Dear Friends: The Halcott Fair committee met this morning at the Grange Hall and decided to celebrate our 20th year with a different look. This year we will have a Fair Market, inviting anyone and everyone to bring a table (and a pop-up tent if they set up outside) and their favorite “thing” to sell.
We’re talking anything: books, honey, cheese, paintings, ceramics, crafts, your stash of crafts items you no longer use, vintage clothing, kitchen items, anything you think someone else would like and you no longer need. The deal will be: bring it in free — we will not charge for a table space and we will not ask for part of your profits. And then when the fair ends at 4:30 or so (when dinner starts) you pack up what’s leftover and take it out. We have been having more and more difficulty getting rid of stuff that people bring to sell and that doesn’t get sold. This new arrangement is a perfect solution which will assure a fun day for everyone, including the poor good souls who volunteer for clean-up.
Please help us make this the best fair ever. The more tables we get, the more interesting will be our little fair. If you know of someone who you think might be fun to have, please invite them! It’s also a great opportunity for kids to have a table, to learn the art of pricing, the thrill of selling, and the math of money-making. Please call or email Innes to get on a list of “marketeers.” Space is not just limited to the Grange Hall; folks can set up anywhere outside as well. Innes’ phone is 254-9920. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Of course the fair will continue to have games, prizes, petting zoo, stick race and other delights for kids, the Church bake sale table, some live music and our magician, hot dogs, strawberry lemonade, popcorn, sodas, and a wonderful dinner as a finale.
Please remember: the FAIR WILL HAVE NO ATTIC TREASURES TABLE! It is very important that you do not drop stuff off this year. If you do have items to donate, please consider getting a table for yourself and selling it. We look forward to seeing you this year — perhaps behind a table of treasures that are going like hotcakes!
All the best, Halcott Fair Committee
