A big hit in our booth this year was the “What Is It” Display and contest. Lots of folks participated in guessing what all the odd looking tools were used for. Sorry I couldn’t help you out, I didn’t know the answers either! :)
This year, Beth Douglass-Silcox , the author of the children’s book, The Little Rumely Man, was signing autographs in our booth! Check out her site to order a book for your kids or grandkids!
Look who stopped by to say hello! It’s Towmater, or a homemade version of him, from the animated movie Cars. Chuck Pelley of Wheatland, Iowa, built the Towmater.
These kids were learning all about rope-making in the Log Village area on the south end of the grounds. At Mt. Pleasant, you can find continuous living demonstrations like this, plus rail-splitting, soap-making, blacksmithing, rug weaving, and much more.
I’ve had the fun experience of sharing the sights of the show with my parents in the past, and this year my youngest son joined me. It’s truly a great family show!
Join us at the show this year (Aug. 28-Sept. 1, 2014) in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. Stop in and sign up to win some fun prizes. We will be there to help you renew your subscriptions and fill up your book shelf with some new books! www.oldthreshers.com
