A Market Day at Birka
Manchester, NH
January, 2010

"Wait; who agreed to not have you murdered?" *

Haus Wanderstamm, in collaboration with Broake & Thumb Studios, raised $455 at Birka for the Royal's Travel Fund by selling t-shirts handsomely emblazoned with "MASTER JULIEN AND MISTRESS CAROLYNE FOR KING AND QUEEN IN A.S. XLV".  And every one of the Nobles, notables, and good people whom that effort tweaked, irked, or otherwise stepped on were then obliged to applaud when we presented the monies that evening at Royal Court.  How diabolical is that!

My Thanks to Everyone who bought a shirt; the members of Haus Wanderstamm who encouraged this effort and donated the materials; Lady Ameline Bernaerds of Broake & Thumb Studios for volunteering her time in making the shirts and selling them out of her booth; Master Julien and Princess MISTRESS Carolyne for going along with our unasked-for and most un-politic campaign, and Princess Marguerite ingen Lachlainn for eventually agreeing to not murder us dead over it.
