I'm sure a lot of you have already seen the new site -- I've hardly been keeping it secret since I launched it last Thursday! But for those of you who haven't, well, here it is, and do please take a moment to look around. Because oh, my beloveds, it is truly a thing of wonder and beauty.

Check out the logo at the top. It's new. Isn't it gorgeous?

Hover over it. See how the leaves change colour? Yeah, Dani made it do that. Not only that, but the green? Is from a photo I took of my own basil plant, right here in my front window.

And I keep noticing details like that. They're all over. It is, simply, the perfect website. (And if you want one just as perfect, hie yourself over to Dani's new site, Life Unconstrained, and have a talk with her.)

And to go with it -- new labels, fresh of the presses, with the same lovely kraft paper background as the new site (and this newsletter). I'm gonna be busy peeling old labels off and replacing them with new ones -- and then taking new pictures of everything -- but it'll be worth it. Everything looks so, so good.

To go with this, I've started a new Facebook page, and changed my Twitter handle -- so if you're following me, there are new places to go. I'm hoping you'll all be along for the ride!

With all of this going on, I have the first news about the improved products I promised you last month. My soaps are now all vegan, made with rich, moisturizing shea butter. Just as smooth, just as good for your skin, but now even better for the environment! Check em out here.

I've also replaced the coconut butter in my bath oils with shea butter. Coconut butter's nice, but shea butter is even better, and your skin will feel the difference.

Welcome to Om Shanti Naturals!

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.
