The Renaissance Hunt is in full swing until the end of this month with 82 stores participating. This is a must-do event for all of you medieval, Gorean and historical role-play enthusiasts. In fact a lot of the gifts work even for contemporary homes. All of the items in the hunt are free and every participating store has gifts for both men and women (or unisex)
You can get a list of SLURLs at the Historical Hunts blog where there are also pictures of some of the gifts posted. The hunt starts at Renaissance Faire Isle where the merchants have set up special displays of discounted and free items for the month of September. The Renaissance Faire itself has an additional “mini-hunt” with 20+ additional gifts hidden around the Faire in acorns (which are pretty tough to spot but worth the effort). For the main hunt itself you’ll be looking for little purple gargoyles.
I don’t have time to show you anywhere near all the hunt gifts out there, but here’s a sampling of what you’ll find. The elegant black chair is an embroidered medieval throne, the hunt gift from from Casa de Bebe. It’s sitting next to Shakespeare’s Desk, the hunt gift from Drow Science. This desk comes complete with quill pens, parchment and chair (the whole thing linked together is just 6PE – an added bonus to all you homeowners on a strict prim budget). The authentic Madonna with Child wall hanging in back is from Dragon Magick Wares
Here’s a closeup of one of the outfits you’ll find on this hunt. I’m wearing the men’s Renaissance Hunt prize from e*Sensual, which is a mesh outfit with a chain metal top and leather pants. There’s a nice female gift at this store also. My sturdy leather boots are the hunt prize from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes, and there are separate versions in the hunt gift for men and women. So hurry on out to the Renaissance Hunt for some great free gifts.
