I Plan to make a hat like this one for Crockett Days this summer (early 19th Century Event). Bought the stuff to pull it together at the Market Fair outside of Lexington this weekend. Price on a finished hat was $ 145. We saw lots of people there like John Curry, Parson John, Maggie Delaney(his indentured servant), several natives, the tinsmith that was at the fort last weekend and many more. We sparked some interest in our upcoming events at Sycamore Shoals and got email addresses and phone numbers of interested re-enactors. One native there is a descendant of Dragging Canoe and may join us for the Transyvania Purchase as well as the Siege. Maggie and the Parson also voiced an interest I have their contact info. David and I skipped out on the Tavern Night event last night and are still kicking ourselves, but we had to get back home as we had lots of stuff to do around the house today and back to work on Monday. We were talkinking on the way home, wouldnt it be neat if our unit could do a MARKET FAIR someday? Just an idea, but you could count me in as helping pulling this event together. Winter is a great time of year when things aren’t so busy with events.
Your Friends, Sherry and David (Settlement Ambassadors LOL)
Blogmeister note: If Maggie Delaney comes, I can take servant lessons!
