Well, the 4th Annual Schoenbrunn Trade Fair is over and it was a great weekend. A little rainy on Saturday morning but glorious Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Turnout was very good for both participants and public. The Ken Netting fowler was won by Pat Lipps from Common Ground Pottery!

As usual, the breakfasts both days were superb and the Village Volunteers did a masterful job of keeping wood supplied and making sure we had everything we needed. Special thanks go out to Roy Howman, Lee McBee, Dave Moore, Raplh Arms, and Matt Bottomly for all their help in making my job a lot easier. 

 Thanks also to Todd Miller for his great demonstrations on Flax breaking, Matt Wulff and Mark Cory for their excellent talks each day, Greg and Marianne Leopold for the GREAT food, and all the guys who helped out with the Musket demonstrations each day!

 Next year's Trade Fair will be October 19 & 20, 2013 so get it on your schedule soon. If you haven't been to this event, you are missing one fun weekend! See you all next year! Have a Happy Holiday season!
