I'm considering going to Constitution State feis this year and was curious about the state of the floors. I know it's a bit of an old fashioned feis, which isn't an issue, but knowing it's outdoors I'd like just a little more information--are they slippery or small, etc?

I noticed during multiple competitions sunday that parents were talking to the judges. The parents also belonged to O'Shea Chaplin. Anyone else see anything wrong with this. I don't think its fair that a parent from that school is talking with judges as their child is about to go on stages. Maybe I'm just been picky buy wanted to see what other people thought about this.

Hi everyone, so I was a feis vendor for about 10 years but gave it up a couple of years ago. I still have a lot of merchandise that I'd like to clear out. I'd like to sell in bulk at deeply discounted prices to other vendors or anyone who can use it. I am putting together a spread sheet of all the items, sizes, colors, and prices. Everything is ID related. I've got items like crowns, earrings, costume jewelry, kickpants, tee shirts, medal banners, ID dresses for American Girl dolls, and matching outfits for girls and their dolls. For some things I might have only a dozen or so items, but for others I might have two hundred. If you are interested in purchasing large lots, please let me know and I will email you a spread sheet or I can let you know about any particular items.

Premium quality Helen Doyle Irish Dance Dress Bag for sale. In excellent condition. A couple very minor scuffs on the exterior. 18-inch size bag is perfect for up to three dance dresses, whether for a young child or adult dancer. Perfect for feising! I was also able to use the bag, without any problems, as a carry-on when traveling domestically and internationally. Black with blue trim. Original price including international shipping (it is from New Zealand)) was $145 (fortunately, I did not incur a customs fee). I am offering bag for $75. Located in CT. Please leave a reply if you are interested and I can forward photos. Thx!
