Shopping for leather at the Abbey Medieval Festival

Leather Maid

Hand crafted custom leather pieces made to order

I believe my pieces are so special because everything I do is with an eye for detail, use of the piece and customer requirements. I consider myself a master leather worker and have dedicated myself to making leather goods of exceptional design, quality, and durability. From archery quivers to scabbards and belts, I strive to create items that are not only beautiful to look at but are fit for purpose.

The Herbal Gardener

Natural skincare hand made on our certified property where we grow calendula, tranformed into oil.

All our products are hand made on our certified property.  We grow calendula flowers, a medicinal herb specialist for the skin.  We transformed the calendula into infused oil – a traditional herbalist process – which then enter into the formulation of all our products.

The property is certified Australian Demeter Bio-dynamic for 10 years now.  It is the strictest and oldest organic certification in the country.

Crowned Heart

Sellers of small wares: hats, hoods, purses, trims, veils, pretty trifles for courting gifts

Our accessories are mainly 14th and 15th century but we also make some items from earlier centuries – a 13th century pilgrim bag, or a Viking hood, for instance. I enjoy bringing items from manuscripts and museums back to life by recreating them and seeing them in use. It unites my passion for research with a life long interest in handsewing.

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.
