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 : (yeah, I am still not believing that either!).

We’d like to personally thank Nourish Lexington, 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 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.

Getting pretty braids from Ye Olde Hair Shoppe

If you’re a lady of old time fashion, you would most likely have long enough hair to braid it in a way to make it more renaissance style.  Julie DiMarzio from Ye Olde Hair Shoppe can help you out.  Even though she has short hair herself she knows hair and how to make it look like something from the past with hair wraps.

She does travel from different Faires.  We met her at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire last fall and also at the New Hampshire Renaissance Faire this past May.  She was all excited to be at Winslowshire Festival this year (her first year) and loved her spot across from the Trellis stage where she could watch different performers for both days and near the privies (always a bonus).

She was happy to be close to home in MA so we hope that she comes back again for next year’s event, which we will post about hopefully shortly.
