stay to massage other customers' feet.
"Some' people even cut off their
nylons," one woman sang out, as she
held up her recently massaged leg,
nylon stocking severed at the knee.
"A lot of people don't know if we're
serious or not," Narowski said. "They
just burst out laughing."
Bringing a few laughs to the faces of
the Art Fair attenders seems to be a
concern of many exhibitors. "I like to
make people laugh," said caricaturist
Irv Tasco, who has peddled his
drawings all over the country. "They
(customers) usually don't laugh - they

- but I attempt to make them laugh."
MASTERMIMES, a collective of
about 20 St. Clair Shores High School
graduates wearing black leotards and
whiteface, has come to perform at the
fair for the first time, in hopes of
eliciting a few smiles.
"We enjoy doing this - this is sort of
a hobby," said mime Heidy Mohr.
"We've gotten laughs, and we like to.

Franz Harary, a two-year veteran of
the Art Fair, will be putting on a magic
show during the four-day event. The 16-
year-old Ann Arbor Pioneer High
School student said he will perform
about 40 shows during each day of the
fair, each show lasting approximately

Antique dealer John Gehman is
responsible for the silver-colored
oyster-cracker-shaped balloons that
have been bobbing above the heads of
the Art Fair crowds.
The balloons are monogrammed by
Gehman and his staff and are construc-
ted of polymer, a food-packaging
material. According to Gehman, his
product is more durable and retains
helium longer than ordinary balloons.
THE BALLOON seller, who lives in
Ann Arbor and distributes his product
all over the state, said business at the
fair has been excellent. "These are the
best things since sliced bread and
beer," he grinned, waving a balloon.
The vendor of another of the more
unusual Art Fair wares is New York
pipe carver Sandor Herskovitz. "The
things I sell, nobody else sells," said
Herskovitz, puffing on a wooden pipe in
the shape of a bare foot.
The artist's array of designs ranges
from an abstract, roughly-textured
wooden pipe to an intricate miniature
replica of Benedict Arnold's boot.
"I sell all over the country, and these
are the best handmade pipes in the
world, I think," Herskowitz paid. "The
