Kalamazoo Living History Show

The Kalamazoo Living History show is one of my favorite events of the year. Basically, it's a giant historical trade show. Anything you could possibly want for living history, reenacting, or historical costuming, all in one place for the whole weekend. It's amazing.

I'll be there with the 1st Regiment, my favoritest 1812 unit ever. We've got a few tables set up for information and promotional stuff for the Bicentennial, and then we also have a table at which to sell our wares. I've boxed up several lengths of fabric to bring, and I'm hoping that they can go to a new home this weekend.

If you're even sort-of local, I'd love to see you there. It's a great event, and the best reenactor shopping you'll find--anything and everything pre-1890, from antiques and art to firearms and furniture. And of course fabric! I've got some really nice stuff that I've been hoarding (or maybe aging, like wine), but have finally come to the conclusion that I just won't be using it in the foreseeable future. Lots of wools, a couple silks, and some lovely cotton perfect for regency/1812. We'll be in the North Expo under the flag of the First. Hope to see you there!


  1. Were you guys near the F&I Massachusets Battalion that was in the back corner?

    1. If you mean the unit in blue with red facings, with two tables in the corner and lots of slideshows/media displays--yep, we were right next door. :)
