*NEW – Bacon Aprons!
What’s this?! An entire apron, made from bacon? Modern 21st century textile technology makes it possible. The apron is actually made from fabric, but that doesn’t mean you won’t look awesome cooking up a fresh pound of Black Label on a Saturday morning in your own kitchen. You can only get this custom garment at, you guessed it, BACONFEST! So get your tickets now, and bring some extra clams to pick up one of these limited edition kitchen garments.
