Craft Love.

 


 

They have cool finds like this camera made from paper

You’ll never believe what these card-sized wonders are: they're digital cameras made of eco-friendly stone paper from Paper Shoot Philippines!

 


 

You can buy pretty patches and stitch them onto your clothes right away

Patch collectors will go crazy over the cute and punny options from Patch Me Up, Fine Time Studios, and Pundesal. The best part is that you can use the sewing machine on the Let’s Be Makers table to instantly stitch the purchased patches onto your bag or clothes!

 


 

They've got some party essentials, too

Amp up your celebrations with cake toppers, wrapping paper, felt cloth, postcards, and greeting cards from artists such as Type and Treats, Megan Diño, and Inspiredby.ph.
