Keith and Kevin McKay from Cassel were back again this year with their fascinating array of items made from natural products such as wood, stone, and pinecones. Their pens, hand-crafted from horse and bear manure are always a favorite.

When I asked Ilene about her day, she said, “Beautiful day, wonderful people, lots of fun!”
