SCOTTISH NEW YEAR IN EDINBURGH

The torchlight procession has ended. The music, singing, and dancing has quieted. The bells chime midnight, and someone tall and dark is the first to set foot across the threshold, bringing a dram of whisky for prosperity's sake. Hogmanay is over—it's on its way to Ne'erday now. Where are you? You're in Scotland, of course, where New Year's Day—or Ne'erday—has a history that stretches back to the Reformation and Renaissance, and into the distant past.

Some form of winter celebration is present in most European cultures, and Hogmanay's longstanding tradition shows its ties to other European winter solstice festivals, the roots of which go back into the distant past, heralding a return of the light after the Longest Night.

Renstore celebrates its 25th birthday in October, 2016!

We have been active in the Renaissance business for more than 20 years. We began as Chivalry Sports Videos in October of 1991. All we had to sell then was just one video about the SCA called "Once Upon a Weekend" on VHS. No one had even heard of the Internet then, so we published a small catalog. That led to selling videos for Belly Dance instruction and audio tapes of filk music and a few other things. In a short time we added a few articles of clothing, belly dance jewelry, and books. Four years later we created the first online catalog for Medieval and Renaissance Clothing on AOL. In fact we were one of the first clothing stores of any kind on the internet. When we moved from AOL to our own domain, we changed the name of the online store from Chivalry Sports to Renstore.com because it was easier to spell. In 2009, we redisigned our webstore and moved to more secure cloud computing. Now we are stronger and faster than ever.
