Some of my reenactment tools

Just thought I'd post a few pics of the tools i've either made or bought. I'm planning to use then to reenact a travelling canvasworker and tent repairer.

Vanishing posts?

I can understand why some of my posts have vanished and I can imagine this one will vanish too.
I posted an ad about a pair of viking shoes for sale and it has gone, any advice?
