cardinal rule on loaner items is that they should be just barely

wearer's legs because every single strap has blown out.)
With SCA membership fees not currently covering existing publishing
costs, where does the money come from for all these publications and
authentic loaner items?
Just some things to consider.

I'm considering doing this because my laurel is a German who was shipped to
England at a young age in an agreement for his apprenticeship to a jeweler
and painter and his wife is English all the way. I just thought it would
be cool if I surprised them by doing a persona shift to their island for an
outfit or two. *grin*
