How do I become a merchant?

If you did not merchant at the last Pennsic then you are a new merchant applicant.

Due to limited availability only a few new merchants will be accepted.

On a plain 8.5" X 11" sheet of paper provide the following:

Many times new merchant spaces become available just weeks before the war. Keep in mind you must have enough product to sell for the entire 10 day period.

For proper consideration in the new merchant review, a prospective merchant needs to include more than a business web address. Please include:

Mail the information to:

Merchant Office
Attn: New applicant
111 Currie Road
Slippery Rock, PA 16057

This information will be kept on file. The deadline for receiving new merchant information is May 1, 2018.

Merchants are categorized in one of three levels:

* SCA specific: Items that can be documented from 500 - 1650 AD
** SCA related: Items with an SCA context/theme

New merchant applicants selling at the Level 1 category will be considered most favorably followed by levels 2 then 3. Merchandise not falling in the three categories would be given the least consideration. The selection process occurs in May. If you are accepted then you will be notified by phone or email.
