The annual Falmouth Rotary Craft Fair will take place again this weekend at the bandshell next to Falmouth Harbor! Every year (even pre child), I look forward to going to this fabulous event! I have noticed the past several years that it has become more and more family friendly! Once again they will have the old time fiddle contest, sure to delight the ears of oth the young and old! The moon bounce will also be back this year, so the kids can get out all that excess energy, especially the little ones before naptime!
But it is the crafters booths that keep me coming back every single year. I always take a walk up and down and inspect each and every booth because I have found treasure beyond all treasures here! Two years ago, I was able to buy one of the old Hess trucks for only $6!!! It made the perfect gift for my brother in law!!! Then there is the sweet older woman who I have decided to adopt as another grandmother! She makes gorgeous sweaters for the wee ones, complete with a zip up hoodie that is located on the back of the sweater! *** Ingenious!!!
One of my favorite tents to visit is the handcarved animals! First, every year it is a delight to see their children who get bigger and of course always remember me. Second the details in his carvings are exquisite, and definitely are a must to bring the kids to! The book section is definitely always a favorite with children's books for an amazing price and I have also found some pretyt amazing recipe books there as well, but you can't be afraid to dig thru the boxes! As I stroll along, I always pop by the infamous "Donut Team", whose homemade apple cider donuts, simply melt into your mouth... just going to grab a box of those donuts, is definitely worth $2 for checking out the fair!
