Hey Kessy

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetHey Kessy began as an online craft store. Famous for selling washi tape (with their own Filipino-themed designs), the store has expanded to selling stamps, unique postcards, mason jars, cutting tools, jewelry making items, and more.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetThe Hey Kessy store is surprisingly small but makes great use of its space. The front is a full floor to ceiling window  that lets natural light shine through. The colors are simple, white walls,wooden panels, and white shelves all contributing to the illusion of space. You’d think the small area would make the store look cramped and they wouldn’t be able to show all the products they have to offer but that is far from the case.

Paper straws are on a pink shelf, calligraphy materials, liquid chalk pens, doilies, and stickers on another shelf, books on a hanging shelf, Mod Podge, Mason Jars, and corkboards on another shelf.

Hey Kessy’s floor space may be small but the item’s they’re offering are amply stocked, enough to show a beautiful, creative space without being overwhelming. It’s a must-visit for all the Manila crafters out there.
