SOUVENIRS AND APPAREL
It’s souvenir time! The 2013 Sandwich Fair souvenirs go on sale at the Gazebo at 9 a.m. the first day of the fair. Shop early; quantities are limited.
This year’s souvenirs feature the FFA Farm Zoo for the logo. The Farm Zoo is a cooperative achievement by area FFA chapters. Visitors to the zoo, short and tall, can pet the animals and talk to the young men and women who raise them.
The items with the special logo include a custom-made pottery piece by Deneen Pottery of St. Paul, MN. It is a glazed, sage-colored collectible suitable for soup, dip, display, or floral arrangement. The height is 3.5 inches and the diameter is 4.5 inches. Other collectibles are clear glass coffee/hot cocoa mugs, lapel/hat pins, and stoneware magnets. Artwork is by local artist Jackie Dannewitz.
Continuing the tradition that began in 2004, the Gazebo will sell a soft-stuffed animal designed by Glory Be. This year’s animal is a fuzzy yellow duck named “Doodle.” It is wearing a vest. A few animals from previous years will also be for sale.
T-shirts are available in two colors: short sleeve in Tennessee orange and long sleeve in dark chocolate brown. An over-the-head hooded sweatshirt is available in dark chocolate brown. All styles come in sizes S to XXXL. This year’s embroidered cap is brown with a windmill logo.
Several items are returning this year: Sandwich Fair flag, tote bags, postcards, and note cards. Fairgoers who are completing their collections of lapel pins and plush animals will find a few available from previous years.
These souvenirs may be purchased only at the Gazebo located just north of the Home Arts Building from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the fair.
