Welcome to Williams
where Pioneer and Prairie
clothes for Girls and Ladies is all we do.
With Little House on the
Prairie and Little Women as my guide,
the clothes of
the prairie were designed to be plain, simple, practical and durable.
there were the fancy dresses for the most affluent,
but by and large, simplicity was the name of the game.
All items are made by
hand with the best quality products available today.
Beginning in 1995 and catering
to the local community, especially for one room schoolhouse events,
designs were developed specifically for the 1800's.
From the simplest to the fanciest,
you will find it here.
about the website are bits of historical trivia that I have collected over the years.
Some of the information I found in my own research when I opened my shop years ago in downtown Rochester, Michigan.
Some of the information (in particular the "One Little Button"), came directly
from a gal who is part of the historical button
community and spends her spare
time - in historical costume - speaking on the subject to school groups and service organizations.
I was awestruck the day she came into the shop to show me a button that came from an Army uniform
from the Revolutionary War.
I hope you enjoy your visit.
