We list only those merchants who have high quality goods (or are progressing

who highly value authenticity.
Camp Kitchen Items:
(Primarily) Cloth, Clothing & Buttons:
& Trowbridge. Suppliers of authentic fabrics.
& Thistle Pewter Works. Excellent pewter reproductions of military
and celtic buttons, broaches etc.
Hill Clothiers. Great custom work for about four centuries of fashion.
Historic. A great tailor who is in the hobby, and one of the few 1812
merchants who crafts his work with a high degree of authenticity.
Booth Draper. Supplier of wools and linens.
Hamlet. The best source for silk and worsted ribbon, rope for tying stays.
District Storehouse. Excellent source of fabrics and buttons.
- 100% Linen Suppliers: In southern Ontario, Toronto has the best selection.
I recommend King's Textiles, 445 Richmond St. (best for printed linen).
Other are Leo's Textiles 474 Queen St. (best place for the handkerchief-weight
linen). Also, EuroFab 432 Queen St. and Downtown Fabrics 436
Queen St. (best selection of coloured linen). They are all within one block
of each other at the intersection of Queen and Spadina. Here a map if you need one. Hamilton linen suppliers are also very
good but there is smaller pool of merchants. They are all located on one block
on Ottawa street, the best IMO being Fabric
Fabric who currently charge $8/yard for 100% linen.
Tyme Toys. Authentic toys for children.
Grondin. A good friend of ours and a member of Queen's Rangers. If you
need a story teller, she's the one to call.
