Lady Carberry and the Peddlar
Quality homewares and woodwork, clothing and accessories (hats, shawls, scarves, bags) fine and costume jewellery, fabric and trimmings
Lady Carberry and the Peddlar are purveyors of high quality goods presented in an authentic medieval merchant bazaar setting.
Although originally frowned upon by noble and the clergy, society increasingly depended on merchants for the distribution of much needed goods and eventually they became people of great standing and importance within the community. The role of the merchant became even more important and entrenched in society during the thirteenth and the fourteenth centuries as nobility became richer and peasants were better placed to purchase goods.
