Question Source for used reenactor’s kit?

Hello all!

I am currently in the hunt for a M36 reenactor’s feldbluse… I could easily buy a new one from ATF (amazingly nice people, btw!), BUT I’d prefer something that looks worn enough to match my authentic awards and insignia, which are all pretty salty…

Here’s my Infanterie Sturmabzeichen, for example:

To be honest, I think my Infanterie Sturmabzeichen with most of the silver finish worn away, my scratched up wound badge, and my soiled EK2 and Ost Medal ribbons, etc. would look rather silly on a sparkling clean, brand new tunic. In essence, I’d like to recreate the tunic this soldat is wearing, but in a fresh from the front state:

I’ve been wondering… Could someone recommend a good source for obtaining used reenactor’s kit? I’ve tried ebay, and the classifieds here and on other forums, but I really haven’t had much luck…

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
