Richie and I planned a trip up to Eureka Springs and the War Eagle Craft Fair last weekend. His mom and her friend Judy also came with us. We spent Friday night at the Matterhorn Towers Hotel in Eureka. It was old but nice. I was glad because when I called to get reservations back in August everything was already booked! We lucked into the last two rooms at the Matterhorn. Saturday morning we got up early and left the hotel by 6:30 AM to drive the 30 minutes to War Eagle Mill where the craft fair was being held. The weather was cold in the morning! Cold enough for jeans and sweatshirts! We got there a little early and had breakfast in the Mill. They were really crowded and the food wasn’t really all that good but we decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and blame it on the crowd! Maybe if we go back again it will be much better. When we finished eating, most of the booths were open and we were able to start looking around. We spent about 4 hours looking and shopping and eating good food. I had some awesome roasted corn and Richie had a really good strawberry crepe that he let me have a bit of. I bought a few cool things at the craft fair.
Here are some picks of the mill and the general area around it. It sure was pretty.
Here is Richie standing on the bridge.
Here is a cute Turkey thing near the entrance!
Here are the three ornaments I bought. They are all make with real wool from the sheep and Llamas on the womans farm.
Here is the hat I got for my nephew.
Here is the goard I got for my good friend Dee’s son. He paints them and makes birdhouses out of them.
It kind of looks like a potato!
Richie also got this neat frog thing but he took it to school today so I will have to add a picture tomorrow. We really had a great time at the War Eagle Craft Fair!
