Aine
Irish goddess of love and fertility. Daughter of Eogabail, who was in turn the foster-son of Manannan mac Lir. Later regarded as a fairy queen in County Limerick.

In mythological legend Aine was the Goddess who created abundance for all that grows upon the Earth; she feeds not only our body, but our soul with loveliness. She is goddess of prosperity, protector of women, animals and the environment, the essence of growth and source of the flower’s scent and grace.

It is said she would appear sometimes running magically as a red mare through the meadows at sunset. And she has appeared to many as “the lady of the lake.”

Many believe Aine assumed forms in Nature and took a number of mortal lovers, creating a magical race on Earth.

Needless to say, Aine is a Goddess whose intense beauty, femininity and sexuality was a threat to those who wished to wipe out the Celtic way of life.

In the time of cultural suppression Aine was transformed into “The Faery Queen” or “Queen of the Faeries.”

We know her most famously as Titiana in Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare.

She is celebrated on the Summer Solstice when torch lit processions may be held in her honor. She is praised in midsummer festivals in song and dance.

Our Blessing and Calling To the Goddess Aine

Touch the crown of my children’s head

So they will grow strong

Let your magic dust cover my lips

To attract my lover’s kiss

Stay the hand of he who would fell a tree

Let him discover instead, a way

He can work within

Your Faire garden

Steady the hand of one who plants seed

In his home, in the fields

Let the sound of your ecstasy fill the void

To the corners of the Earth

Let the pink rose blossom,

The fruit ripen on the tree

Ready for me to taste you

Feed the water of my soul’s delight

Join you in every budding flower

Awakening to the light

Touch me with the wisdom

Of each morning’s dew

Lift my face to the sun

Falling softly on my sweet skin

Opening for more

Blessings from Elven World

Alii Menehune
Menehune ‘alii’ Chief of the Little People. The aboriginal little people of long, long ago were called Menehune; Alii means highest: thus Alii Menehune.
Because Kaua’i is one of the oldest island in the Hawai’ian chain, and probably one of the first to be inhabited, a lot of the legends now told throughout the area may have originated here. For example, the volcano goddess Pele is said to have made Kaua’i her first home. She later moved to the Big Island where her work is still evident at the smoldering Mauna Loa volcano. Kauai is also said to be the first island inhabited by the mysterious menehune, a race of "little people" known for their nocturnal nature and ingenious constructions.

Angiaks
:(
Children of the living dead of Eskimo lore. In hard times, unwanted babies were taken out into the snow by tribal elders to die of exposure. Unless the tribe would move to a new hunting ground, they would often find themselves haunted by this small, miserable ghost.

Anjanas
Las Anjanas are typical faeries of Cantabria, there are small and nice females who sometimes appear to people like part human and part animal (usually, it's bird or fish, but it's not always fifty-fifty). Good-willing and peaceful, they can be found in woods, near small streams and that sort of quiet places.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
