The Western Fair is London's traditional fall fair, but I guess it isn't so traditional anymore. They've decided to drop the crafts or "Home Arts" as the politically correct call it. You can read about in the local paper here. This is starting to create a bit of buzz at our guild, you can read what I wrote on our guild blog here. Me, I never go to the Western Fair, it got too messy, it was too big to be cozy, and too small to be eventful. Overpriced entry fee, I didn't care for the rides, and the silly games, food was terrible, lots of wasps, in the outdoor part, and too much crap for sale in the main building, the animals were, well...looking at horses' butts in stalls wasn't that great either. Am I too much of a city girl to get it? Maybe I have to go with kids to see it through their eyes...and come to think of it, I can't remember even seeing the crafts...probably my husband steered me away. So tell me, is it the same for you, does your home town have a fall fair and is it any good?
Also! I want to thank all you wonderful bloggers out there for your really nice comments about Black Cats Staring, I really appreciate it! I think it's a record number of comments for me, you guys are great!
