Friday Shopping: Off to the Faire!

Faire season has started, and I’m excited! If you’ve never been to a faire, I highly encourage checking one out. Whether it’s a fantasy faire filled with fairies and wizards, or a medieval faire highlighting a historic period, they take you for a time to a different world. Here are some Etsy handmade highlights to make your faire day more amazing.
