Renaissance Pleasure Faire North

Ah, the Faire...I first visited Chipping Under Oakwood back in 1996, cynical and doubtful. But after a mug of ale (or two) I found myself in love with it all. Returning in 1997, I went almost every weekend. I was determined to become more involved somehow, and with 1998 being the final year at the Black Point location, I decided to participate. Luckily, I met up with someone I had met the previous year, and she was running her own booth for the first time. It seemed like a great combo, with us being both "newbies" of sorts (even though she was a Faire veteran). And, so, I stood in the road in 105 degree heat, speaking 16th century English, selling hand-painted eggs, and having the time of my life. Here are some pictures I took at faire. I don't mind if anyone downloads them if they are for personal, non-commercial use. Just give me credit where it's due!
