Two Fairs at Once!

We are in our busiest time of the year. We have booths open at both the Bristol Renaissance Fair and the Minnesota Renaissance Festival starting Saturday through Labor Day. It is a flurry of activity as we are working hard in the shop all week to fulfill orders and get some stock sorted for the shows and then working some of the weekend to sell and demonstrate.

We hope you will have a chance to visit us at one of the shows and check out our items. The atmosphere at a fair is great fun and there is much to do for folks even if they are not into swords, well at least I've heard there are people like that. Make sure to check out our Ren Faire Survival Guide to get the most out of your day.


One thing we ask is that you check out the parking, especially for the MN show! It is all pre-purchase online if you drive to the site and expect to park. (details here)

If you just show up to go to the fair and do not have the pass it will be $30.00 to park. We do not want our patrons to be surprised by this and disappointed before they even get out of their car.

Here is a news story with additional info

Don't get surprised!

When you do get to the booth we will have a variety of axes, maces, spears, daggers and swords to check out and enjoy.


We look forward to seeing you at the show!
