Help Us Buy a New Tent!

Hello friends and visitors! We’ve had a great couple of years bringing our handmade goods to shows up and down the east coast. We’ve reached a little financial hurdle and are asking for your help.

It started in May, when we set up at the Virginia Renaissance Faire after days of pouring rain. Our gazebo tent sank into the mud and bent as the weeks went on. Parts of it are now broken and unusable.

Next weekend, more rain and mud. Did the best we could to keep it off our visitors.

Then, Steampunk World’s Fair in late May fought with both wind and rain. Our good easy-up canopy was one of the lucky ones, but it still bent in the bad weather. That tent lasted a couple more shows, then snapped while being set up at NoVa Pagan Pride Day.

Then, Harvest Faire in Newport News VA over the same weekend as Hurricane Matthew. The direct hurricane didn’t hit us, but even the edge winds were enough to completely mangle our all steel backup canopy.

Poor mangled tents… ours and the others on the site.

Harvest Faire showed us something else interesting. There were broken canopies scattered all over the site. Even new ones with thick poles were bent to unusable. Which ones were still completely intact, and all inventory – even blown glass – unharmed? The actual medieval style tents.

Well, we’ve been wanting to upgrade to a better tent for a while anyway, so this is the perfect time. Hence we are asking for your help! We are raising funds to buy a new, medieval reenactment tent.

Donate to our campaign and you can even get some cool custom stuff, so please take a look!  Any donation or share will be a big help.

Thanks!
