I am doing recordings for amusement venues

Step Right Up ...

On the inside of this here tent is the most fascinating  collections of oddities you will ever lay eyes on. Or maybe you have heard Its Ninety Three Inches Long and It’s Hiss can be heard twenty feet away. It’s the largest crawling reptile you ever see and it is here at your fair right now so  come and see for yourself why it’s a man eater. If any of these…

Holy Crap, it's been Three Years (also, a sale.)

My Loiosh is three years old today. Can we get a rousing Happy Birthday?

He's chowing down on gooshyfood, and I'll be getting him salmon later today, too.

I'm having a one-day sale in honour of his birthday -- enter coupon code LoioshBirthday and you'll save 25% off. Just for today though!

I can't believe it's been three… Continue

There are a lot of ebooks out there these days, and I've been reading my fair share. Some of them don't do a lot for me, many of them do; and one of them inspired this post.

Read here to find out what I learned about my… Continue

Annessence, Unlock the Magick, of Gaia's Green Earth

 The women in my family have always turned to nature when in need of healing. These secrets have been pasted down for untold generations.

Samson, 1998-2011

I never did post about him much, because he just wasn't as photogenic as Loiosh or as loving as Chocolate. In fact, he hated all humanity and barely tolerated me. But I loved him, and he was as sweet as his nature allowed him to be.

I let Samson go today. It wouldn't have been a kindness to make him stay longer and he wasn't getting any better. But I don't want to talk about his death; I want to talk about his life.

I called him Samson Hatesyouall because, well, he did. He… Continue

It's the little things...

I withdrew some money from my new bank last week -- usually I use the ATM, but I needed a pair of tens, not a twenty, so I went through the drive through.

As usual, my cash showed up in one of those little paper envelopes they use. A waste of paper for something that's just going to get thrown away or at best recycled, but I get why they don't want to send cash through the tubes without… Continue

It's something we all need, and it's something we don't get enough of.

I've been getting a lot of downtime recently. The day after my last post, I got up at about 9:30...and then, almost on a whim, climbed back into bed and snuggled my Chocolate-kitty for about two hours.

I mean, who could resist that face?

Downtime is important --… 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.
