Faerie Clothes

Faerie Folk are very fussy about their clothing, preferring the beautiful and costly. If a Faerie is robbed of his clothing he is doomed to remain captive in the human world until he recovers it. Red and green are the favoured colors for faerie clothing symbolizing the power of Nature. Red is the color of blood and death, green is the color of vegetation.

Human clothes can be used as a weapon to break Faerie Enchantment.
•If you are being troubled by faeries while out walking take off your coat and turn it inside out, thus distracting the Faeries long enough to escape.
•If Faeries are disturbing your sleep at night place your shoes by the bed with the toes pointing outward and put your socks beneath them.
•A glove thrown into a Faerie Ring will stop all the revelry.

Faerie Music and Language

Faeries love music most of all and gifted musicians may be spirited away to Fairyland. There are pieces of music in existence that are said to be of Faerie origin such as Londonderry Air and the Fairy Dance of Scotland.

Londonderry Air: The original music is the tune to the modern "Danny Boy

Would God I were the tender apple blossom

That floats and falls from off the twisted bough

To lie and faint within your silken bosom

Within your silken bosom as that does now.

Or would I were a little burnish'd apple

For you to pluck me, gliding by so cold

While sun and shade you robe of lawn will dapple

Your robe of lawn, and you hair's spun gold

Yea, would to God I were among the roses

That lean to kiss you as you float between

While on the lowest branch a bud uncloses

A bud uncloses, to touch you, queen.

Nay, since you will not love, would I were growing

A happy daisy, in the garden path

That so your silver foot might press me going

Might press me going even unto death.

When you wander in the wild places of Nature listen for snatches of Faerie music wafted on the breeze.

Faerie speech can be indistinct and incomprehensible, difficulty understanding Faeries may be caused by our rational mind getting in the way. Some Faeries speak wordlessly, and others us the language of the land to which they are attached.

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.
