Renaissance Pleasure Fair #2 - The Goods

Too bad I didn't have much money to spend. I might have actually tried to find one of those costumes to wear next year. They had several clothing booths/shops with plenty to choose from for men, women and kids.


Then there were all of the hand-crafted items and the beautiful hand-blown glass vases, ornaments and other glass items. Did I already say they were beautiful?






The one thing I would have really bought if I had the money would have been the puppet below. The craftmanship on these things were fantastic. The largest one was about $175.00. This was a smaller one but still a little steep for my pocket this weekend. They sit on your shoulder and with hand movements you make them move on your shoulder.

Hello, Ms. Sweet and Saxy! These are beautiful; just beautiful! I've never been to a 'Ren Fair before, though they happen around here (probably all over). I used to have a couple of parents of students who worked at the local fairs. I think that may be one reason I stayed away! They were both certifiably nuts!

I hope when I go I get to see such wonderful crafts. That puppet is amazing!

Lovely post!

Those are pretty hand blown vases. I haven't been to one, but if I go, it would be cool, if I would dress up too. The $175 is not within my budget.
