Millinery Shop

Today I visited the millinery. I noticed that all of the gowns and accessories were very big unlike clothes today. The women inside told me that it could only take 50 to 60 hours when making a gown. When I got inside I saw that there was a lot of softly colored silks and cottons. I observed a young milliner sewing a silk yellow gown that looked like one you would see at a ball. She sewed slowly and carefully being cautious not to mess up. The millinery shop smelled of warm silk. In the milliner you can buy accessories such as hats, gowns, and coats. I would not go to this store because since I am a man I go to a different store and buy different clothes. You would go to the store and pick out the material of fabric and the pattern of the fabric. Then you would get fitted for the clothes until you can then go about with your day.

Peyton Randolph's House

Today I visited Peyton Randolph's house. It was one of the biggest houses I had ever seen in Virginia. Whenever I enter my uncle Peyton's house it looks very expensive due to his very high gentry status. I gazed at the beautiful china, chimney glass, and the intricately patterned carpets and wall papers that had been imported from thousands of miles away. I loved how elegant everything was. I saw mirrors with gold linings on them and glossy, polished spice and wig cabinets.
