About Us

We have both loved collecting, creating, learning, exploring, and entertaining our entire lives.  Our shop has allowed us to pursue new dreams while we live the ones we've already built. 

Please stop in and meet us or one of our family members or friends.  Who knows?  You may even get to meet King Henry VIII!  

To see us as Henry VII & Elizabeth of York visit us August Bank Holiday weekend at England's largest Medieval Festival!
