They say if you hold onto an outfit long enough, it'll come back in style. Here's some of the antique chic people were working at the Excalibur Medieval Festival and Market Faire this past weekend. Two Ren fair runways are on for this Saturday, Oct. 4 and Sunday, Oct. 5 with the Excalibur festival at Mad River Community Hospital and the Medieval Festival of Courage at Christie's Pumpkin Patch, so suit up.
