March has arrived and with it, the gentle coolness of Autumn – a welcome relief from the intense heat of last summer! We have had restocks of pewter ware such as spoons, needle cases and pilgrims mirrors. New period games and game aids including leather chequered game boards. We also have a new jewel from Steve Millingham of the infamous ‘B’ letter worn by Ann Boelyn strung on a beautiful strand of fresh water pearls, ready to wear.
Feast day for March ; Continuing on in our monthly series of important celebratory dates in the Medieval Calendar is the Solemnity of the Annunciation. The principle feast celebrating Mary, this was a date of enormous importance particularly during the Age of Chivalry – cf our latest blog post for more information.
Mainly Medievals next event is Rowany festival, held in Mittagong, New South Wales over the Easter weekend. For those who would like to order items for pickup at Rowany Festival, please have your order in by the 31st of March . Unfortunately, we will only be able to attend the Saturday Market day with a select amount of stock so If there is anything you would particularly like us to bring, please let us know before hand and we will do our best to bring it along.
Until next time, we bid you good reading!
