Ladies and Gentlemen! Boys and Girls! Step right up and welcome to the Carnivale! Immerse yourself in a world of splendor and delight, where things might be similar, but no two things are alike...

Inside our tented walls beyond our midway, a Grand Exhibition hall awaits with Merchants persuading you to stay. Baubles, trinkets, and jewelry for sale. Don't forget your gadgets and gizmos, guaranteed never to fail! Snake oil for the weak, the tired, the old. A cure for each, for a handsome price sold!

A few steps further on, your ears catch a voice. A Talker on the bally, presenting you with a choice. For one slim coin, 1/10th of a dollar, a Mercury dime...come see a world, past the rules and the forbidden line. Death defying stunts, Strong men, and Ladies on the highwire. For an extra dollar, see a Fakir survive a mouthful of fire!

With all of the wonders you have seen, we assure you that none of it was a dream. The lights flicker out as the music begins to fade. Beauty begins to disappear, natural and manmade. We thank you for this great premier, and look forward to seeing you the following year...

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.
