Re: Alchemist Re-enactor Project

JW, to answer your question, there are no chemicals that can be mixed that would do this so I think it's more likely to be a trick centered around the containers themselves, with secret compartments for example. Did you have a good look at the containers? In the case of the Royal Institute Christma...

Re: How Rude!!!

There's hardly a trade fare goes by without someone asking me how I get the curve in the shields, how do I do this, how do I do that, where do I get my raw materials from etc etc.

I just tell them "trade secret!"

Re: how much stock do you take to fairs?

Trust me ... no matter how many markets you do you will never have enough
of one thing but always too many of another!

No 2 markets are the same and the same market the next year will have a
completely different ratio!

My trading tent is fine on hard standing, but would need to have weights to hold the guys if there was a strong breeze. Would anyone be able to provide the weights (as at Stockport where the stalls were weighted down)? Otherwise, maybe I should invest in some. Have you considered plastic 25 litre w...

It's been a failing of EH for decades Dave They are hopeless at promoting their own events Many times in the past I would do a site visit to check things out when my society was doing an event for them and find no publicity and no plans for any.
