About

Palace Gallery is a three generation family owned and operated company that has been in business for 28 years as a website and by traveling to SCA events under the name of Gipsy Peddler. Family members have served in all capacities to make this a unique profession for a couple of us.

My daughter and I design, make and sell Italian Renaissance Clothing and Accessories to historical re-enactors and professional performers. We specialize in list-legal SCA rapier armor which is sold under the name of Gipsy Peddler, the oldest division of our company.

Our products have appeared in weddings, theatrical productions, Renaissance fairs and music festivals. We even have a rosary in a museum exhibit in the Netherlands!

Due to an accident in 2012, we are no longer traveling to events. Maybe that will change when the great-grandchildren are a little older and the younger generation takes over that aspect of the business.

As a result of limited exposure, we have opened this Etsy shop, not only to offer our regular fare but also as a way to reduce our stock of items that are being discontinued and are on clearance. We have lots of vintage pieces that have been in storage or on display!

When our family joined the SCA in 1990, I was drawn to the Arts and Science portion of the society and I have the privilege of being a Laurel for my work in Renaissance Dress Accessories and have taught many classes on the wide range of items this general category covers.

Making accessories became a natural evolution in my research and desire to make an accurate period ensemble because many of the items needed just were not available, especially things like "fleafurs" and "flag fans" so I decided to make them myself.

When the family got involved in the heavy fighting and rapier community, we started designing our armor for those activities as well. At one time, we had 3 generations of fighters!

All this research and knowledge, morphed into a business and I started merchanting within a year of joining the SCA. Then, about 10 years ago, jewelry became my focus and has grown into a separate entity. I have also just started a website called Jagwire Jewelry (and another Esty store!) which has the jewelry that doesn't fit into the historical aspect of our business except for a few pieces in the New World Treasures and Ancient Echoes - Egyptian sections.

Last year, my granddaughter joined the office staff as a general assistant, plus shipping clerk, photographer and bookkeeper. She is also a crafts person, specializing in 17th - 19th century headwear and cockades, which has greatly expanded our customer base. She has been making bicorne and tricorne pirate hats for Disney Cruise Lines!

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