Welcome to SCA Shopping Made Easy

The merchants you love in one place, because community means we are better together.

Merchant of the Week:

Plasticsmith Armoury

What is your shop about? What kind of goods do you have and what makes you unique? Also, how should people best contact you?

I make quality, lightweight, high density polyethylene armour for use in SCA combat. My gear is durable, maintenance-free, and works well under clothing or covered in period materials. I offer bulk pricing for group orders, so feel free to contact us via the web site or Facebook.

 

 How long have you been a part of the SCA?

I’ve been in the SCA since 1989.

What unusual item needs to be on everyone’s packing list?

Every camp needs a blender, for blender drinks!

What is your favorite memory of something that happened at an event?

I’ve been fortunate enough to attend Pennsic as sitting royalty, along with the largest contingent ever to attend Pennsic from my kingdom. It was wonderful

Which event is your favorite every year and why?

I love Avacal’s Quad War. It has been going since 1995, and it just feels like home

What is the best short advice you have for any new members? 

Everyone will have advice for you, and it can be a little overwhelming. If that happens, take a step back and just enjoy the atmosphere. When you’re ready, try all the things, and you are sure to find your passion.

During the 5th “HOLD!” in the august heat of a Pennsic field battle you’ll be grateful your armor is nice and light. And when they shout “LAY ON” and you were 3 feet deep into enemy lines, having broken through as they called hold and been eyed by everyone around you for the last two minutes, you’ll be grateful it’s really durable, strong armor. 

*We don’t give out prizes but so far this submission wins first place for “what unique item should everyone bring” by popular vote on the Merchant Mall team.
