I've gotten all my 'wench' bodices from them and they have LASTED through years* of faire.  Their customer service is excellent as well.


*And we're not talking 2 or 3 years here.  I got my first bodice from them and it's going on 10 years of wear and it still looks like new.

They vend at Faires up in the North East, and they're on the NERennies Forum.

oh, I second them...  they are fabulous.  I have a pair from them and they are SO comfortable!  Even when I had swollen feet from pregnancy, they fit like a dream.    ahhh, I could wear them every day.

Can't say enough good things about this place.  Good product, cheap as can be, and quick delivery.

I haven't tried this place for garb, but it's the cheapest by far for accessories, and I've had no problems with shipping:

Don't let the models they choose fool you.  Lots of men (myself included) wear the low top moccasins and they look just fine.

TKM, the mocs are not just for women.  They are unisex which is why they come in all sizes, up to 15 I believe.  It seems the only foot models are women, but there are many men that wear those mocs.

i guess you're right... haha i probably should've taken a closer look before opening my big mouth.. it actually looks like either the high top or low top moccasin, with knee-high laces, is pretty close to what I had in mind for my barbarian garb. Thanks for pointing it out, guys!

edit: those tall boots actually... lol i think i know exactly where i'm going with my barbarian garb now XD haha... i love how a resource I try to establish for other people winds up helping myself tremendously...
