Working as a re-enactor, it's wonderful to keep alive the old ways and create things that neither beep, fax, or microwave. I relish history and craftsmanship from the past, and stand in admiration of the God-given ingenuity of our ancestors. Not to mention that I like playing dress-ups. Sometimes though, it's very nice to be on the other side of the counter, so to speak, and to simply observe my fellow living historians/artisans at their craft. So dear readers, let's go to the fair.
