carrying out spells and wishes. The medicine bag, also called power pouch or
sachet, often includes special feathers which have meaning to the wearer and
help attracting good luck as well as driving away bad things. Feathers are

the element of air. This makes them good communication helpers. But each
feather also can hold other special powers; depending on the bird it came
from, its color and place of discovery and other factors. The knowledge what
kind of feather is best used for what kind of indent can only be found out
for oneself by trial and error.

A pigeon feather is not as helpful for creating a defense strategy than a
feather taken from a bird of prey. The general rule for future feather
magicians is always to use self found feathers rather than bought ones. A
shop cannot substitute a walk in nature, nor the joy when the wanted feather
is finally found. Feathers are often used to focus concentration in spells
Feathers used for magical undertakings are mainly determined by the energy
which is brought into the feather by the magician him/herself through
concentration and thought. Beside from the energy the magician brings into
the object, feathers hold certain natural abilities.

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.
