Our newest endeavor this Spring was to take part in a local annual Renaissance Fair, held right here in our little village. It was held on a beautiful, sunny weekend in May, and was quite well attended.
The vendors were arrayed in costumes to add to the Renaissance atmosphere. These vendors were set up right next to us. They sold all different types of things. Next to them were people who did sketches of individuals as they posed to have their picture drawn by the artists. They looked like they were having a lot of fun!
We also had people across from us who had sculptures made from various shells. They were quite large and interesting! Visitors to the May Faire Renaissance Fair were able to buy refreshments, avail themselves of various entertainment presentations including singers, dancers, demonstrations and the like, and browse all the vendor tents. So many different things were being sold that I could make a huge list! There was no admission cost to them!
This experience was an idyllic trip into the past in a gorgeous setting with perfect weather and wonderful participants. We met many people who just stopped in because they were driving by and saw the vendor tents and the people in costumes. In my little town, it was a wonderful boost to the local economy as well!
If your business needs to move up to the next level, try something new!
