Chivalry has a new home in London at Reliks and Reliks.com. With little more than a dream, Jamie Meiklejohn and Chris Howard developed a concept store that pays homage to our glorious past. When we started Reliks people thought the idea was crazy but once they saw what we offered they soon understood our passion.We rely heavily on the history of every single item we carry. We started years ago by traveling to festivals throughout Ontario and hoping to one day open our store. April 1, 2000 we realized these dreams with the opening of our first location.
We always knew in our hearts that what we were doing was interesting but we needed to convince others. We took inspiration from the fabulous tales of knights and their ancient battles. Everybody loves a great story and thats what we were going to give them. We started building a store that was not only a retail location but acted as a mini museum loaded with history. We wanted it to feel like youve stepped into a museum but still be able to hold a real sword, and see what a warrior would see through his helm.
We searched the world for weaponry and armour that rival the originals and bring in new pieces weekly to give our customers new experiences every time they visit. Reliks also focuses on the lifestyles of our past with items such as chess sets, a game with origins dating back to the 6th Century AD, jewelry, clothing and much more. We chose a career that most people have forgotten about and havent looked back. We couldnt think of dedicating our lives to anything else.
