Originally operating under the name Grommet Collectibles in 1999, Randall Grommet sold his first knives at swap meets in Southern California. Not long after that, he made his first appearance at a renaissance faire. At the faires, Grommet Collectibles became Fireblood Arms, which quickly grew from a small tarp Randall would put out at small events to a 900 sqare foot pavilion at some of the largest faires all across Califrornia, Arizona, and Nevada. Fireblood Arms enjoyed the friendship and patronage of the rennies and the guilds then and now. But, renaissance faires are dormant for most of November through February, so Randall and his merry crew needed something to do during the winter down time. Fireblood Arms opened in San Diego on the floor of the Mission Valley Mall next to Ruby's Diner for the Christmas season in 2002. In 2003, Grommet Collectibles opened as an in line store in the Westminster Mall, which was followed by two locations in 2004, one in the Moreno Valley Mall and the second in the Montclair Plaza. That year the crew got spoiled by turning the key and going home instead of packing 8,000 pounds of product, gear, and pavilion and driving several hours to their beds - instead of closing up shop after Christmas, the Moreno Valley Mall location has remained open since then.
In March of 2014, following the relocation of the store to it's current upstairs location, Grommet Collectibles became Grommet's Cutlery & Gifts.
