2nd Annual Nineteenth Century Extravaganza 4/26 - 4/28!

I Do Declare (2012) - She'll be returning again
with a new collection you won't want to miss!
If Sakura Matsuri is not your thing and you were planning to head to Brooklyn to see what the borough hype is all about, then stop by the Old Stone House for the 2nd Annual Nineteenth Century Extravaganza!

This was an event created last year brought about by the sheer love and passion for the past - The New York Nineteenth Century Society. Kicking it off with 1880's Ball, panels, a fashion show and more!
