Source for gingerbread trim?

Hi

Just wondering if anyone has a source for exterior gingerbread trim?
Our farmhouse was built in 1889 and the original wooden trim was rotten. We took it off 8 years ago to install new soffits and fascia - but I have always wanted to replace it.
I'd prefer something very long lasting - but I will look at wood options too.

Here is a picture from last year - I have since added shutters.

Thanks,

Front of our home

Thanks Diane
I have been searching Google for the past months - but only come up with about 2 or 3 sources. For some the shipping is so costly - I can't afford it. Good to hear you were happy with Vintage - they are on my list

Thanks again!

Try searching for 'Victorian woodwork' and a bunch of sites should come up.

If you need a lot, an inexpensive jig saw can be a decent investment.
