Garbery Moderation [22 Oct 2012|12:23pm]

Hi All,

Just your mod checking in. I posted quite a while back to see if anyone would be interested in moderating this community and recieved absolutely no response. I regret to inform you that if no one comes forward I will be shutting down the community as I am no longer active on Livejournal and don't want it to become a hotbed of spam.

Please reply here or message me through LJ if you'd be at all interested in taking over the community, I know several people find it useful and it would be unfortunate to have it dissapear.

Is anyone minding the store? [28 Aug 2012|11:34pm]

Because you should be aware, someone's posting stuff with a significant lack of garb. I'm unsubscribing.

New Pouches, Watch Pins, & Matching Earrings! [16 Jul 2012|09:41pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

I've just finished making a bunch of new pouches, watch pins, and matching earrings. My grandmother, mother, and I combined our efforts on the pouches, and it was a lot of fun to be crafty with my family!

All of the deluxe pouches have detachable shoulder straps as well as belt loops, and two pockets on the inside which will hold a cell phone and credit cards/money. Some of the watches were designed specifically to match the pouches, and most watches have earrings that match them exactly. If two or more items are purchased (pouch and watch, watch and earrings, or all three), I'll do free shipping.

Leather Corsets for Sale [21 Feb 2012|04:24pm]

In hopes to get some funding together for making sure our first couple of rescued ex-battery hens will have a great & safe garden area to roam in, a comfortable home, loads of yummy food and enough supplements or vet-care at hand to get them through the those difficult early stages I am selling a few corsets. Nut House Hen Rescue & Re-homing Centre are currently in the process of getting rescued chickens to new homes and we hope to provide a good one in the very near future :) If you are based on the island of Ireland and wish to give (or know someone that might be able to!) some of these girls a new home be sure to get into contact with the rescue centre :)

Seeking co-moderator [15 Feb 2011|12:11pm]

Hi everyone! It's your friendly completely absent moderator/community owner here!
I am wondering if any of you fine folks might be interested in co-moderating this community for me. I don't want to delete it since it seems to be helpful to many of you but have gone back to school and it is impossible for me to continue to maintain it.

Thank you very much to those of you who have emailed me regarding spammers in the community - I will do my best to keep on top of keeping those posts out of here and off your feeds.

If anyone would be interested in maintaining, moderating or taking over the community entirely please send me a message!

Thank you all and happy garbing!

Great Lakes, OH Ren. Faire 2010 vendors... [29 Jan 2011|11:59pm]

Can anyone tell me where I might find a list of the garb-vendors at the Great Lakes Ren. Faire this past year?

I'm looking for two in particular...
one is a small booth that sells alot of sheer pieces (tops, skirts, etc.) in which the material kind of looks like netting...they also sold some belly dance accessories. There was a lemonade-booth across the lane from them and they were further towards the back of the site.
-(sorry, I've only been there once so I can't recall exactly where everything was and I don't remember what else it was next to.)

The second is a larger booth and it wasn't too far from the jousting-field...this is a perm. structure. The vendor sold a variety of skirts, chemises, bodices, men's doublets, pants, etc. I think the leather boot vendor was a few buildings down to the left of this clothier vendor.

Anyone know the names of these vendors or how I might get in touch with them? I'd like to purchase some of their product soon, and I know I won't be back to that Faire anytime soon.

I tried looking for them at the official Faire website, but there doesn't appear to be a list of vendors, just a link to an application for vending. -Not helpful, unfortunately.:(

Thanks so much in advance!!

And, if it's ok: some shameless self-promotion...
If anyone has any Faire photos (from any year) that they'd like to share, I have a comm. waiting for you: rennies_nphotos

1490s Italian Renaissance Gown - For Sale [17 Jun 2009|08:16pm]


Hi Folks!  There comes a time in every costumer's life when they realize they have too many costumes, many of which they haven't worn for a long time, and that it's time to get rid of some.  This Italian gown didn't make it into the "stay" pile, so I've listed it on Etsy for $80.00 USD.  Link to Etsy:


Here's the description:

This gown is a beautiful costume made of gold patterned jacquard and cream-colored silky fabric. It is perfect for historical reenactment, costume parties, renaissance and medieval faires, or other special occassion.
Bust 34"
Waist 28"
Hip 36" +

The gown closes at the back with hooks and eyes at the waist, and lacings through grommets at top and bottom. The bodice is off-the-shoulder, and the straps have been added for ease of wear (not shown in above picture). The organza sleeves are set in, with the tube oversleeves tied at shoulder and elbow. The costume does not require period underpinnings.

This gown is washable! It has been worn once, cleaned, and refurbished.

This costume was made by a beginning seamstress, so while the exterior is exquisite, there is no interior finishing. The price has been adjusted to reflect this.

Colonial Civil War Medici style ballgown [02 Jun 2009|11:07pm]

fter much thought and consideration, I have decided to sell my ball gown. I used to be very active in Civil War Reenactments, and this was my labour of love.

The description...Collapse )

This is a one of a kind piece, hand-made with love and attention to detail. Don't settle for mass-manufactured ballgowns..go with something unique and beautiful as you are. My reserve is set at $200, which is a steal for such a gorgeous piece.
