About PennyRiver

Sales 9,038
On Etsy since 2017

Welcome to my shop! The garments and accessories in this shop are based on research and portraits of the historical periods they represent. All of the ready-made items are machine sewn and hand finished to give them a historical look appropriate for costume and historic interpreter use. Fully hand-sewn items can be made upon request. If you are looking for something and you don't see it, please ask! I happily accept custom orders, and I would love to help you "time travel". A portion of all of our sales are donated to various Anti-Racism causes, and to Black and Indigenous historians and educators working to bring America’s whole history to light.
