If it's the same traders every time, you might decide it's not worth going to the market because you already know who's going to be there and you know they won't have anything you want. I can only speak from a personal point of view as both trader and shopper but I find that most regular traders tr...

Any thoughts anyone? Can I call these handmade? I was erring on the side of caution and going to put 'made by me in Wales' rather than 'handmade' on the lable, but dithering a bit now. Yes yo can Sally as there is a difference between "Hand Made" and "Hand Knit" Going back to pricing.. when you buy...

Sally, very practical and almost certain to go down well with re-enactors and MOP's alike.. we all know how it can turn chilly in the evenings even at the height of summer.. I would suggest a price break of around £23.50... £26.50 something like that.. buyers are more often than not drawn to a price...

A linen sideless surcoat would go over quite nicely - edged in a contrasting colour - I think that is the way I am going to go this year - I find houppelandes just too cumbersome - and tight belts and heat don'timx where I am concerned - I may look into just a barbette this year as an easy option b...

The chances of anybody wearing a linen kirtle outdoors, with only a linen chemise under it, and no top layer would be relatively minimal - not to mention the 'decency aspect'. but as I did say, it's not a huge problem, and is very common, but knowing British re-enactors in general like I do, there ...

The Purple Peril may reply but I know she prefers a full wimple and kerchief arrangement because it hides all the hair and the ears so she can leave her piercings in and it dosen't matter what colour her hair is that week. :D Like this http://www.astoft.co.uk/Dscn2592-u1-540-u0.4-q60.jpg I am sure ...

Thanks for all the advise there's alot to mull over... As I am not a re-enactor ( a mere Trader) we do try to be as authentic in our dress and tentage as possible.. I wore only a headdress last year over my wig.. I have really short gothly-dyed black hair which doesn't really look the part.. I will ...

Its about right for first class post - I do charge 10% postage and packing on the garments I make but the fabric is heavy and they are all packed in boxes to protect them. Cheryl Shadowlight Designs I guess it depends on the weight of the garment.. I ship my corsets Royal Mail Special delivery and ...

I get so hot in wool though and my partner is also slightly alergic to wool so generally starts the season with antihistamines till he aclimatises :) Do you have a website? and d...
