Subject: [TheWarOf1812] kit and gear for sale
One of the members in our group was given reenacting gear and kit to
sell on behalf of someone who is no longer in the hobby. So we are
going to help him sell it. We will have all this gear at the Fort Erie
event next weekend, so if you're looking for some used items this is
your opportunity.. There may be more gear down the road too, but we'll
have to wait on that. All prices CDN. All items are used and have some
wear to them. Unless they are extremely worn, I will make no further
comment about the wear on an individual item. Most of this has been in
storage for at least the last ten years and it does smell a little musty.

kind of look. In good condition. Battalion style with tails. Red faced

If you want any of this, send your replies to me (americantory AT
cogeco.ca) and I will mark you down for an item so that it will not be
sold to anyone else. You can pay and pick it up at the Ft. Erie event.
We will be having one mega blanket sale there. Come over to wherever
the 1st Lincoln camp is, likely under the trees again, and we will
have our blanket sale next to our group fly.
