Summertime always seems to be the time to travel, and several of us at Recollections have had some less-than-fun experiences with trying to pack Civil War or Victorian outfits, and arrive with them still in wearable condition. We invite you to share your own experiences with us. What has worked well for you, and what has not? Do you have any funny stories about costume mishaps? We would love it if you would share them.  You can post your traveling story or advice here or send an email to Barb at

Thank you for all of your entries.  We have a winner from a random drawing of the participants:


Barb will be getting in touch with Leslie so that she can receive a Gift Basket full of Victorian and Edwardian accessories!
