A publicity photo shoot for the Carlisle Country Craft and Old-Fashioned Market Mercantile

In which I definitely leave my comfort zone!
As one of the sponsors for the event, I was asked to come in costume (the options for the show are Pioneer, Victorian, Steampunk, or hill-billy) to meet with three of the others, and the photographer to do a publicity photo shoot.  Due to illness, a couple of people weren't able to make it...
...leaving us with just two people in the pictures, which makes it harder to camouflage the fact that I am quite uncomfortable getting my picture taken.  The photographer (Yvonne Parsons Photography) was great, AND she'll be doing sepia portraits at the show both days.

The event:  Carlisle Country Craft and Old-Fashioned Market Mercantile
Dates: August 23-24, 2014 from 10:00 - 5:00 each day
Location: Mountsberg Hall and Fields in Flamborough County
              2133 Centre Road, Hamilton L0P 1K0 (for GPS directions)
Admission: $2.00 per person - kids 12 and under are FREE
What we'll have:  a great collection of artisans with old-fashioned skills - weaving, spinning, pottery,      felting, soapmaking, paper making, a blacksmith, tatting, wooden musical instruments, oh                goodness - so much more.
     Also buskers and live entertainment - magic, music, games in the Village Green, snacks and            drinks, live demos, portraits, and a petting zoo.

It's a great day trip, but if you live a little ways away - there are 3 cities within a 20 minute drive with plenty of hotels to make it a weekend trip.   There are buckets of waterfalls to visit and it's not far from the African Lion Safari.  There's also camping nearby.

PS: I'm the one standing up.  It will be in print sometime soon.
