Updates for 2015 Rowany Festival!


Welcome to the newly updated Merchant’s Page!

Festival is now a mere two weeks away (ok it is actually 10 weeks, but it always seems closer). If you would like to merchant this year,

It seems that this year you will be able to purchase a wide range of items which will cover not only you, but your interests too. Fabric, trims, toys, jewellery, gems, books, armour, feastware – it truly seems that you can walk in one end of merchants row in mundane wear and walk out the other end a fully equiped medievalist!

Please note, the details in the tables below are current as at 26January, and may be subject to change. If you are missing from these tables or have more information to provide (or I’ve made a mistake and left something out!), please contact me ASAP at

Who are they? What are the wonderful things they are bringing? Where can I get a sneak peek at their fabulous wares?
Emlyn’s Adornments Craft affordable, attractive SCA accessories and jewellery from a mixture of recycled and re purposed materials and goods. From hats, hoods and veils to jewels and brooches, we will provide the perfect finishing touches to your garb. We also craft personalised heraldic parasols and take orders for personalised items of all kinds. Our prices are fair and our craftsmanship superb.

So go on. Adorn Thy Self.

Who are they? What are the wonderful things they are bringing? Where can I get a sneak peek at their fabulous wares?
Suzanne Tate/Arganhell merch Briuc
Maelmuire ingen Alpin ‘Maelmuire’s Big Rocks’ will be selling jewellery, stone pendants and loose cabochons, all hand-made by myself. After much dabbling in various arts I have decided to make it my mission to ‘bring the bling’, as it were.


Baroness Tasia del Valente Trims and braid, clasps and jewels, snoods and an assortment of other accessorizing baubles for your re-enactment experience.
Padraig Lowther. Will be selling buttons, plumes, pearls and sundry wares from my discount table of wonders as usual.
Morgaine Grey Selling leather and leather goods, teaching leather carving and sewing.

In addition to the above, there are two essential Festival services that also need to be mentioned:

Throughout the Festival Greasispoone will be providing meals, and there are various prices and options available:

And last, but by no means least, The Salty Bint Tavern. It’s where you will always find drink, entertainment and companionship, and various traditional festival events, such as the Fighter Auction.

So I see you reading this and thinking “hmm, I really should make that merchant booking now”.

Yes, yes, you really need to make that booking now! We are really running out of time, and merchant’s row is getting full.

Permanent merchant sites cost $30 (in addition to entry fee, bookings via the Rowany Festival booking site), however the Saturday Market are $5 a stall and $5 per additional hire table.

For those who wish to sell food at Festival you will need to have a HACCP certificate,and must also notify the NSW Food Authority.

Just a reminder that if you do not have a certificate for safe food handling and a copy of the notification confirmation with you, you will not be allowed to sell food.

You can notify the NSW Food Authority via the link below:

Thinking of selling some goods at the Saturday market but not sure that you have enough for a full table? There are a couple of people in the same position. Please email me at as there may be some scope for setting up a combined stall if we get enough people interested in putting a few bits together (and please let me know if you’re interested in volunteering to be the person running it).

As with all, if you have any queries, please contact myself at, yes, that email again:
