    Free Samples

    Vickie's Jelly Jar & Mousseux Cider

    Fondest memory: You don't see it very often at festival booths, but there were some free samples offered at the Craft Fair and both examples were right across the road from one another on Union Street. The first one was jelly samples at Vickie's Jelly Jar. They traveled all the way from Virginia Beach to pitch their tent here. They had a range of jelly flavours to be tried on soda crackers. I sampled the pecan and I would have bought a small jar too if I had a place to put it between then and the time to leave. Directly across the street, directly in front of the Village Americana furniture store was the Mousseux Cider tent. They were offering non-alcoholic sparkling cider in medium and large bottles, giving the free samples in little-bitty Dixie cups. By that time of day, any liquid refreshment- especially that at no cost- was welcome. Lee had intended to buy himself a bottle of cider, but we never passed that way again.

    All manner of food

    a wide range of food

    Fondest memory: There was all manner of food to be had at the Craft Fair. They offered everything from Philadelphia-styled cheese steaks, hot dogs, hamburgers, curly fries, lemonade, smoothies, crab cake sandwiches, Italian sausages, and even specialty soft drinks. Despite all this cuisine-de-fun fair, Lee and I decided to take a late lunch at a sit-down restaurant.

    Wild Bill's Olde Fashioned Soda Pop Co.

    Fondest memory: Most vendors at the Craft Fair set up shop in tents. These folks had something that looked like a wagon from the wild west. They not only offered unique flavours but they served them in 32-ounce collectible mugs. No doubt, on that hot day, that drink wagon was busy.

    American made

    Made in the U.S.A.

    Favorite thing: The Craft Fair featured many booths, but one that got my attention was one that featured only products made in America. Going to the Wal-Mart or other such store, one might think they don't make anything here anymore. However, this was yet another misconception of mine laid to rest in Occoquan that day.

    Pretties...

    Favorite thing: Actually, these are fake ones...but they were so pretty, and I love hydrangeas.

    Fondest memory: I always take people here that I like and we always have a nice time.
