A $50, non-refundable planning fee is required
to reserve your date on the calendar. The
step-on guide fee is $35 with a two hour minimum
tour. Jan Pettiet narrates the history of the Shreveport
area while guiding the group through the designated
route. All entry fees to attractions, meals,
and transportation costs are paid by the group.
A clothing and accessories presentation of
Yesterday's Lady is $300. This includes an
approximate three hour set up time for the
display. The group provides the room and at
least three skirted oblong tables if possible.
All other display props, dress forms, etc. are
provided by Yesterday's Lady. (The clothing is
never worn in a fashion show.) The presentation
includes an approximate 45 minute speaking
presentation. One and a half hours are needed
to dismantle the display.
This vast collection is centered around the
Victorian and Edwardian eras and spans 150 years to
the present. Shows have authentic examples
dresses, hats, shoes, stockings, purses, gloves, and
other accessories from the past decades. There
are many rare items seldom seen even in
museums. Yesterday's Lady has dress forms ,
hat stands, shoe stands, and other items to make the
elaborate display come alive. As she takes you
through her collection, Jan explains how the
Victorian woman dressed from head to toe,
demonstrating how and why they went to such extremes
in the name of vanity! The speaking
presentation is unscripted and casual, taking
questions, comments and laughter!
add shopping time in a tour?
Absolutely! Many tours can be planned
with the historical touring in the morning and
shopping in the afternoon. There are several
local stores that offer specials and discounts for
tour bus customers.
