Why Not Then is dedicated to the study and preservation of historic items, and using that knowledge to accurately represent history to the public. The blog post catalogs artifacts in my personal collection, which is mostly women’s and/or costume history from the 1750s-1940s. I hope to make it through cataloging every artifact I own with it’s own blog post as some point!
There will be thematic posts for a while- as I will be going through my collection one acid free box at a time!
This site also has hints and how-tos for collectors, museum professions, and reenactors/living historians.
The owner of Why Not Then is Stormi Souter-Brown. Stormi is a historian, author, and re-eenactor.
