Traditional General Store - an 1800’s general store
A little bit about what the Traditional General Store is about. I started as a blanket trader back in 1978 in Washington state. I was making items of leather and beads and sold them on a blanket at Rendezvous' to support our family going out and enjoying the sport of the Mountain Man and it has escalated since then to become an "1800 Traveling General Store". I do Historical events such as Mountain Man Rendezvous', Civil War Events, S.A.S.S (Single Action Shooting Society, S.C.A. (The Society for Creative Anachronism),Clackamus County Fair (a Pioneer village for over 30 years), Old Sacramento Gold Rush Days, many events I have helped put on and much more as long as History was involved. Most of what is in the Traditional General Store has some relevance to American History. If one does not go out with something in their hands they go out with something they earned without having to read it in a book.
Our Motto is: "If we don't have it you really didn't need it"
I carry a line of clothing ( I make the majority of clothing that I carry) for the woman, man and children from outer
garments to undergarments, hats, jewelry, watches, sundials, shoes, and
accessories for women and men. We have musical instruments, trunks,
furs, fur hats, leather bags, fur bags, necklaces, kids toys, games,
antler products such as candle sticks, quill pens, ink wells, journals, powdered ink, hair ties, Indian items, suckers, buttons and things,
turtle shells, bones, skulls etc. A lot of our items have the written history that
lets the people read about how they related to American history. If it
doesn’t have the written history then we give it to them verbally. So
even if they do not go out with a purchase they at least have gain a
