What Would a Regency Lady Carry in Her Reticule?

WITH Candice Hern

Join Candice as she explains what a reticule was (called a ridicule during the Regency) and the items a lady would have carried in it! This presentation will be a comprehensive survey of items that might have been carried in a reticule, including cosmetics, coin purses, and vinaigrettes. The items our characters carry in their reticules can say a lot about them, and in this Monthly Tea, we will learn just what to put in a reticule!
