A Day at New Boston

On Thursday of last week, word came down from the weather stations around the area that remnants of Hurricane Issac were going to smack into the great State of Ohio on Saturday in full force - 4 to 5 inches of rain for the Miami Valley area (that's Dayton) on that day alone - and continue to rain on into Monday. This is when Beautiful Husband informs me that he wanted to treat me to a day at the Fair at New Boston, but as things stood we probably wouldn't be able to go (that's like saying, "I was going to buy you that diamond ring, but the stock market crashed...") - what a tease my guy is! But as fate would have it, Hurricane Isaac leaped over the Miami Valley in a tall single bound, and me and Beautiful Hubs were fast on our way to the Fair. 

For those of you who have not had the opportunity to visit the New Boston show (just west of Springfield, Ohio), I thought I'd share some of the wonderful merchant wears available there (heaven knows I was drooling) - this to entice you, of course, and to encourage you to come to Central Ohio for a visit next year!

All of the shops were wonderful and carried such a variety of items, including clothing, shoes, furs and skins, knitting and spinning supplies, weaponry, et cetera. And, who can resist fire roasted corn on the cob, bison burgers, ham and beans, and ham on a biscuit? The hubs and I enjoyed ourselves, and I thank Hurricane Isaac for leap-frogging Dayton and smacking into Columbus and Cleveland instead - lol! 

Blessings and happy sewing!
