About

Curating the Past with Passion

It started with a millinery shop in Salem, and then I realized there was so much more! An obsessive researcher, I strive to make the most period-correct items I can for the eras I recreate. I work from historic newspaper ads, probate inventories, and images to develop year, place, and season-specific bonnets, hoods, and other accessories to help you bring the past to life.

If you have a specific impression you want to create, convo me and I can make the bonnet, gown, apron and other items you need to be exactly who you want to be in the past.

I'm also a collector, and de-stash my collection to the shop as time permits. You might find my own paintings or some of my antiques, ceramics, patterns, or fabrics, depending on the day-- much like the kind of shop you'd visit in the late 18th or early 19th centuries.
