Tophat has reenacted since 1982 and Miss Becky has been reenacting since 1994. I guess you could say that we are reenacting veterans!
We have found that in order to keep the hobby interesting we needed to try new impressions within the hobby of reenacting, and that is how Tophat's Sutlery was born.
Fourteen years ago we decided to try a Sutler impression. We found that we enjoyed it so much that we started doing our "Sutler" impression several times a year. From that humble begining we formed what has become theTophat's Sutlery that you see today.
We have grown considerably the last few years. We now regulary stock military items such as: Leathers, Canteens, Insignia, Lanterns, and our product list continues to grow!
In 2015 we are introducing our "Church Wood" line of products made from church pews milled just after the Civil War. Stop by and check out this little piece of history!
So please stop by and see us under canvas on Sutlers Row. We are really looking forward to meeting you!
