23rd annual Victorian Tea

2017VictorianTeawebheader

Sunday, April 9 | 2 - 4 PM

Thoroughly Modern Addie – Women and the Vote

Greet Addie as she returns from a suffrage meeting in the year 1907. Imagine a new century bursting with energy, where the future seems limitless. Women are divided on the right to vote. A young, energetic President, Theodore Roosevelt, is in office. Automobiles are still a luxury item for the rich. Postcards, nickelodeons and cycling are all the rage, and everyone watches the mail for the new Sears, Roebuck catalog. Fashion brings more comfort and larger hats. Good etiquette and proper social usage is expected and practiced. Debra Slone, from our popular apron history program, returns as Addie.

Favors, raffle and door prizes | Doors open at 12:30, Tea served at 2:00, followed by program.

Shopping prior to and after the Tea with:
Sweetea’s Tea Shop - Tea gift items
Art By JoeK – Wood mobiles and jewelry by official Indiana Artisan Joe Krutulis
Bone Appetit - Premium dog treats and accessories
Sleepy Cat Studio - Handcrafted jewelry and gift items by Monique Cagle
