Souvenirs will go on sale the first day of the Sandwich Fair. New items this year are a pottery crock, plush animal, wooden ornament, visor cap and postcards.
This year’s souvenirs are decorated with a caboose logo representing the one located near the Home Arts Building. The custom-made pottery collectible is a solid red crock by Deneen of St. Paul, Minnesota. The height is 6.5 inches, and the width is 5 inches. Other collectibles are a clear glass mug and a die-cut maple ornament. The new visor cap is black.
Continuing the tradition that began in 2004, the Gazebo will sell a soft-stuffed plush animal designed by Glory Be. This year’s animal is a dog named “Gus.” He is wearing an engineer hat that complements the caboose embroidered on his stomach. A few animals from previous years also will be on sale.
The stoneware magnet has the caboose logo on a red background. There are two new postcards. One is oversized displaying a 1915 fair poster. The other has scenes from the FFA Farm Zoo.
T-shirts are available in two styles and two colors. The short sleeve is cherry red; the long sleeve is red. The hooded sweatshirt is black with a zipper. All styles come in sizes S to XXXL. The embroidered cap is black with a red bill and a windmill logo.
Several items are returning this year: the 3-by-5-foot fair flag, postcards and note cards. Artwork on the items is by local artist Jackie Dannewitz.
These items can be purchased only at the Gazebo located just north of the Home Arts Building near the WSPY broadcasting tent from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the fair.
