SATURDAY, Dec. 11, 2021
11am – 4pm
1108 – First Street
Jump in your jalopy or alight from your carriage! If you are tired of working hard and have missed out on costuming fun this year, then let’s call a close to 2021 in Grand Shopping Style!
Lady Victoria of Essex invites you to participate in some socially distant Seasonal Frivolity in the town of Snohomish, WA. Bring your children, spouse, or significant other for a relaxing fun day together with fellow historical costumers.
This year’s participants are encouraged to meet up out front of the Antique Station @ Victoria Village, on 1st Street. This is a “mall’s-worth” of resellers of vintage products and lovely antiques. Lady V has asked that the resellers bring in hats, gloves, canes, etc. that would appeal to our shoppers.
From there, people can amble down the streets of Snohomish, wandering in and out of favorite stores, finding purchases ideal for gifts or for personal enjoyment. The last stop for shopping will be the large Star Center Mall at the end of town. There are 3-4 stories of charming goods sure to please!
For those who tire easily or wish for refreshments, Lady V’s favorite place to enjoy warming drinks and meals in town, is the Cabbage Patch Restaurant.
Here you will find everything on the menu from adult beverages, coffee, tea, snacks, salads and main courses, to flavor-rich pies for dessert! Gluten free meals have also been found here….
What to wear:
Victorian or Edwardian fashions for men or women, from 1870’s – 1910
Be sure to dress in layers, fur is ok to wear! Snohomish is frequently much chillier than the Seattle area, so having warm clothing is a grand idea!
11am in front of Antique Station @Victoria Village
1108 – First Street
You can arrive whatever is comfortable to your schedule. If you are early, great. If you come after lunch, also great. It would be nice to get group images in front of the tree on 2nd around noon, but that will depend on how many people are available.
None! This is a self guided shopping excursion with friends.
**Reminder, please be considerate to other participants and shopkeepers who still require attendees to participate in Social Distancing and Wearing of Masks during the up-tick of the Corona Virus. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated….
Can I leave early,
or must I stay for dinner?
The timetable is completely yours and can be fluid. If you need to leave or get tired, break off from the group. Those who wish to continue on for snacks, drinks and/or dinner, are certainly welcome to do so. NO pre-arrangements have been made for a discount or reservation. You are on your own.
**This activity is purely for entertainment purposes and at your own risk by going out in public.
What if I get lost?
