Sorry we missed you, Sarvia.  Even your friend from the leather shop was asking about you.

We went today, along with Lady Kathleen and Lord Philip of Olmsted.  We had a wonderful time, but it was so bloody freezing that Lady Kathleen wore one of my afghans I keep in my car, and Lord Philip wore the other.

I had on my wool cloak and had to go back to the car and put on my cotton plaid wrap that matches my skit underneath my cloak.  Steve, who usually is always warm, had on a long sleeve shirt and his wool cloak, kilt, and knee socks and was also cold.  I don't think it got out of the 50's, maybe low, low 60's when the sun came out from behind the clouds.

We had a great time.  It was wonderful meeting Forum members Skrid the Brown and Lady Sarah, who looked absolutely gorgeous in their garb.  Also got a chance to meet Chris, who is involved with running this faire, and saw Cecils Tannequin as part of the Royal Court.

This year, the faire has grown so much from in the past.  This is the third year, and Steve and I have been every year, and we both noticed that there were a lot more merchants.  Plus a lot more people wearing garb than in the past.  It was so great to wear garb again and be back at a faire after the long, snowy winter.  Faire season has arrived for us.  Huzzah!

While the day was chilly, a great time was had by all.

ZIt was a trat to meet Cecils, Skrid the Brown with his lovely Lady Sarah, along with meeting and talking with many of the Bristol Performers and merchants. I did break down and make some purchases. A new pouch for the Earl, plumes, a favor and hankerchief for me.

Thank you all so much for coming!  We had a great event despite the wind and cold on Sunday.  This year's event marks the first year that we own it, and it was enough of a success that we'll be able to do another year at least!  :)

The profits from the event go to support local community action groups and education, so thanks so much!

Even I noticed that there were more in attendance this year as well as people attending in garb. It was wonderful. More vendors too!! That was nice to see. Perhaps this time there was better exposure in teh advertising department, which will bring out the people.

Perhaps a few more acts and the Bristol Queen may make her presence so that she can interact with the children. There were more children with their parents this time too. A mini-Bristol Faire.
