Holiday Faire this Saturday!

Poster: Denise McMahon <baroness@stierbach.org>

And now a brief digression from our usual topics- your pardon for the

Holiday Faire is November 21st and it's almost upon us!

We have a great many merchants coming to Holiday Faire! Folks like: Akeru
Thunder, Ancient Images, Dragon Song Keep, Howdy to Your Face Garb, Ice Falcon 
Armory, Kings Ransom, M'ah Own Garb, Mongol Raiders Surplus Outlet, Page 
After Page, Silverhorn Designs, Sleeping Dragon, The Bee Lady, Touch the
Casta Diva, Omnicorn Leather, Primrose Path,  and many other fine purveyors of
a variety of tempting items such as vinegars and spices, candles and pillows, celtic
jewelry,  quilts, feast gear, period plants, edibles and potables
(non-alcoholic), etc.
Sadly, it will also be the last Atlantian appearance of "The Evil Trim
Merchant", who
is relocating to more southernly reaches the day after our Faire! Help make
his packing 
easier or just drop by to say a wistful farewell to one of our favorite
merchants of  the 
past few years! Oh well, at least we'll see him at Pennsic! 

The Faire opens at 8:30am for merchants to set up and 10am for Faire goers.
Troll will be asking $5 for adults, $2 for children 10 and older, and of
children under 10 are our guests. There is no charge for merchants and their 
helpers and yes, we are still accepting merchant reservations! Troubadours, 
singers, jugglers, minstrels, story tellers, etc. will receive a discount of
$1 at 
the door. There will also be heavy weapons fighting, rapier tournaments, archery
as well as needlework and dancing classes.

Directions: Take your best route to I-95 in Virginia, Exit 156 (South of the 
Washington Beltway). Take Dale City Boulevard (Route 784) west to Minnieville 
Road. Turn left on Minnieville Road (Route 640). Turn Left on Cardinal Drive 
(Landmark: Two Churches on the Left Hand Side). Turn Right on Waterway Drive. 
Turn Right onto Spring Branch Blvd. (Landmark: Fire Station). Turn Right onto 
Tallowwood Drive. The school will be on the right. If you have an ADC map of 
Prince William County, the school is on map 21, grid B6. On-site telephone 
number is 703/407-5607 and is good for that day only.

The Faire closes at 6pm. There is no feast planned, although it looks like
there will be a few food merchants who can help you assauge the fierce
appetites you will surely develop from all that strenuous shopping and
fighting, etc.

Hope to see you there! If you have any questions or if you are a merchant
looking for last minute table space, write to Faire@stierbach.org or call
Baron Ivan
(John McMahon) at 703/450-8092.
