Tips for Attending a Mother Earth News Fair
by Barbara-NH, Saturday, February 18, 2017, 19:25 (38 days ago)
If you've never attended a Mother Earth News Fair before, you should find this article on the Community Chickens website very helpful. It has some great advice about what to expect and how to enjoy your day at the fair. It was written a couple of years ago, but the fairs haven't changed, so the advice is still relevant.
Great Attendance at the Fair

We were so fortunate to have beautiful weather and great attendance at the fair in Belton. There were three of us in the booth and we were very busy on Saturday and steady busy on Sunday (which is traditionally a slower day than Saturday). Lots of people very interested in guineas...most said their grandparents had guineas and they remembered them from that time. We are making a impact on the people who want to have guineas. YAY!!!
Wonderful to hear, Zoe!

Nice to know things went well and that the weather cooperated. Sorry it's so tiring, though. Hopefully, we can get more people to help out with our booth so the responsibilities are less taxing for all involved. I guess that's the price we pay for being involved in something that so many people are interested in.
YES!! More people would be helpful

Hopefully, we can get more folks involved. We got three new members this weekend. YAY!!!
