flannel was another hot item every where. it was worn to keep warm and as work wear, but also it a more fashionable way.
backpacks and tote bags were also another big thing. leather, canvas, or traditional ll bean, they were ready to be filled with all those fair purchases.
and last but not least (and still dying to diy), floral headbands. these ones were made to order on the fairgrounds out of sweet anni and fresh flowers. they were beautiful and fragrant and really pulled the fair look together.
