Newest Updates

Well, it has been about 9 months since I have posted ANYTHING. What with our move to the Farm (our first home buy), things have been very busy. We have updated the website to reflect new pieces, and restocked items like Henry II and others. We continued to have sales in abundance, though often enough from our Facebook presence. And many of our special or commission orders coming from folks that have dwelt with us in the past. We try hard to make good on things for everyone that asks or orders from us. Occasionally we make a mistake, but we extend every effort to make your dreams come true. Two of those most recent endeavors led to us going over the timeline required, so we had to rush things out with expedited shipping. This is not a inexpensive thing to do. FedEx is not kind in that regard, but they do help in a pinch to get it there. Which we did. I am always willing to absorb the costs associated with an error on my part. If anything I hope it demonstrates the lengths we are will to go to to make amends. As always our general motto is if we can’t fix it we will refund it! Living in the country now affords me time to decompress from the work load easier. And adds considerably to our freedom of mind to be more artistically creative. As we have said before we have a line-up of projects we are creating. But we are always willing to consider something new. Don’t see what you want, just ask. Though we occasionally get behind, and sometimes have to deal with our sole helper getting under the weather and missing a few days, we always seem to manage to get the job done. We don’t like to disappoint anyone. You can always send us an email and ask questions, we will reply promptly, and sort out anything that is wrong.

In other news we have enlisted a long time friend and artist to help us create some new items, more on that new team member later. One of our goals is to finally offer the much discussed Viking folding scales. I think we are getting very close now to getting this produced. We are also looking at some Migration era medallions, and some smaller jewelry items. As well as some personal items like keys, and cloak pins. These are a request from the Irish School of Archaeology. Sales for these items should start in a few months once we have delivered what they require. Finally, we will be introducing more coins types as we get to them. In the line up are French, Scottish, Byzantine, and English “gold coins”, as well as some additional Dark Age coins like the piece for Offa King of Mercia, which was added this morning. And some general Medieval pieces like the Prague Groschen, and a renewed issue of the Venetian Ducat. There is much to do yet and the year is still young. Best to you all.
