Ancient Medicine Cabinet had our first fair booth today!
It was a 2-day event that was a BLAST!
We were located in Stillwater, Minnesota.
Here we are praying over our product, booth, gospel tracks, and business cards before we started setting up!
Here's what our booth looked like as we started setting up.
We ended up needing to run to Walmart and purchase a tent.
Day one we got SUNBURNT HORRIBLY!
Day two we got some pretty strong rain storms.
It was fun walking around getting to know the other vendors and picking up some junk for our families.
Alyssa got to spend time with her nieces.
We got to share the gospel with lots of people including a gospel track in every purchase as well as being able to as people questions like, "What would you say God's requirements are for you to get into heaven?"
Our favorite part was laying hands on people and praying for them.
Sunday morning, I went to church while my sisters held down the fort at the fair until I could come after worship.
Here we are listening to the message on BIBLE RADIO.
It was a blast! :)

I learned a few things doing this fair:
(1) There a lot of people with LIVER issues. I believe this is due to the overuse of over-the-counter medicine such as Tylenol and Ibrophin. Seriously, I've never met so many people with liver problems.
(2) Not make people actually craft things with their hands any more. Almost all the booths at this fair were those "business in a box" things like Lula Rue, Young Living, and some candle making booth. Even the booths that had creams and such were all purchased and re-sold items. Other booths were selling junk they got for free off craigslist. Some places sold refurbished furniture, but very few of them.
(3) People are familiar with essentials oils (if only from hearing about them), but most ... MOST have NO IDEA about herbal medicine! This is such a shame! essential oils (in the concentration and way they are made now) are a new "thing" whereas herbs have been used since the beginning of Creation.
Lost art of living!
First, they need Jesus.
