About Us/ Contact

In 2004 Gemini started a small company called Adventurer’s Mart whose ethos was to provide quality costume and props for the L.A.R.P. market. After trading at numerous events Adventurer’s Mart was renamed in 2014 and became Gem’s Trading Co, shortly after the renaming Barry joined the company launching the brand Locke‘n’Lode and introduced beautiful hand dyed leatherwork to Gem’s Trading Co’s already extensive range of products.

To this day Gemini and Barry design and make all manner of character cloth costume and leather work and props. All custom-made pieces are unique and in most cases lovingly hand made in the U.K. We also sell a vast range of products produced by U.K. crafters within the hobby that have all been carefully chosen for their quality and durability, and many other items of interest such as archery ammunition, make up and much more can be found both on our stall and on our website.

Gem's Trading Co's shop can be found at Curious Pastimes, Empire, and Lorien Trust events plus many others and across the internet via our web shop - www.LarpGems.Com
