Welcome to The Carpetbagger On-Line Shop

Whether it is an authentic reproduction or a modern adaptation, each piece is an example of hand-made, quality craftsmanship. Customers from each state and 13 foreign countries have bought these one-of-a-kind treasures.

Pieces made by The Carpetbagger have been featured in several movies. They appeared in period pieces like "The Lone Ranger", "Hell on Wheels" (western), "Tombstone," "Gettysburg," and "Amistad", and "Sound of Music" (Live on NBC). The stars in "Queen" and "The Love Letter," a Hallmark Hall of Fame special, and, most recently, "Bewitched, "The Bold and The Beautiful", "A Little Night Music" On Broadway New York at the Walter Kerr Theatre (Catherine Zetta Jones and Angela Lansbury), and "Last Man Standing" (Tim Allen) also carried Carpetbagger bags.

Located overtop L.B.'s Shoe Repair in historic downtown Woodstock, The Carpetbagger creates reproduction carpetbags and travel bags that are a favorite of Civil War re-enactors. You must come in the shoe shop to get to The Carpetbagger store upstairs. The Carpetbagger is located at 140 West Court Street, just up the street from the oldest courthouse still in use west of the Blue Ridge - originally built in 1791 and a Virginia Historic Landmark that is on the National Register of Historic Places. Civil War buffs know the Northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia well as the location of many key battles in the War Between the States.

These carpetbags are available in a secured On-line Store and feature nearly 100 different fabrics to choose from. Send us an information request or visit the shop just 1.5 hours from Washington D.C., just off US Route 11.
