Staycationing: Off to the Lake Forest Art Fair on the Square
I took the 3:04 pm train and returned on the 5:24 train, and it was just enough time to see everything without too much lingering at any one exhibit. There are some nice things at the show, and some very nice things, too. There were some artsy kids clothes, and pretty clothes for ladies. One vendor had every type of artistic wooden spoon you could dream of, and next to him was a vendor selling some nice Japanese type pottery with a number of small vases that were very affordable. There was sculpture, jewelry, and some pricey but very creative baskets. Of course, there were paintings and photos, and a number of different kinds of art.
A number of very good looking dogs accompanied some shoppers, so if you have a very well behaved pooch, you probably can take him, but I don't think they can go on the train. The kids there seemed to be having a very limited amount of fun, but don't hesitate to take older family members because there are a number of benches around the square. I heard a number of people comment on how nice this art show was, and with the mild weather it was something pleasant to do outside.
