York Viking Festival

So I go to York next week to a big viking festival.  I have been getting my kit together as I want to be warm, and well, we aren't wearing ordinary clothes!

I have a fine linen dress, a heavier linen dress, and last night I made myself a wollen tunic. 

I was going to make a wollen overdress, but I decided to try and kill two birds with one stone and make a tunic I could theoretically use when in the battle arena.  (I haven't done this yet, but I hope to one day, so it won't hurt to be prepared!)

So in York I am going to try and buy some new kit.  I have been told that anything and everything viking kit can be bought there.  So I have to decide what I will buy.

Should I buy a sword or an axe?

Do I want a leather quiver?

Do I want new boots?

Would I like a viking vanity set of earcleaners and tweezers?

If you have been, please feel free to point me in the right direction.
