A classic Victorian event! Saturday, May 15th, at 9PM—A rich personage would ship a mummy from Egypt and then invite his friends to help unwrap it. You see, the Ancient Egyptians didn’t just wrap the mummy in plain cloth; Secreted away in the wrappings were perfumes, religious scriptures, trinkets, and jewelry—exotic prizes for guests to take home! As the guests take their turns unwrapping a bandage, they’ll uncover prizes. It could be anything: a coupon, a candy, a perfume sample, a pair of earrings, a tea bag sample. As prizes are unwrapped the donating company will be announced, and their business card or flyer can be on hand to give to interested parties.
We’ve already had dealers pledge to donate items to secret away in the bandages, but if you’d like to include some little treat for some other fair-goer to find, please contact me directly. I’ll need to know what you’re donating and it’s relative size. I should be able to get the prizes from you Saturday Morning for the Saturday Evening unwrapping. You should be able to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org—at the fair, look for the green-derbied bounty-hunter.
