2012 Trade fair Update

The Trade fair Committee has contracted with Ken Netting for an English Fowler for the grand prize for the 2012 Trade fair raffle. The fowler, which will be done around April 2012, will have a 50" .62 caliber round barrel made by Mr. Netting, Chambers round faced lock, stocked in cherry with brass furniture. In addition, other prizes we have commitments for are an 18th century plate by Amanda Lipps of Common Ground Pottery, Several items from Randy Wolf, Bethel Forge, including a folding knife, wallet, and hand forged trivet. Bushnell Bottle has donated a very nice 18th century glass bottle for the raffle. Wild Willy will be doing a horn bowl with fork and knife, Darrel Lang of Leathers from the Past will be supplying one of his great leather items, Hidden Dirk Mercantile will be supplying an item yet to be determined. I will be working with several other vendor's to see if we can get more prizes.
As more information is available, I will post it on this site. Have a warm and safe winter and I'll see some of you at the Fremont Trade Fair in February.
