Traditional Treasures

Traditional Treasures

Besty and Warren Urbik

There is a soft place in my heart for couples who can work and cosplay together. At Cyphan I had an opportunity to meet Betsy and Warren Urbik from Machesney Park, IL. They've been together for almost 20 years, and they actually met doing medieval reenacting. When I met them they were both in their steam punk costumes and they were running a booth at the Cyphan dealers room. They actually recognized me from C2E2 (small world).

The Urbiks had a neat variety of items
called Traditional Treasures, which includes books, clothes, and
jewelry. They've been selling items since 2002. My favorite were the
little steam punk trinkets from Antina's Uniques and Costuming. Betsy also makes her own jewelry that she's been selling for about half a year now.

The next Illinois conventions the Urbiks will be attending are WindyCon and Reenactor Fest. If see them, say hello, and check out their neat little trinkets.
