* COLONIAL TRICORN & COCKADE * Absolutely outstanding. Perfect shape. Perfect size. Beautiful to look at and comfortable to wear. Shipped very promptly for me. Cockade is brilliant. It's one of those items you always wanted - got it and it's for more than just costumes - I wore it to vote - turned some heads. *Tyson Froment, AZ....Impeccable workmanship. Super service. Went above and beyond to get the hat to me in time for a pre-Haloween costume party. Excellent service! *John Mannix, WA

I love this hat and it fits perfectly! The construction is excellent, the cockade is wonderful, and the communication was superb with very fast shipping. It worked beautifully with the Hamilton George Washington outfit that I made. I really love the fact that you add the historical notes in the item description. Thank you again for such an awesome hat, I wore it all day and practically forgot it was there it was so light and fit so well. *Julie Yakes, CO

Thank you so much! The hat is perfect! It fit Adam to a 'T', and he is most delighted! The quality is wonderful and he looks grand in it. You are so nice, and with great customer service. We'll highly recommend you to everyone! *Mary and Adam Spencer, NH

Just thought I'd write to say a huge thanks, looking so spiffy it's unbelievable. The doublet fits perfectly and I can move so much better now that I've added some suspenders to the slops. I've added some pictures for you, if you want to use them please feel free. Thanks so much once again, next year I'm going to keep you busy for a while. *Gyles MacLean

This shows me wearing your velvet flat cap with gold beads, which I paired with one of your metallic net snoods. With this ensemble I also wore the matching pouch as well as a large ostrich feather fan and girdle mirror both by you as well. I think the right accessories go a long way to finish an ensemble and yours certainly did the trick! *Nicole Hunsche

WOW! I am thrilled! The flea fur and pomander are just beautiful and arrived so quickly. My pomander and flea fur were such a hit at coronation...Particularly the flea fur!!! It looked so lovely with my Elizabethan gown! I love my Monastery Mirror...Oh my God, it is just gorgeous! Just amazing. The second flea fur is gorgeous... I am so thrilled with everything I have received from you! *Lady Chiara Lucia di Nicola, East Kingdom (Janet De Luca, NY)

The flag came well packaged and on time for a special wedding. Very pleased with this shop! *Maricella Jalbuena, NY..... The seller/artist went above and beyond to make me happy. Her work is high quality and I would highly recommend her to all. I will certainly look to her for future renaissance purchases! *Karen Dvorak, IL

Gorgeous Garb! People were snapping pictures of me left and right at the last event. Everyone in Dragonship Haven swears by the quality of your work! You're a very nice lady and I found that to be so 3 years in a row OR I never would have spent that kind of money with you. Yes, your sewing, choice of fabric, etc. is excellent also; however, I purchased from you because of you..your kindness and patience and how you never pushed for a sale! *Lady Aleezabet Ravenna, East Kingdom (Debbi Guzzi, CT)

Most clothing merchants have either fighter garb or court garb. I have found that Gipsy Peddler (A Division of Palace Gallery) has been able to put together wonderful, sturdy fighter garb that is fancy enough for the highest court and where I have had to replace many fighter pants and shirts from other merchants, I have had no problems with Gipsy Peddler's garb in the 4 years I have worn them and have not had to replace anything! *Lord Athalwolf Ironhand, Atlantia (Tom Ashley, MD)

I'm still bouncing over the outfit. It truly is outstanding. Naturally, I'm showing it off to my friends and they are jealous. *Basia of East Kingdom

* SCA RAPIER ARMOR - DOUBLETS * This doublet is very well made, from the choice of material to the craftsmanship...it speaks the period. We are impressed. *Bridget Jeffrey, CA............................................. Gwen does top notch stuff, as usual! Her customer service is beyond outstanding. That’s why I’m a returning customer over a number of years. Proud to wear my GP garb on the rapier field!! *Vaughn Bechtol, OR

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the doublet and shirt you made for me. They both fit amazingly well and I was nearly speechless with joy the first time I saw myself in them. I am now the best-dressed corpse on the rapier field. I never fail to recommend ou to evryone that shows an interest in rapier here. If someone want the best, it's GIPSY PEDDLER all the way! - *Corbin de la Rue, Meridies (John Wagner)

As Storvik's Baronial Rapier Champion, I have had the pleasure of using a cloak made by the Gipsy Peddler. I didn't think of using one before, but when I step down from my appointment, I will definitely order one for myself! - *Lord Athalwolf Ironhand, Atlantia (Tom Ashley, MD)

Thanks again for the great garb. Everyone goes out of their way to compliment me on it, and of course, I always point them in your direction when they do. *Corbin de la Rue, Meridies (John Wagner)

Your stuff is so consistently good that we're both ready to sing your praises at the drop of a hat, and despite the swarms of very talented garb/armouring types up here, for some reason we always manage to settle down with your catalogue and covet wildly. *Lord Gavin MacAidan, Ealdoremere (Gavin Lusk, Ontario)

* LACED FELT TRICORNS * SPECTACULAR !! I wasn't sure what to expect, perhaps a thin felt with not much body but was pleasantly surprised to find it is Amazing quality, thick, sturdy felt and very well made. I have gotten loads of compliments. Would definitely buy again. * Connie Conley, WA...This is exactly what I wanted and even better quality than I expected! I would definitely order from again! *Lissa McCarthy, TX... What a great product from a great seller. *William Turek, CA

I am an unreservedly enthusiastic supporter of Gipsy Peddler. They have always stood behind their wares, providing a very high level of service, professionalism and customer satisfaction. Over the years, I have recommended GP to numerous new fencers for their armor and have never had to regret doing so. It's so much more fun to best your opponent when you look good doing it! With Warmest Regards. - *THL Edmund Cavendish, Meridies (Steve Heydel, TN)
