I believe the full name of the place is Dharma Trading Co. and the website
I just went and checked the site to be sure I had it correctly. You can
order a catalog or browse online.
BTW, when doing prairie/ranch recreation, we're pretty far out from town.
In reality, you might not see another human, if you lived on the range, but
a couple times a year. If you missed something on a town run, you did
without for six months or a year, so learning what native plants could be
used how, and planting your own dye garden with the vegetables and other
edibles and the medicinal herbs, could be important.
One reason I like doing this kind of re-creation -- women were VERY
self-sufficient in those days, by necessity and not choice. I get to do a
lot more than the "town girls" did.
