Merchanting

  (Excerpt from Frequently Asked Question at www.sca.org)
   
Q: I'm a merchant interested in selling in the SCA. What do I do?
   
A: There is no global policy on merchanting, either for or against; this is handled
on a strictly local basis, and often case-by-case. You should certainly first attend
some events as a private individual, to understand how the SCA works. After that,
figure out some upcoming events that you would be interested in selling at, and
contact the autocrats of those events. Merchants may sell at events solely at the
discretion of the autocrat.
