Medieval Stallholder Help
Easy medieval clothing ideas for non-re-enactor
stallholders, musicians & performers attending a medieval festval.
you a stallholder and wish to attend a medieval festival but are concerned
about the cost of making your stall appropriately "medieval?"
You need clothes but you aren't a historical re-enactor (and don't want
to be.) and aren't sure where to start? These pages are for you!
You need appropriate clothes which
will look great, cost little, are machine washable and are functional
enough to work in for the duration of the event. Let's be honest, if
you plan to attend the festival every year, why not set yourself up
to please the organisers rather than have them unhappy (and potentially
replace your stall with something "better.")
These pages addresses your specific needs and answers some of the most
common questions about what to wear as a stallholder at a medieval tournament,
fayre or festival and covers some of the common misconceptions about
medieval clothing; remembering that you are a craftsman or
trademan at a marketplace and NOT a noble going to a court
banquet (which would require entirely different clothes altogether!)
