I Have an online store that sells Stick making supplies, handles, shafts, ferrules, collars etc.

I also have a trade directory of Thousands of suppliers around the world of various items, I will try my best to help where I can...

Couple more I done thought of:

Gorgeous tweeds: http://www.bookster1uk.com/

Best hats in the world: http://www.lockhatters.co.uk/ (expensive, though)

Reasonably-priced hats and feathers (inc. tricorns, bowlers and toppers): Tom Norbury (pics) (email: dealerinhatts@freenet.co.uk) - alas, can't seem to find a website! He also sells cherries.

Anyone know of a reputable, yet not too expensive hat shop?

Mike

Try 'The Hat Shop'. I got a rather nice Christies(?) Top hat for £25

Yes I was going to suggest them as well although they are called "The Hat Company"...the service is very, very good and the hats are sent quickly and well packed. They have an ebay store, and a website, the top hats are Christy's and are £25. They also do bowlers and other types of hat.

I'm pleased to find glossy top hats are indeed still available. In the unlikely event of my ever being able to afford that kind of money, I'll be ordering one for my enourmous-bonce Significant Other. (A size 7 3/8 bowler leaves red marks on his forehead.)

The Chap also has their store up and running now.

Birmingham:

There's also a hidden hat gem in the Birmingham Indoor Market - there's a gentleman selling workwear and outdoor clothing who also has a remarkable selection of reasonably priced hats hidden away - alas, I don't know the store name, but I've had several nice titfers from him.

I can safely say, without a shadow of a doubt, that there is no such shop in the Castle Arcade Cardiff called "Lipstick Powder and Lace". I walked through the arcade and around the balcony, nothing. Theres a place that sells powdered wigs, but no clothing. So you can strike that one off.

Strange. Oh well, I'll get rid of it. Thanks for letting me know :)

Apparently they relocated to an indoor antique fair on Penarth Road, I have yet to find it.

But please add Jacobs Antique Market, its just behind Central Station in Cardiff, they sell Victoriana, military gear, devices, old medical equipment etc, and its really cheap. Its open Thursday to Sunday :)

Three I've used and recommend from London.

4D Model Shop for tools and a vast range of raw materials, based in Aldgate.

MacCulloch and Wallis Just off Oxford Street, and excellent haberdashery shop.

Locks and Handles Architectural Components Ltd. Excellent range of furniture fittings, door and window hardware, and interior pieces. Based at South Kensington.

Hello
I stock and make a few items while I am staying in Winchester, UK, I design and make jewellery as well as sell Alchemy Gothic jewellery, clothing and leather work. You can find me at lots of London events and WhtibyGoth weekend. Please take a look at my Etsy

http://ProfMaelstromme.etsy.com

I love the real McCoy and its cafe in Exeter, Suttlers Store in Poole,  Sabar Sales in Southsea is a must, BUT my favorite But too expensive high street store for Steampunk is  ALLSAINTS  take a look in there they have some brilliant victorian style boots in pre-faded colours and just wonderful items.  There Camden store front is post- apocalyptic style rusted metal.

Well, I found Lipstick, Powder and Lace, as well as like, a BILLION other cool stalls in a place called The Pumping Station here in Cardiff! Heres the website http://www.the-pumpingstation.co.uk/ its a real treasure trove with everything from Victorian clothing, homeware, militaria and antiques, to scrap brass, bottles and furniture. The stall holders are willing to haggle and do you deals, we found a lovely man called Magnus in a tophat who showed us around, allowed us behind the counters etc.

I got WW2 leather gaiters for £5, they had an enormous 2 metre long brass telescope for £165....so the prices really are awesome! Please add it, its a fab place!

A link for a Worcestershire-based Army surplus store: http://www.surplusandadventure.com/
And they deliver internationally.  :o
They are definitely worth a visit, and will sometimes lower their prices to those cheeky enough to haggle.  :D

Can never have enough grandad shirts (regardless of what my wife thinks).

Anyway, how about a tin zeppelin? Jesters have them. Not sure how good they are but may make a daft gift for someone.

This may be a bit of a longshot, but does anyone know of any vintage stores in Birmingham?
Like that sells collars, buttons and even props if possible

What about some way of listing shops/things of interest unique to one location geographical, so if you're going to visit somewhere you can click on the location and see what the locals have recommended.

A bit like on the Netgoth gothmap, but for steampunks.

http://www.netgoth.org.uk/gothmap/

Surely the answer is a Googlemap?
So it's every hand to his rope or gun, quick's the word and sharp's the action. After all... Surprise is on our side.

Scotland

Glasgow
The Barras for junk and antiques and clothes of every sort and price
Ruthven lane, off Byres road for Clothes (Starry starry night for vintage and retro, they often have uniforms and tailcoats) and junk (Relics for antiques, brass bits and bobs and all sorts of stuff)
Mr Bens in Kings Street for clothes, as you would expect
Paddys market for clothes except the wretched council hounded most of the traders out. Only one or two left on the Briggait side

Two huge jumble sales each year: 72nd Scouts, in September in the westend of Glasgow, and 29th Scouts, in March in the southside of Glasgow.

Edinburgh
Armstrongs in the Grassmarket and elsewhere, for vintage clothes heaven
Le Chariot Express on Clerk Street for amazing junk and some clothes, some suitcases

Oho, this has developed somewhat in the last couple of months since I last deigned to visit. Updating to follow...



Edit: Edited :) Thanks to all. If anyone'd like to make a googlemap, it would be nice. (hint hint)
