Folding Hand Fan
I am happy to offer two fan choices. The first, a genuine Sandalwood folding fan has a natural, subtle sandalwood scent. The second is a carved bamboo and silk fan (click for a photo). These carved wooden folding fans are 8 inches long when closed and open to about 14 inches across. Perfect for balls, weddings or any function where you want to cool yourself or your guests. Each fan is accented with a tassle.

Vintage Handkerchief
Handkerchiefs are the number one accessory to have in your reticule! Attractive and always useful, they are so much nicer than a modern kleenex. I found a selection of these vintage white on white handkerchiefs at a small antiques store in Maine. No two are alike, but all are white cotton with lace edging or embroidery.
The Art of the Love Letter Mini Kit
This elegant little kit contains five sheets of beautiful paper with envelopes, plus a romantic seal and sealing wax in their own tiny velvet pouch. Also included is The Art of the Love Letter by by Thomas Campbell, with excerpts from famous missives, including those of Napoleon and Josephine, along with tips and suggestions for penning your own love letters. Perfectly sized to keep in your reticule!

Cotton Lace Gloves

Opera Length White Satin Gloves
The perfect accessory to your evening gown, these gloves are made of stretchable satin and reach a fashionable 22" Opera length. They are one size fits most and come individually packaged and ready to wear. Get a stain on them? Not a problem! Pop them in the wash and they'll come out good as new. You won't find an easier accessory, anywhere!

Black Silk Lace Mitts
Fingerless gloves, also known as Mitts were quite popular during the Regency. They have recently become popular again for the same reason they were created-- keeping your hands warm (or stylish) and your fingers free to work (think of them as gloves you can text in!) These mitts are made of crocheted black silk thread. One size.

Ivory Pashmina (Cashmere and Silk) Shawl
Shawls were quite fashionable during the Regency, and these are made from the perfect blend of cashmere and silk! They measure 64x28" and are a great addition to a short sleeved ballgown. Fringe measures 2" long.

Hatpins
While some of my creations can be made with ribbon ties, it is often easier to use a hatpin to secure a bonnet or hat. These pins come with a removable safety cap. The pins are available in either gold or silver with corresponding accents and can made in any color combination or custom matched to your hat.
