News: We now have Chocolate and Peppermint on the Website

Welcome to the website for Ragged Soldier Sutlery and Vintage Volumes. At this site you will have the opportunity to view many of the toys, games, and other items offered by Ragged Soldier Sutlery as well as review the books offered by Vintage Volumes.

We started our business focused on civil war toys but, since the civil war occurred during the early Victorian period, they could also serve if you were seeking Victorian toys. Because they were in use 140 years ago, you could also use the label of "old fashioned toys" for many of our products. I guess you could really say that all of our toys are old fashioned since no batteries are required!

Although many parts of this site are pretty well settled but we will still be changing some of the pages, especially Articles: Virginia's Veranda where Virginia is posting articles she has written which have not appeared elsewhere in a magazine or appeared so long ago we are making them available to readers who may not have been subscribers when the articles first appeared. So be sure to bookmark the site and revisit us in the future.

A new feature which appears on this page and many of the other pages is a search feature. We are working to get it on all the pages but right now it has to be manually loaded which takes time. If you need to do a search, the feature is always available on the home page so just hit the menu item to return to this page
