I'm all over that one!

Here's a fun site I've come across:

http://www.fashion-era.com/

It had great detail about different periods beginning at 1800 and going up to the 1980s.

And here's one about the Regency period

(Just in case anyone else has listed this period too!)

Is there a set number of items to send, or are we negotiating with our partners? I didn't see anything in the initial post, but I might have just missed it!

Opps you're right. I'd really like to have a set number to at least shoot for, people can always craft more Smiley I'll put it as 1 large and 2 small.

Seamshistoric you should sign up! You don't have to pick 4 it just for those of us that have problems narrowing down our favorite period we can list more.
