Vintage Village

As you can probably tell, we’ve been having a lot of fun with our new Flip Mino video recorder we brought to this year’s Fair. Here’s a small sampling of some of the exhibitors in the Village of Yesteryear, one of the best places on the fairgrounds to stock up on unique Christmas gifts you’ll get major props on from your mom.

In the video you’ll see Jack Coyle of Coyle’s Toyles help a boy sew together a stuffed animal while the boy (who autographs the animal “Wilson”–wonder if it’s his name or the animal’s new moniker?) hand powers the sewing machine. What a cool old-fashioned take on the stuffed animal stores in the mall!

About Cotton Candy

Karlie Justus - blogged for the 2008 / 2009 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: When I'm not blogging for the N.C. State Fair, I go by Karlie Justus--but Cotton Candy suits me just fine. My earliest memories of the Fair are of the times my parents would bring my brother and I up from Asheville, N.C. for a double dose of the Fair and a N.C. State football game. Fast-forward two decades later, and I'm a public information officer for the deep fried celebration whose must-see Fair attractions include the giant pumpkins, decorated cakes and deep fried Oreos.
