After 23 amazing years, our owner is retiring and moving West to be closer to her family.
Our Locke Street Shop will close at the end of the day on December 24th, 2016.
The majority of our historical goods will be available early in 2017 and at events at Historical Twist (www.historicaltwist.com). Please bear with us both as we work through the physical and technological challenges involved in making this happen. Orders taken through this website and through Historical twist will be filled by one company or the other during this transition time.
If you'd like to stay in touch with the continuing adventures of Spencer's Mercantile, please follow us on Facebook, and do check us out on Etsy.
Thank you for your patronage and support throughout our crazy venture. It's been a wonderful ride!
Whether you're a re-enactor, a historian working with a museum or historic site, a movie or theatre person, a history buff, or just someone looking for something a little different and exciting, we've got some wonderful items to pique your interest and suit your needs.
We take great pride in the quality and accuracy of the historically-based products that we carry. They are reproductions of items used during the War of 1812 (a.k.a. the Regency/Jane Austen era), French and Indian War (F&I), and American Revolutionary War, as well as our most recent obsessions: Late Victorian, Edwardian, World War I, and Steampunk!
Our prices are shown in Canadian dollars, but you can now shop in US dollars if you prefer! Simply click on the nifty currency button at the far right of the shopping page, and the prices on the individual items will show US dollars when you click on the items.
