I have been to the fair more than a dozen times in my life. My fathers best friend and family lived there many years ago so we used to visit quite often when I was a child. Fair time is always something special. It is especially fun when there is a little chill in the air. I took a few photos of the dedicated craftspeople working away as well as the people who dress up on Civil War gear. From hand carved beds, brooms, pottery, baskets, and blacksmith it is refreshing to see something truly American made.
