Hello, I'm Lisa Ashton, and I have a non-profit under the umbrella of the International Costumer's Guild, called Miss Lizzy's Traveling Historical Fashion Show. My mission is to preserve, study and research Victorian and Edwardian fashion and to understand better the commonplaces of everyday life in the Victorian era. I take both small and large displays/exhibits of these items to costume-related conventions and talk about them, and let people take photos and examine them in detail. I would LOVE to have authentic garments to add to Miss Lizzy's collection--they are well taken-care-of, and I exhibit them in cycles. Right now I am concentrating on 1860's and the color green. I am able to provide a tax deduction receipt as well, if that would be needed.
In addition to any articles of clothing, no matter how commonplace, I am extremely interested in the following: Lady's vanity items such as vanity caskets, hairbrushes and hand mirrors, gloves, millinery, quilts or authentic period fabrics for study of colors and prints, hoops or bustle cage crinolines, detachable collars or cuffs, hair wreaths and memorial jewelry, antique photographs to document fashions and accessories, hose (hard to find in any condition) corsets, chatelaines, sewing notions of any kind (like pincushions etc.), parasols, fashion periodicals such as Godey's or Petersons. I am even interested in items as commonplace as an antique carpet sweeper, and laundry tub. I would be happy to pay for shipping costs as well.
