    Default Sutler with some great looking stuff.

    Found this guy on a old west re enactor site. Might not be practical to order from England, but his stuff looks ipressive


    Edit By Moderator-- Paul's link to an Esty site has been removed. Sorry Paul, no reflection on you.

    The vendor linked, Mark Watts, was removed from this forum years ago due to numerous complaints of failure to deliver items paid for. A good Facebook search will reveal that there is still a problem there, especially with large prepaid orders for some of our brothers across the pond. Last I knew, Mark Watts was in South Carolina. He also is the administrator of a large Facebook group for used reenactor items. I won't point that group out, as that will only serve to attract more folks who may not have a clue.

    I will however, point out a FaceBook Group called "Bad Bad Sutlers". Its easy to find in a search. It is an open group, and folks can read the messages without joining. The group was started by several men who each purport to be out several hundred dollars each in undelivered merchandise ordered from Mark Watts. There's a lot of common experience there. Every once in awhile somebody posts who got their stuff from Mark Watts.

    That's not a UK sutler, that's Mark Watts from South Carolina. Not as impressive as it looks on website.

    And as I see it, that's not a bad thing.

    The 137th NY performed way, way better than the 20th Maine at Gettysburg. They just didn't have a self promoting blow hard of a Col. leading them.

    Paul, it is wise to be precise in wording. You may wish to link to the post.

    Mark Watts is also banned on the Authentic Campaigner.

    Actually, getting the word out isn't a bad idea.

    I had been looking at some of his items (particularly the tobacco pouch), and recommended them to someone who was looking for something similar (I did indicate that I hadn't ordered from him, so I didn't have any actual experience). That pard did get his item, but it was a fight - that was the first I knew of any issues. My pard apparently hadn't heard of any either, since he did order.

    Andy, I think Paul means he will post a warning.

    Meantime, I wish some fellers would be more vocal on the various increasingly fragmented Facebook groups. Mark Watts thrives precisely because he can control his sales Facebook group and bann folks who have been cheated. Meanwhile, other reenactors feed Watts group with sales posts, make it even more popular--and provide a screen for his sales.

    This is not a new problem. The trail on this goes back more than 7 years.
