Small Market in Michel Delving on Sep. 5+6

Although we in the Shire enjoy peaceful times, young hobbits are sometimes feeling a bit adventurous, and their first journey tends to bring them to Michel Delving, often with little more than the shirt on their back and a few coins in their pocket. Now Postmaster Proudfoot is certainly happy to have the additional help, and our Second Shirriff, Master Bodo Bunce, always says that many a fine Bounder has come from these young ones. But it takes more than a shirt and trousers of rough cloth on your body and ma's kitchen knife in your hand to deal with the pesky shrews and aggressive boars around Michel Delving. 

So some of the residents of Michel Delving, Waymeet, and the Southfarthing skilled in various crafts have decided to come together and make clothes and armour, weapons, food rations, dyes, useful trinkets, and other things that young hobbits not yet past their tweens might find useful, and to organise a market in Michel Delving to sell them. Miss Lina has kindly agreed to provide musical entertainment, so do drop by, be it to look at the wares, or to listen to the music, or simply for a chat.

Date: September 5th and 6th (monday and tuesday)
Time: 8 pm (20:00 BST, 15:00 /servertime)
Duration: 1 hour
Location: The market stalls at Michel Delving Square
