Carp Fair Demo

This is the last Demo until spring. the carp Fair was celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. It was a beautiful weekend cool in the morning and hot by mid afternoon.  There were more people their than ever before. We demoed an extra hour. It was alot of fun chatting with everyone that came by

    Lots of interesting things to see – and good weather too!

    I like the shawl you have on your stand – it’s a beautiful rainbow of colours.

    It looks like there were lots of interesting stands, were they grouped together by interest?

    Looks wonderful Ann. Why is it called the Carp fair? Is that a place name or is it for the fish? Your booth looks great.
