Beneath blues skies an historic gem in the crown of Beaufort's Sea Islands beckons you to step into a bygone era. Pick Pocket Plantation is a mid-19th century plantation meticulously restored. Furnished with period antiques and surrounded by classic farm structures Pick Pocket takes one back to simpler times. Open for tours Monday through Saturday visitors will be taken through the house by the Victorian Ladies, Miss Millie and Miss Kim, in period costume and then stroll the plantation grounds to view the many outbuildings.

From Bodice to Bloomers

Today at Pick Pocket Plantation a special event, From Bodice to Bloomers,
was performed.
Guests learned about a Victorian lady's wardrobe from the inside out.
A display of hats and bonnets.

The program began with the unmentionables,
you know,

Guests were presented with information about a lady's under garments beginning with
a chemise and bloomers...

then the corset...

chemisette and hoops...


and finally the bodice, skirt, hat, and parasol.

After the presentation guests toured the plantation house and enjoyed tea and orange-cranberry-vanilla scones with homemade apple butter.
