Vinland Fair blog has new web address

•August 8, 2012 • Leave a Comment



Hi everyone! The blog has a new home:

I am no longer managing it because I live very far from the fair and Kansas – Los Angeles to be exact. Barbara Brackman has been handling the blog since last year and needed to bring it over to her system. So please visit the new address – it has all the most up to date info and lots of humor! I will miss everyone and the wonderful fair memories but will go to Babara’s blog and get a taste of this year’s fair.



Looking Forward to 2012
