Merry Meet, Merry Part and Merry Meet Again

All good things must come to an end….even little Winslowshire Festival.  Yes…it is true.

Winslow farm has decided that they are going in a different direction.

We would like to thank ALL of our performers, merchants and of course our hard working cast and crew that made this Festival 10 Classic Renaissance Faires across America : http://www.thedailymeal.com/10-classic-renaissance-faires-across-america (yeah, I am still not believing that either!).

We’d like to personally thank Nourish Lexington, http://www.nourishlexington.com who not only became the one and only Vegetarian food vendor that was fabulous but also was like finding a diamond – plus we now became friends.

We would like to thank ALL of you who came to the festival, whether it was our very first year (yeah, it was small) to the very last year (2011 season).  We would like to thank ALL of the people who have supported us (behind the scenes) like GoBostonCom http://www.gobostoncom.com and others.

We thank all of YOU who have become our friends and family – we were lucky to see some friends from the past (who I never thought I would see again) and meet some new ones every year.

We have other festivals/faires in the works, so other things are coming our way.  I like to think that Winslowshire was my springboard into this new career for both of us.  Without that, we would not have had this many opportunities that have come our way now.

So, Merry Meet, merry part and Merry Meet Again – Fare thee well, Winslowshire, you will always remain sweet in our eyes.

Second Annual – Holidays with Winslowshire Vendors

I did this blog last year and I did a section all about ideas that you might like for the upcoming Holiday season with some of the vendors that we had.

Here is my second annual Holidays with Winslowshire Vendors from 2010 season.  Some of them do take credit card and on line shopping, so please check their website for more details.

For those art lovers, they might like Andrew Volpe http://www.andyvolpe.com/index.html – statement from his website  “Aside from Reenacting / Living History, I am also an Artist, specializing in works on paper, pencil drawing, as well as Printmaking.”

Or maybe a science fiction book by Resa Nelson http://www.resanelson.com/ – she just came out with a brand new novel called “Our Lady of the Absolute”  about a Modern Day society based on Ancient Egypt.

Are you or your family looking for flowers for Thanksgiving , Christmas or Hanukkah (or Winter Solstice)?  You might try http://www.glimpseofgaia.com/Home_Page.html Glimpse of Gaia has some lovely flowers that would look really nice on any table.

If any of your family cooks or likes to cook, you will love (and I mean LOVE) Cucina Aurora http://www.cucinaaurora.com/ who has wonderfully delicious fused olive oils, spices and there is a cookbook also available for recipes.

Oh and if you still get hungry, you can always check out our friends with Nourish Lexington http://www.nourishlexington.com/ who always has amazing food and is an open space to just relax in (oh and they have live music sometimes too).

Please do check out these vendors this Holiday season, and I’ll post more next month to be fair (ha! a Pun!) to everyone.

Enjoy and be safe everyone!

New things coming for this June!

We’ve been working hard already to see what we can come up with for new things for this June at Winslowshire Festival for the Animals.

We will be having an ATM machine on site to make it easier for patrons to get money in case a vendor only takes cash.  We also will be having our first official faire florist http://www.glimpseofgaia.com/Home_Page.htmland they are looking forward to being part of Winslowshire.

We are looking forward to this June, and we look forward on seeing you there!
