Victoriana Lady Lisa was invited to present her Victorian Mourning show to the Susquehanna Mysteries Alliance's annual event Death: Victorian Style. Everyone was in awe of my authentic collection, circa 1850-1920, and professional presentation of Victorian Fashions & Etiquette.Photos by John Thomas Grant.

Deb Beamer is the owner of the Mechanicsburg Mystery Bookshop, and along with Melissa Telesha, co-founded the Susquehanna Mysteries Alliance aka SMA, a group of like-minded individuals whose interest include the mystical, magical, and perhaps historically strange. A lot of time & planning went into the event, held in the historic Mt. Holly Inn on Rt. 34 in Mount Holly Springs, PA. I can't wait for next years event!
