Inquire about prices…I am not sure what I paid for some of these so I need to look them up.


Used 4 bone Hoop Skirt 33” long 95” bottom hoop circumference 36” waist to 28” waist (drawstring)…this one has seen a lot of use but is still in fine working order…it has steel hoops in casings. $25

Corded Bonnet Yellow with teeny tiny red dots and black teeny tiny flower sprigs. Adjustable $40 worn to one event

Large Wrapper made from Past Patterns Red with Medium sized paisely’s plus smaller paisley’s evenly spaced Different lining fabrics (skirt is not fulling lined as pattern suggest but has hem facing) Also I did some piecing on this one (more authentic right?  ) Vegetable Ivory Buttons fabric tie at waist (a variation I stole from Kay Fig Wrapper pattern which I have made up before also) Very adjustable…never worn…buttons holes where to be done by hand and I must say that hasn’t gotten done. Skirt is long in back then the front to acommodate a hoop or in my case my big butt  More measurements upon request. $150

2 pairs of wool/linen ladies stockings oatmeal in color come to above knee…thigh high on those with skinnier legs Ealstic in tops to help keep them up. I got these from 99 district fabrics and they are nice but has a twist to them at the ankle…only wore one pair once…the feet are too big for my tiny feet…otherwise I would have kept them for modern wear. $15 for both pairs or one pair for $10

Plain White Petticoat (underhoop) 90” hem circumference 28 inches in length Waist is 36” closes with a millk glass button Very Deep hem $35 wore to one event

Plain white Petticoat (over hoop if you where a small one like me) 105” hem circumference 29.5” in length 35” waist Deep hem closes with white milk glass button $45 wore to one event

Very Fancy Over hoop Petticoat 34” waist 33” long 5 tucks (each tuck is ½”) and also has hand applied cotton lace $65 (worn to two events)

Chemise made from Galla rock pattern 41” around neck/shoulder band, 48” bust 16” arm bands worn several times, has front opening placket with antique calico button $45

Drawers 41” waist to 33” waist (partial drawstring…front is flat) length 29” has 3 ½” tucks. A little staining but a good bleaching would fix that…I have bleached them before. Worn several times $20

Ivory wool twill corset lined with white/pink stripe polished cotton. This is a Unique Corset to say the least….I used what I had one hand…it is made from the laughing moon pattern and is the one without the bust gussets. 12.5” busk 39” bust, 31” waist, 40” hips and these are the measurements of the corset fully laced…you should have a 2-4 inch gap in the back. This corset was worn to one event in Florida was no hotter than any cotton corset…the wool twill is very light weight in that respect. Since this is such a unique creation I will only ask $55 for it (has two piece grommets in back)

White cotton coutil Corset made from the Homespun Pattern size 18 lined with white kona cotton Busk is 11” Bust 37” Waist 32” hips 44” These measurements where taken with corset fully laced you need at least a 2-4 inch gap in back. This corset was worn once for a few hours…too long waisted for me or I would keep it. $100 (also has two piece brass grommets in back)


Toddler’s size moccasin kit from Smoke and Fire (with green wool lining)…I started on one but didn’t finish…comes with every thing you need to make them…they come cut out. $5

Fake hair braided and rolled into a bun with invisible hairnet…brunette $10 (comes in a neat paper box)

Some amish hair pins $5

A black pertersham ribbon belt with repo buckle from Christine’s Misc. $10
