Subject: [SCA Newcomers] Thank you for the feast gear info & I think we are
getting the other tent...
After reading the few comments it seems that all I need for now is to get bowls,
keep my oval plates and then get more mugs since the boys have outgrown their
tiny ones. At the last event we attended, they used the small ones and I used a
hand-made mug that I woried about the whole weekend, afraid it would get broken.
(My metal one I loaned out to my husband's friend who was with us.)
As for the tents, I have been keeping space allotments in mind and the tent that
we are going to get is a small a-frame tent for my youngest son. The seller also
told me he had a Sometimes it really pays off to live in an area where Civil War
reenactment is popular.
I think we are well on our way and hopefully we will be able to get to work on
the camp furniture once tax time rolls around.
I also have a box of free fabric that I will be pickin up on Monday, which is a
huge help for getting the garb together.
We are new, but my husband and I want to blend in and also have a period look as
much as possible to add to the atmosphere when we attend events.
