Capture the Magic of the Victorian Era
Over the years we have been very fortunate to find American companies who specialize in making high quality Victorian style clothing and accessories. Our lovely Victorian hats are handmade in the United States by Americans employed by a fourth generation family business that creates unique and custom Victorian designs. Our beautiful dresses are handmade by ladies in NE Michigan and by Amish seamstresses in Pennsylvania. The hoop skirts, petticoats and crinolines are also made by skilled seamstresses in Southern Florida. A lovely lady in Texas makes many of our handmade Victorian purses. We have provided quality historical costumes for wedding parties, theatrical groups, living history staff, Civil War re-enactors, and 100th Anniversary Titanic parties
We are always on the lookout for high quality home decor that is "Made in America". We may not be the least expensive retailer on the Internet, but we strive to provide high quality goods at a reasonable living wage to support the American economy and American workers.
As far back as she can remember, the owner has been interested in history and culture. Her earliest memories are of going to estate sales with her mother, who worked with local antique dealers. As a result of being surrounded by antiques, Susan became interested in how ordinary people lived - especially during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. She paid for her college education by working as a tour guide at The Henry Ford in the outdoor living history museum. Finally in 2007 Susan had the opportunity to turn her interest in history and costume into a successful business venture. .
We would love to hear from you!
