I made a good deal of products for a poorly attended Living History show here in Michigan, and have a lot left. I would like to sell it off, as I rarely do shows.

All of the products are either copied directly from originals I have examined, are based off of good drawings and photos of originals, or in the case of the suspenders, are based off the best written research available. I have sold many items in the past and have heard no complaints. In many of these products I have used my period Wilcox and Gibbs Chain stitch machine, a 19th century stitch makes a difference.

All prices include shipping. Paypal to minieball577@yahoo.com preferred, but I will take Check or Money order also. E-mail for pictures, and I will try to post some later if I can.

I have available:

(2) Confederate Painted Cloth Cartridge Box slings – straight stitch lines on strap, latex base paint and linseed oil paint finish, leather ends. Straps are a bit longer than originals. $21.00 per sling.
