|Our booth for the day|
East Poultney Day was a lot of fun. The weather was perfect for that kind of day--partly cloudy and warm without being too hot. There were a fair amount of people about. Not as packed as it has been some years. The focus of the day is undergoing change. It used to be a huge flea market affair on the green, with a few people dressed in "colonial" garb leading tours, or acting as hosts, for the three museums that border the green. Now it is given over to artisans, handcrafters and locally produced items. Antiques, as opposed to yard sale stuff. This year they erected a tent so that there could be continual programing--things like short lectures on the history of the town and demonstrations of different crafts. The band played at some point, as did a local folk group. All seeming to be the quintessential Vermont summer experience.
Which just goes to show, you just never know what can happen at these outings.
P.S. And I did sell a hat.
