Once there lived two cousins who lived together. Both had wives and each had one son. One morning, one man's child became sick and was not sick for very long before he died. The man's heart felt very sore when his child died, but he finally dug a grave for it. For an entire day he did not eat but rather watched his child's corpse. After four days he left to visit his cousin.

   "What is your opinion, my cousin, concerning my dead child: suppose he should come back here in five days?" In this way did he speak.

   "No, my cousin. You should resume eating and become well again." In this way did he reply.

   And the other man said nothing to him, for he was thinking in his mind one thing and one thing only: "I will surely get even with you ."

   Not long afterwards, the child of the second man became sick and did not ail for very long before he died. The man's heart was very sore when his boy died, so he said that he wanted his boy to come back to him and went to his cousin.

   "My cousin, it will be very good if our two children should come back to us after five days." In this way did he speak to his neighbor.

   "Not so, my cousin. You should resume eating until you feel well again." In this way did the other man reply."I very much desired that our two children should come back to us, but you didn't want it this way at first. Therefore, people will always die but will never come back, because you didn't want it this way. You told me, 'It is well if they do not come back.'" This he was thinking in his mind.

   And so he felt very good telling him this. People would have always come back after five days if he had agreed to this at first. It would have been very good if anybody who died would always come back after five days.

   Now it ends. In this way was the story told in the beginning.

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.
