Chicago Celtic festival
I've always enjoyed reading about Celtic mythology and history. My novel (out to agents now) borrows from Celtic legend in a few places: names, creatures, flora and fauna. This means I never miss the Celtic Festival every September in Chicago. It was here again this past weekend and I went down to check it out.
One thing I had to do there was replace a ring I bought the year before from a vendor called Sean's Celtic Creations. It was a Tree of Life ring. Unfortunately, I took my old one off once when I washed my hands in Baltimore Washington International Airport and left it on the sink.
Right now, a custodian somewhere is wearing a very cool ring.
Or some businessman.
So I ventured down to get the new ring and see the sights. Fortunately, I found the vendor. Once I saw the sign for his booth the name clicked. Sure enough, I found the same ring!
I also saw a lot of fun stuff but I didn't get many good pics because I only had my camera phone.
