With 3 generations involved in the SCA rapier fighting, we started a family business making list-legal rapier armor because it was hard to find 25 years ago. We sold it at SCA events under the name of Gipsy Peddler. Now we will be merging the 2 businesses into one with a more mobile friendly website at www.palacegallery.biz.

We hope you enjoy our products as much as we love researching and making them!

Our websites are:
http://www.palacegallery.net
http://www.gipsypeddler.com
http://www.palacegallery.biz

NOTE: palacegallery.net and gipsypeddler.com will be merging early in 2018 with www.palacegallery.biz
