Still one of the best with a great variety and decent price range.   Always received excellent service......from both these shops...

We don't have Fyne Hats on here.
She made me a custom Venetian that was lovely, sturdy and not very expensive.

I wish I looked as good as the hat.

I know the owner and operator of Fyne Hats be Felicity. She is an honorable person who stands by her quality of work and her commitment to her customers. I have often referred customers to her and she to me.

I have spent a lot of money on garb over the years.  One of my more recent purchases was from Truly Originals, http://trulyhats.com/frames/Firt%20try%20frameset.htm.  You can see how my hat was made in this blog post:  http://trulyhats.blogspot.com/2011/11/new-custom-order-finished.html?showComment=1330616650201#c2065678133540174350

It is so pretty, light weight, and more cool to wear than all of my other expensive hats.  And it is exactly what I wanted, because she worked with me to create just the right hat for me!  I couldn't be happier.

  She is great! I have been following her page on FB  (Truly Carmichael);  that white Spanish portrait dress she just completed is amazing!

  (sort of) on topic-I was excited to find she is about the only source for affordable HA replica ouches I have seen.

Just ordered a few things from the Tudor Shoppe- easy ordering and quick shipment (less than a week between ordering and receiving).  The items were a bit steep in price, but not ridiculous.  Sizing was pretty accurate, and I'm happy with my order.

Has anyone used medieval collectables or dark night armory ... I plan on getting basics from them but still spending 200 dollars... But hopefully I should be okay since it is a simple order. Waiting on my taxes then ill shall repost  my findings

 MC is a decent source for basic odds and ends-I bought my hubby a 'Tudors' (as in the TV show)
white cotton shirt with black work for under $40.00.  He gets complements each year on it.
  Keep your eyes out for sales:
  I bought 5 leather ring belts @$9.99 each from the site (I spent $40.00 for one bought at faire, 10 years ago!).
  They had a sale on cotton breeches for $20.00 pair-scored 3 pair in brown, tan, and black. 



Some items are very cheaply or carelessly made. for example: The Surrey Chemise

http://www.medievalcollectibles.com/p-5370-surrey-chemise.aspx

 It is made to have drawstrings around each sleeve in 4 places.  the drawstring channels are made of pieces of cheap, metallic wide trim sewn onto the sleeves, with the drawcords passed under them. 
  The seamstress obviously sewed the channels down over the drawstrings to save time having to thread them through the channels later.  She wasn't particularly careful, and the results were drawstrings that were sewn sewn over and down in numerous places on both sleeves.
  I had to fix them before I could wear it, so I spent an hour or so ripping seams and resewing channels.   
   The same chemise also has a seam straight down the front of the body which I seriously don't like,  and its' made of a very flimsy cotton poly blend, like you find on the $1.99 shelf at Hancocks.  The drawstring neckline is also far too small to wear off shoulder.   It barely qualifies as a boat neck shirt when completely open and ungathered.   I note that the models' hair carefully hides this. 
   It also comes with 'dry clean only' tag (on cotton?)-which is a pretty good indicator that the whole mess is cheaply made and they expect it to fall apart pretty quickly. While it can be washed on delicate cycle with no visible issues, I took the precaution of resewing the seams, and wearing it very sparingly.   It cost me $50.00 on sale-they are asking $75.00 now. 
   I figure I could make it for $10.00, paying retail for the fabric and trim (which is fraying).  The drawstrings are that plastic-y, poly metallic stuff that melts and costs about .99 for 3 yards at Hancock's. The trim is also non-fabric, and also a very cheap, metallic, 100% polyester stuff,  closest I could find was something slightly better @$1.99 yard.
  Coincidentally, this the ONLY item I have bought  from them that actually carried the 'Medieval Collectables' label.   Hubby's shirt was from another company and sold through their website.

Etsy shop:  Dungeon Duds N Jewels.  I just received a custom made chemise and it is perfect.  Great communication with the seller.  I like the chemise so much, I ordered another one from them.

I've listed a few handbaskets I've lined and/or painted.   They are up on Etsy
