I sure do I include aspirin (well for me it is Advil); Di-gel (or other anti-acid); anti diaheria medicine; anti-itch cream; lip balm; hand cream; band aids; antiseptic cream; tweezers (for those splinters you know); cough drops or throat lozenges; fingernail file or emery board; needle and thread for emergency clothing repair; allergy tablets. That's all I can remember right now and I'm sure you all have additions as well...let us hear from you.

I just don't like buying from booths where the people aren't smiling and pleasant.

You mean you keep the "spare" smiles

and cheek splints in the medicine chest for when that "one" customer dances on the last nerve? Yep, that's right next to the Excedrin, Immodium, Zantac, and BANDAIDS!!! karen

How true Margie! And I know it gets hard to keep that smile on your face around 2 in the afternoon!!

You know, I don't take a kit with me - but will from now on! Guess I have never thought of it before. I do try to remember to take along a box of "wet wipes" - not only for my use, but quite often there ends up with a little kid standing by the booth just covered in food (or mud, or other stuff). The mother is looking all over for a paper towel. The wipes come in real handy to offer to them! Theresa

Theresa I remembered those after I went to bed last nite I always keep a package of the wet wipe refills ( you know the ones in the zip lock bags) in the ice chest in the summer. I also keep a roll of paper towels in my box w/the plastic bags....thanks for reminding me of those . sharon

Re: you are right Froggie but I don't keep

that one in the medicine kit I keep it on my face guess it doesn't hurt to have a spare stuck back there in the kit though, now does it Thanks .sharon

Yeah, you need a couple stashed away
