San Antonio Unique Medieval-Living Retail Thrives Despite COVID


Knight Watch Games expands its medieval retail selection with its sister store, The Sanctuary, after explosive growth despite COVID restrictions.

One of San Antonio’s most beloved attractions, Knight Watch Games, is expanding their unique approach to retail and community building with its sister store, The Sanctuary. The gaming store has been endearing customers for six years, winning multiple community awards for best game store in the city. The Sanctuary is the next step in the unique business model that has experienced great success, even in a time of COVID and difficult economic pressures.

The Sanctuary is excited to announce its grand opening on Sept. 25. The event will showcase its unique inventory of medieval clothing, weapons, leather and metal armor, as well as household décor. With an inventory that you would normally only find at a renaissance fair, The Sanctuary aims at inspiring the growing fan base of reenactors, fair-goers, costume enthusiasts and live-action role-players. 

Later in 2021, The Sanctuary is planning its first annual fashion show, showcasing the array of clothing from such countries as Lithuania, Germany and Canada. As many as 20 models will participate in a three-act theatrical presentation of the clothing, armor and accessories sold by The Sanctuary.
