Fabrics, furs & leather etc.

Hi there,

Can't recall who said they were interested in a source for Victorian cotton & linen items, so here's the info for anyone interested in buying finished items, or materials for diy:

The two main reenactors fairs are unfortunately taking place on the same weekend this year - 28th, 29th and 30th October.
Both are near Coventry and you can 'do' the two in a day - entry is £3 per adult tho.

Web addresses for further details are:
The Reenactors Market - http://www.reenactorsmarket.co.uk/
The National Living History Fayre -

The Reenactors Market is a little restricted as to material traders but good for woodwork, 13-15c finished costume, finished leather goods and fur - more your earlier historic periods and not much Victorian.
The Living History Fayre is broader in range, covering Roman to WWII - good for pottery, woodwork, armour, leather, fabric and finished costume (including Victorian).

Sorry for the short notice, but have been suffering from an unpleasant attack of rl so not been around much recently.
