WEST ALLIS (WITI) -- Since she was just four years old, Rose Pipkorn has been going to the Wisconsin State Fair -- and every year she always makes sure she brings home a keepsake.

"I own everything they have," said Pipkorn as she laughed.

Decked out in her favorite shirt...

"It's my State Fair official shirt I wear to the fair," said Pipkorn.

Pipkorn begins hunting for her newest addition to her collection, and she has plenty of options from ornaments, to post cards, to fanny packs.

"The fanny pack is back. I don't know how to explain it but yea that's a style that has come back. The State Fair is a party so that's why we put party on the fanny pack," said TSMGI Vice President Dan Elias.

The mason jar sippy cup has also been a big hit this year.

"You're at the fair you're enjoying your beverage you want to keep it colder longer, the mason jars are insulated and they have a handle," said Elias.

And of course, the y-shirts.

"The "Milk it" shirt is really popular. It was our best seller yesterday opening day. Milk it for all it's worth," said Elias.

"I kind of like that one with the yellow one the cow, you know holy cow. That one," said Pipkorn.

Although Pipkorn's day at the fair has just begun, there's no doubt she'll be back to buy again next year.

"I absolutely love our fair," said Pipkorn.
