“Kid Row was a great experience. I met lots of people who were very nice and encouraged me to keep up with my business. It was so cool that I even decided to have a booth at the [First Annual Craft Lake City] Holiday Market in Ogden this past December – I never would have thought I could do this if it wasn’t for my experience on Kid Row,” said Casey of Casey Creates.
