Online Sutlers

 Sutlers are the merchants who sell Living History equipment, both at the events, and through the mail. While there are many excellent sutlers besides those on this list, there are also some to be avoided. It is wise to consult with a veteran reenactor before making any purchase. The following sutlers are online to serve you

This list was created with assistance from many sources, most notably that of  Rob Stevenson and our own Marc Averill.  Their well researched information, and dedication to excellence, is much appreciated.
