After a lot of hard work, most of it by my father, our Victorian website is on-line!
For the moment it is in Dutch only. I am working on the translation into in English but my dad
really needs a break from this project.
The pictures are the most important part of the website and you don't need to be able to read dutch to enjoy them!
So please visit: http://gracieuse.nl/
and feel free to leave a comment below, but please be kind!

IUUÖoI always enjoy looking on Marktplaats (sort of Ebay) even when I don't have money to buy anything. Here are some nice items I came across.
Silk bodice, ca. 1880 according to the seller. I think it's earlier, around 1860.
I think this silk bodice dates around 1890-1900. That is not my favorite Victorian era but I absolutely love the silk floral fabric.
Black wool coat lined with moleskin. I would love to buy this for my husband but as he is quite tall it would probably be too small. Like most antique/vintage clothing unfortunately.
Black wool folkwear vest, Zuid Beveland, Zeeland
No longer available/sold.
Still working on our new website, it's nearly finished....
