Gothic High Tea and Vicky Walks

Happy Victoria Day! I hope that you got the day off and that you’re relaxing on a patio in the sun somewhere. We will be open for our holidays hours (11am – 5pm) so if you’re in the area you should drop by and say hello.  If you’re not in the area then you should plan to come visit anyways! There’s lots of great patios in Gastown waiting for you to come enjoy a fruity beverage on after you’ve gone shopping for a new corset outfit. You could make a day of it.

Victoria Day always makes me think of the Gothic High Tea.  For years, we hosted a mini fashion show with tea and goodies. Unfortunately, the store started to get too busy to host the Gothic High Tea anymore. It can get a bit chaotic when you have models running around, people shop and snacks all in the same space.

We missed doing the fashion show though so a few years ago we decided to do a virtual fashion show with living mannequins, Jenna and Dan.  It was great. We also tried to stream it but it was long before the days of Periscope, Facebook Live and Instagram Live so we failed miserably. But if you look hard enough you can find our commentary while we were trying to stream. Guess what! I have the virtual fashion show available and ready for you to watch.  subscribe to our YouTube channel so you never miss a virtual fashion show again!

What are you up to this Victoria Day? Let us know in the comments below.
