I heard several shops hocking that this was their last year and they were trying to clear inventory. >:(

My question...is there a "happy place" between Renaissance Festival and Fantasy Fleamarket?

I've never heard so many employees not even try to sound like they were in character...

Well...another season is over.  >:(

I left faire, yesterday, a very unhappy camper.  Sullen employees...food prices through the roof...and crowded to the point that i was getting twitchy. >:(

I couldn't even enjoy the fact that I had a first time garber and a faire virgin with me... >:(

By the time I ran across my friends...outside of the Sea Devil, of course...I was ready to shake a few hands, hug a couple and get the H ell out of there.

StudMuffin & I went on Black Friday and the Beefeaters say there were 31,000 people there but it didn't seem that bad to me.  Almost 36K on Sunday.  Sorry I missed you Fraser but I never go on the last day.  They always run out of all the good beer.

I have found it helps to get there VERY early.  Between 9 and 10 the old magic reappears in the near empty lanes.
