Such is the joy of the life!
Anyhow, if anyone knows where I can find the following or can help me get the following, I'd be very grateful:
replica coins (Medieval and Roman) - the Museum of London has them, and so does the Richard III Museum in York. I had quite a lot and they are all, all gone. I needed more and now I have none. There's a moral in that.
replica arrowheads and spearheads - only really well attested ones. I got mine at Leeds after a long, long talk with the smith
a medium sized purse (11th-14th century style) - again, I got mine at Leeds
replica pins and needles - these aren't so Medieval - in fact, some of them were significantly later (though none later than the 17th century). I had a paper that contained a lovely row of mixed ones. All were well attested, and I had plans to use one of them this week, which is why the pouch was out and which I rather suspect is why the whole lot has walked.
an old-fashioned poesie ring (not quite Medieval, but close - what I was after was a replica, but someone sent me the wrong thing, many years ago)
a Thomas a Beckett pewter reproduction pilgrim brooch
a replica of an Eleanor timetelling ring (silver) - I miss this most of all
a simple ring-brooch
PS I need to talk to http://togs-from-bogs.blogspot.com.au/ about the needles I suspect.
PPS I have located a source for the replica of that exact-same pilgrim badge, so that's another thing I'll be able to replace easily. Yay!! The badge has a special importance, because it was from Elizabeth Chadwick and part of a really evil set of ongoing jokes, so I'm glad it was so easy to locate.
