We spent time taking the little man on the rides and lounging on the grass eating food from the many local restaurant vendors. When we did venture down to the arts and crafts vendors we did find some great items, despite the massive crowding.
Roy finally replaced his old wallet with a nice new handmade leather one from a great vendor selling all leather goods. His wallets have to be extra durable since he is so hard on them, and this one seemed well stitched and finished. He has had no complaints so far.

The vendor was Wood Duflo and they make handmade hardwood kitchen implements from reclaimed wood. Their website describes the process in great detail and lists a variety of wood types and how to care for the finished product properly. They use FDA approved food-safe clear finishing oil to protect the wood.

Looking at all of their items, each one is totally unique and I had no doubt that the statement made the woman manning the booth was correct - "this spoon will last you the rest of your life." A durable and well crafted product that I can definitely see passing down to my daughter some day.
