An Event!

Looking for a day trip? There is a very interesting event taking place on August 24th and 25th (2013) at Whispergreen Farm in Carlisle Ontario (L0H 1H0).  A craft show meets pioneer festival is the best way I can describe it...old fashioned, family friendly, eco friendly skills, wares, displays, and demos at their finest.
This link is for the full list of vendors that will be at the show - all from Southwestern Ontario, and almost all Etsy vendors (I am including a link where possible so you can shop even if you can't get to the show).
                               There is going to be:
a canoe maker,

 garden art from Gibson's Garden Accents,


upcycled clothes from HoneyBea Designs,
 dolls by TheFancifulDoll (I am more than a little in love with this one),
 baking (yes, please),
fantastic embroidered pieces by embroiderwee,
jewellery made from classic books by TheUnwrittenWord
rustic and primitive pieces (this is a stack of pebble and cork coasters) from Rustic Revivals,

a period seamstress, steampunk, a blacksmith, stained glass, photography, candles, painting,cool drinks, and more.

There are demonstrations (all of the following pictures are from last year's show, with permission from Julie of Rustic Revivals - from their facebook page):

There are activities, story telling, buskers, games, contests, and costumes. 


Here is a link to a post on Ontario Rural Routes with maps, links, pictures and reviews.

I apologize to any vendors I have missed.  Leave me a comment so I can find you and I will add you in!

And here is their poster so you can "Pin" it, if you wish.
