Kids at a Crafts Fair

Checking out the hand carved chess boards at the Wolfeboro Craft Fair

If you are like me, you might not think about bringing your toddler to a craft fair. My sister and I love to look for unique handmade jewelry. We ran over to check out a fair that was closing the weekend we arrived in New Hampshire.

Gifts for kids of every shape and size

The annual On the Green II Arts and Crafts Festival in Wolfeboro, NH had about 100 exhibitors. They were expecting about 10,000 people over the course of the weekend. It took place on the grounds of Brewster Academy at the center of town, on Lake Winnipesaukee.

A creamer and sugar dish were the big find for my sister at the craft fair

I left Dek with his grandparents, assuming he would be bored to tears. I should have known better. There were kids and puppy dogs everywhere. Dek would have been in heaven.

Hand made glass beads and a $65 bronze necklace I had to resist buying

Kids ran between the fudge man, kettle corn cart, ice cream truck and fresh-squeezed lemonade stand. I ran with them to the maple syrup guy who was giving out free samples of maple cotton candy. My sister didn’t think it was anything special. Happily she married a wonderful man who agreed with me that it tasted like toasted marshmallows. Delicious!

My favorite treat at the fair- maple sugar candy

Next year, I won’t make the mistake of leaving Dek at the cabin. I’ll be bringing him along to join in all the fun. Then again, his grandparents are pretty darn fun too. Maybe I’ll just let him decide.

    Just watch out how many candies you pass around to kids. I love them so much I had them as our favors at our wedding. My little cousin had so many she ran into a wall she was so sugared up 😉
