Merchant Information

Greetings from your 2023 Market Beadle!

Our village square needs merchants and those who can demonstrate SCA-period trades and crafts! Could this be you? Do you sell medieval-style goods, tools, or materials? Do you enjoy showing people your skills in woodwork, spinning, weaving, or metal work? We’d love to see you!

We will be located on Processional Way, so you know your booth will get much attention, and your presence will make the event even better. It’s a grass field and relatively level!

Cost: just your site fee!

If you are new to the SCA, you’ll want to know that we ask you to make an attempt at medieval clothing.

If this interests you, please send a note to August Investiture Merchant Registration: moc.liamg@gertnahcremiA

Please include your name, business name (if any), a way to contact you (email/phone), the footprint size of your booth/space, and a general idea of what you expect to sell or show.

See you there!
