Best part of the fair? The traditional crafts area. Spinning, weaving, a working log cabin, broom making. Awesome. I bought a hand made broom. Awesome.

I never knew about that area!! You have just convinced me to go next year. The little shingled house is finally on the market. It’s a happy sad kind of thing. But I am hoping more fiberly crafting will be in the cards for me. Glad to see you are enjoying the Fair!
Who knew you’d go to the fair and come home with a broom?!? Awesome! I’m so happy the weather worked out for you.
Our fair doesn’t have a traditional crafts area, so to speak. We have a blacksmith that wears a handkerchief and says “If they would have had it, they would have worn it,” and talks about bringing in some kind of electrical do-hinky to work the fire. The log cabin is run traditionally. We have a “bodger” – carves bowls with a spring-pole lathe. But the rest of “Heritage Square” is full of all-ready-made articles but no demonstrations. And NO brooms! Sigh. I’d love to come to your fair someday. Is it as big as ours? Probably bigger – you have more people.
Wow…our fair isn’t anything like that!
Sorry I haven’t stopped by your blog in a while; canning, harvest, market, blah-de-blah…you know how it goes! Hope your back feels better soon.
