Ceramic Bird-shaped Whistles
« on: June 05, 2015, 10:26:47 PM »
Hello!  I hope I chose the right category for this question...

I was at the fair on Celtic weekend and I left without finding the vendor who was selling these neat little bird-shaped whistles. I saw one in blue but I'm not sure if there were other colors.  Had so much fun, completely forgot to investigate :(

Can anyone tell me who that vendor was?  And if they maybe have an online store?  I don't think they are listed on the merchant list, unless I am missing them.

Not sure which faire you were at, but you're probably thinking of Jake's Toys - http://www.jakes-toys.com/index.html

He sells ceramic bird whistles and various wooden toys.  At Scarborough he's in Holly Field, right near the Turtledrome.  His next show should be Sterling, NY.  Hope this helps!

  The ones that chirp when you fill them with water? 
  I have a couple, they're neat.  The Hissing Serpent sells them at our faires- I think I paid $3.00 each for them. I bought one in terra cotta, and one painted and glazed, same price.
 
  There are a number of vendors-Search in Chirping bird water whistle, Chirping bird ocarina, etc.
  You can buy them on on Ebay for $1.50 for two.

Thank you both!

Bookwench:  I was at the fair in Virginia. I found this forum through their website, didn't notice that it was sort of an all-encompassing Ren Fair discussion site until now :) oops
