Peddler’s Faire people were sweating the weather after the downpour but the day was lovely. Just some fluffy clouds and a breeze, mostly sun, greeted the many Faire goers Sunday. There were all kinds of items for sale, something for everyone!

Dolly Haskell had her longtime friend, Gayle Martin from Concord, visiting and taking in the Faire. Dolly and Gayle went to elementary through high school together.
