As many of you know several events both indoor shows and outdoor living history events have been cancelled recently due to the Corona Virus / COVID-19. Many of you are aware that it is largely a cottage industry of vendors, merchants, or artisans who support our hobby. The vast majority of these vendors and merchants are very small family owned and family operated business that have few, if any, full time employees. These same merchants rely heavily on the income generated at shows and events.
Because these event cancellations will seriously harm many of the vendors and merchants who support our hobby we have decided to create this page so that you can find merchants and continue to support them even if you can't attend an event to do so. This listing will be open to any merchant, vendor, or artisan who caters to our hobby. We thank you all for your continued support and business.
If you are a merchant, vendor, or artisan who would like to be listed here, please use the Contact Us Form to send us a message and be sure to include:
Business Name, Proprietor's Name, City & State.
A Short (1-3) sentence description of your business (be sure to include any specials you are offering such as discount codes or etc.)
