Collectors are invited to bring pre-1930 era clothing and family photographs as well as quilts and jewelry for evaluation. Cost will be $8 per evaluation or $35 for five items. Dating of full body ancestral photographs will be $8 for up to three. The event is a benefit for the museum.

Setnik, former Historic District merchant along with husband, Bob (Setnik’s In Time Again which closed in 2006) began volunteering in the costume department at the Folsom History Museum when she retired three years ago.

“I love it, they have lots of wonderful outfits from 1860-1920s,” she said.

A part-time antiques dealer for 15 years coupled with her years of experience researching Victorian women’s fashion prepared her well for this challenging assignment.

Setnik grew up in Southern California where she graduated with honors in history from California State University, Northridge. Drawn to the study of American history, she focused on American architecture and women’s social history and clothing during the Victorian period.

After extensive study of 19th century fashion, beauty, household, etiquette and medical literature, in 2000, Setnik authored her first book about women’s social history and costume, “Victorian Costume for Ladies, 1860-1900.”

In 2012, she authored her second work, “Victorian Fashions for Women and Children, Society’s Impact on Dress.”

“I’ve always been a very inquisitive person as well as a born researcher. I started collecting photos of women in period dress and then wondered when the photos were taken, as well as why women dressed as they did. I wasn’t able to find all the answers through literature so I began researching original Victorian documents — the results of which are in my books,” said Setnik.

For the Folsom History Museum’s “Out of Grandma’s Trunk” mini evaluation day on Sutter Street, Setnik will be available to date photographs of women from 1850-1920s and children from 1850-1900; women’s undergarments and clothing from 1850 through the 1920s.

She encourages patrons to bring photographs showing entire outfits. Dating of men’s photographs will not be available as they are not one of her research specialities and she notes that men’s clothing changed comparatively little over the years.

Setnik will be joined by esteemed appraisers Dawn Licker and Roman Oleynik.
