Like A Medieval Wardrobe Exploded
July 27, 2010 § 4 Comments
So in trying to keep up, encourage and thrive on the momentum that’s swirling around about getting back to my medieval business, I decided the first place to start was to take stock of my present inventory.
And as you can see from the picture, I also have enough bodices to costume an entire Shakespearan production.
Still, this nothing for the patterns, fabric, coordinating thread and various other tools of this trade that are also part of my vast inventory. Not too mention the sheer volume of miscellaneous feast gear and accessories that go along. (I’ll take more pictures later.)
So though my house is a mess right now, I am comfortable that I definitely don’t need to concern myself with start up costs.
The trick is now to figure out what exactly I’m going to do with all this stuff. I’m leaning towards scoping out flea markets and craft fairs to see about setting up shop somewhere to get started. It seems like a non-threatening way to get myself out there and get practice selling my wares.
I also have a list a mile long of repairs, hems and finishing touches to do on the costumes I already have and the website to rebuild.
My work is definitely cut out for me (a little sewing pun) but I’m really excited to get back at it.
