Our philosophy: To produce quality leather products for
Medieval and Renaissance Enthusiasts that are as authentic as
possible. To that end, we offer a unique line of authentic quivers,
scabbards, sheaths, targes, and flasks. We also offer items to
compliment any period outfit (i.e. mugs, hats, and belts.) Some
modern conveniences have been used where necessary, but the designs
are still authentic.

Kings Ransom began as a hobby in 1994 and slowly developed a line
of authentic medieval reproduction leather products. In 1996, the
hobby became a weekend business. In 1998, the weekend business
became a full time "shop" out of our living room, which
forced us to move to a larger location in 1999. All products are
hand made, requiring hours of painstaking cutting, carving, dying,
painting, and sewing.
The business had to close for a few years (2002 - 2013) but the second generation of the family has decided to reopen the business. The same quality line of products is offered, with some minor changes for modern items and methods.
