We, the admin, are doing a lot to improve your experience on site and we have a ton of stuff in the works.

Looking Up!

2011 is already looking far better. Thank the heavens that December is done and gone. Things seem to be moving along nicely here at the Hearth. New features you guys should be looking forward to:

  • Site-wide chat service!
  • Translator (already here!) in the top right corner of the page.
  • Group tabs- groups organized into tabs so you won't be searching through 100+ groups.
  • New text edit buttons (already here!)

If you have questions about any of…

Staying above water...

Just staying above water for now.

This December has been up and down, but mostly down and Mercury Retro is living up to its potential. I lost a family member earlier this month rather suddenly and unexpectedly. On the other hand, we now have family home for the holidays. Its bittersweet and the house is busy. I am not in a financial position to do Christmas shopping for anyone. I did pick up a box of Holiday cards so I think almost everyone is covered in that department.

Good to be Back!

Well, I'm happy to be back from my October travels and all caught up! Glad to see the site is buzzing with activity!
Tons of updates have been going on. If you haven't already noticed, the profile questions have been updated as well. Some of you may need to go back and revise your answers accordingly.
There have been talks about a monthly newsletter which I am very excited about. I think it will be an awesome addition for those that don't appreciate daily site…

Mary Poppins' Bag

Yes, its like the Mary Poppins' Bag of never-ending projects.

Our Thursday night meeting was relatively small but still very productive. I have a page of notes on improvements and expectations.

In a nutshell

-Get the inventory up to speed.

-Get our artisans in a row.

-Invite and make welcome.

The Facebook fanpage is in slightly better standing though the Facebook staff could stand to communicate more. If you are a facebook user, please stop in and say hi! I am very… Continue

Yes, progress has been made and can be seen! I believe I am well on my way to conquering the beast we lovingly refer to as The Castle Life Department. I've also taken the reigns of the Facebook fanpage. I hope to see you all there as well!

Once Mercury relieves my computer I will be tackling graphics, logos and all that fun stuff. I have been learning CSS and I even joined a ning group all about...CSS! I have been ninja-ing around, tweeking here and there for the sake of legibility.

So,… Continue

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.
