I have been dutifully going to the ‘Huggins Fair’ — now called the ‘Street Fair’ — bar a few years at most, over the last 25-years. However my days of going on both days, Friday & Saturday, and possibly multiple times a day, are long gone. Basically there is nothing we really need at the Fair. We just go for the fun of being there and to see if there are any crazy bargains to be had. So over the last few years we have fallen into the habit of going late on Saturday evening and staying there till the end. It can be a lot of fun and that is when the bargains kick-in.

We knew about the storm — since Friday. But we decided to go anyway. The storm was spectacular. We didn’t get wet. We took shelter in the “Men’s White Elephant” tent.

Once the storm passed there was a full rainbow and the sun came out in force. The ground was soggy, but it was OK.

We had fun. Didn’t get much — at all, at all. I picked up about 8 books and that, to I, is always a thrill. That is one of my main rationales for going. To see if I can find a few good books. So another 2017 event is done for the year. The next one will be a year from now.

“Huggins Fair 2017”, Wolfeboro, N.H. Will Be On Friday, August 4 & Saturday, August 5.

by Anura Guruge



Note, it is, by tradition, strictly a Friday & Saturday event; first Friday of August, rain, shine, hail or hurricane. If you go on Sunday all you will find these days are empty tents. Up until 6 – 7 years ago the huge book tent would still have all the unsold books in it and you were encouraged to take as many away — for free. Now they have exchange students from abroad, staying at Brewster over the Summer, come and clear the books away Saturday night.

Unless it is beyond torrential rains we will be there late on Saturday, as we always are — even in heavy downpours.

See you there.

It, alas, is again that time of year — I have to go for my dreaded annual physical, where I will get told off for how unhealthy I am, and told to lose more weight, get my cholesterol down and that I should watch my diet. Given that I like to get much of the bad news done face-to-face I insist that I get my blood tests done before I go to meet with the doctor. So it was time to get my blood tests done. Hence, Huggins — despite them once screwing up my PSA test by stating that I was a woman.

Well going to Huggins on a Sunday morning to get your blood tests is not a bad idea. Place was deserted. Did NOT see a single other ‘patient’. No lines. Just I.

Huggins always has a good show of flowers in the Summer. So I was banking on taking some pictures. They have more in the back but I literally didn’t have the energy to make it to the back since I had fasted for 15 hours.
