Hooray! It’s my favorite month of the year. The leaves are changing, the weather is cool and less humid and it’s the start of my busy show season.
A Gathering of Rogues and Ruffians Renaissance Faire was a wonderful way to finish out the outdoor season. Set up was available on Friday and that gave me the opportunity to meet other vendors.
The weather could not have been better and attendance was great. I was proud of the way my art fair tent transitioned into a renaissance pavilion. This was a two day event so I got to get out several renaissance garb sets. On Saturday, I dressed as a pirate. I was participating in the Pirate Quest where kids come to booths on a scavenger hunt to collect beads. The clue for mine was my pirate flag. Greg joined the fun on both days.
The renaissance faire was followed up by my annual trip to Ontonagon in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We stay in a cabin on the shore of Lake Superior. I recommend these lodgings to anyone interested in the North Coast. Every night concludes with a beautiful sunset over the Porcupine Mountains to the west.
Now that we have returned, I will be loading up my Ford Escape for indoor shows. The seats come back out, the Canopy is packed away until spring and the dolly cart will be loaded instead.
My next show is in my home town- the Oregon Fire and EMT Craft Fair on Saturday October 22nd 9am-3pm at Oregon Middle School 601 Pleasant Oak Dr. This will be my 5th season doing the show and it is always well attended. This is the 22nd annual craft fair and all proceeds will be used for the enrichment of the Oregon Fire\EMS District volunteers through the purchase of equipment and training for the Firefighters and EMT’s.
Hey- the 22nd show on October 22!
I will be vending at a couple new shows for me this year. Watch for me in Hilldale Mall on November 5-6 Saturday 10 am- 9 pm & Sunday 11am-6pm and on Shop Small Saturday November 26th.
