Trinkets You Can’t Live Without At The Grandstand

FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (WCCO) — If you’re heading to the State Fair, the Grandstand is always a must stop. You’ll find hundreds of vendors selling everything from clothing, to household items, to musical instruments.

The Grandstand is just a fun stop because it’s entertaining to see what people come up with.

This is where they try to sell their great invention and people buy into it.

You never know what you’ll find inside the Grandstand —
Trinkets you never know you wanted but suddenly can’t live without.

Haven’t we all faced this dilemma while carrying a drink? Car keys in one hand, cell phone in the other? Problem solved with Cup GO GO.

Who needs a jean pocket when you have the Hip Klip. Three years at the State Fair and the demand keeps growing.

If you’re looking for a permanent keepsake of the fair, how about putting your name in stone?

Sift through 7,000 different rocks to find a unique plaque.

Still, the Grandstand offers more than the latest invention — it’s a place of self discovery.

The name analysis machine can pinpoint your personality with just a simple signature.

Booth workers explain it’s looking at how hard you write your points and curves and then it’s pulling characteristics based off that.

It’s $3 for 85 percent accuracy — at the very least, it’s cheap entertainment.
