MartinsMercantile's Shop Announcement

Martin's Mercantile was a highly recognized and respected name in the re-enacting community from 1990 to 2001. Judy Martin was the proprietress. Through Judy's 11 years in business, she had the opportunity to collect and study original costumes and textiles during the Civil War era at a variety of museum in the United States and in England. Also, Judy collected an extensive collection original garments and accessories through her career. In 2001, she decided that it was time to leave the hobby for personal reasons and enjoy retirement along with her husband Ray, the "official corset fitter" of Martin's Mercantile. For the last 7 years, Judy's costume collection has been properly stored for historical purpose to preserve the past for our future. It is now time to sell the collection to the new era of living historians so they can appreciate and love the items as much as Judy did.
