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.
