Don't let your enthusiasm and excitement let you get ripped-off. There are dozens of places from which you can buy "authentic" "Roman" items, only to find out later that they are not authentic at all. Please check with your unit/group Commander before buying any items.
At reenactor.Net, we list some of the BEST sutlers out there, so give them a look and tell 'em you saw their ad here!!!
It''s a place for customers to rate their experiences with vendors servicing the reenacting community. Good or bad, let's hear it. Vendor Feedback Reviews are posted only after reviewed by the webmaster. Positive reviews are posted as they are submitted, negative reviews are posted 2 weeks after submission. During this time, the vendor is sent the review in order to provide them ample time to provide us with a rebuttal. After 2 weeks if no rebuttal is received the review is posted. Vendors who do not recall the buyer are encouraged to make contact and work out the problem.
Spread the word! The RCG has not only helped other reenacting time periods by spreading the word about bad vendors and experiences, but it has also really helped new vendors get discovered and their businesses grow. What it really means is that if a vendor screws someone, then it will be out there for everyone to see. And yes, vendors CAN rebut feedback. Be polite, no flames and be professional!!
