Plying Your Wares!
As with a typical country Faire anywhere, Elizabethan Faires incorporated a great mix of hand made goods, games, and trading. Demonstrating your talent or craft, from spinning, weaving, and pottery throwing, to candlemaking, blacksmithing, or needlework will attract the Public eye. This is the place to show off your Sheep, or Goats, or Pigs, or Fowle!
Show off your handmade goodes. Introduce them to the Sheep that shirt came from, or invite them to try their hand at spinning or weaving! Sell your goods by insisting they were carried on the backs of camels from the wilds of the far Indies, or tell a tale of danger while trading for your goodes with the wily Celts. The Public will remember you with delight if you play with them and get them involved.
This list is limited only by your particular Arts, Skills and Imagination!
HAWKING YOUR WARES
Think about how Elizabethan merchants would have sold their wares at an open market. Let your voice be heard in the Village streets as you call out to Public, declaring the worth of your fine goods.
DEMONSTRATIONS & HANDS ON INVOLVEMENT
Many Crafters have found that working on their product while at Faire, or when possible allowing hands on interaction, attracts the public to their booth.
