Below is a list of good colonial merchants who can supply much of what a Glover sailor or camp follower will need. These merchants and sutlers are generally well-known to the living history community and often attend events with their wares.

Check out their web sites for clothing and accoutrements, patterns, fabrics and notions, tools, weapons, and camp equipment. If you've done business with others, please let us know so that we can add to this list.

For several entries on this list, Glover's Marblehead Regiment gratefully acknowledges resources found on the "18th Century New England Life" web site:
