Day Seven--Craftsman

One of the reasons I like going to the Renaissance Fair every year is to shop.  And there is a lot to buy, if you are so inclined.

A few years ago I stopped at the booth of the Bronze Jewelers.  My hair was getting quite long and they had some really neat hair barrettes and combs, so I went shopping.  I now own two barrettes and a comb and couldn't possibly be any happier than I am--the crafstmanship is amazing!  And the best thing is, they keep my hair where I want it!  This year I bought a barrette that is very much like this one:

I love this so much that I can't wait to go back next year and buy another!

Another booth that amazes me is Wondrous Works in Wood.  They make mugs, cups, bowls, etc out of wood that you can actually USE!  A couple of years ago, K bought a mug very similar to this:

While he has never drank from this mug, it is perfectly safe to drink from--even coffee can be put in these!  Amazing.  Even though the prices are a bit high, I think we need to get at least one more piece next year.
