Pete has what might seem a very unusual way of selling incense. He is an “Historic Trader”, which means that during the summer he is often found at Living History events and battle re-enactments dressed in full period costume and running his incense stall as part of the Traders Market. Actually it is not quite as eccentric a lifestyle as it might seem at first glance, as these events attract large crowds of spectators In fact thanks to popular T.V. Programmes like “Time Team” there is now a tremendous general interest in anything historical. As a result of this increased interest Historic Traders such as Pan’s Pantry are now part of the thriving Heritage business. As well as this, Pete can present himself as a Living History Apothecary of any period between 1350 and 1550 plus early 18th Century, Victorian or Steam Punk. (WATCH ME ON YouTube!!!) But be warned, We he has a Dark Secret.
From 2001 to 2009 Pete was the Chairman of the Historic Traders branch of the National Market Traders Federation
