2013 was an exciting year for Southern Accents as we loaded up our truck and hit the road! The year started with a trip to New York where we worked with famed fashion designer Billy Reid, designing and constructing his set for Fashion Week in NYC. Back in Alabama we quickly reloaded the truck and made our way to the Birmingham Home and Garden Show in mid February. Two weeks later we traveled to Huntsville for the Building, Home & Remodeling Showand then quickly geared up for our largest salvage project to date inLittle Rock, Arkansas. The month of May saw us in Montgomery, Alabama for the premiere of the Southern Makers festival. Summer kept us busy as we hosted back to back events here at home:Southern Accents 2013 Alley Party and a day with former Auburn University head football coach Pat Dye. The year ended with us traveling to Atlanta, Georgia for the Haven Conference and then back to Montgomery for Chapel Market. With 2013 in the rear view mirror, we are looking forward to a new year filled with new adventures!
This year’s adventure that we are the most excited about is just around the corner! May 3, 2014 will see us return to Montgomery, Alabama for the second annual Southern Makers Festival. Held at the Union Station Train Shed in downtown Montgomery, this year’s affair is already shaping up to be the can’t miss event of the year! Southern Makers is a highly curated festival that brings together the top artists, chefs, breweries, craftsmen, and designers for one fantastic gathering to explore the contemporary side of Alabama’a heritage of textiles, music, craftsmanship and food. Make plans now to attend… you don’t want to miss it! Visit Southern Makers online for all the details.
