When you discover your soul is in the blackpowder world..the real blackpowder world, you'll find that Cabelas and such have nothing you want. Diagon Alley is where you'll shop for supplies. Most muggels (non BP folk) won't understand. You'll need a breach cloth and leggings while you're there too!Navigator said:I am looking where I can buy some traditional wear such as knit hats or coats??
That artisan show is first rate. It's Diagon Alley!tobyje said:I think the wife of the late Bill Kennedy still makes these clothes. Last year at Fort Fredrick Market Square I was looking at some shirts and was introduced to the seamstress, and told it was Bill's wife. Anyone into Muzzleloaders back in the 90's should remember Bill. When he died, he was living near Muncy, PA. I have no contact info.
If you can wait until the first Saturday of Febuary, go to the Artisan show at the Country Cupboard in Lewisburg. All kinds of clothes. If they don't have your size, they measure you for size and mail the items to your house. One of the vendors at this show is Yesteryears, as mentioned in a previous post.
