stallholders, musicians & performers attending a medieval
you a stallholder and wish to attend a medieval festival but
are concerned about the cost of making your stall appropriately
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.

why not set yourself up to please the organisers rather than
have them unhappy and potentially replace your stall with something
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!)
