Video interview with Autumn at Dickens Fair on men's corsets.

Beth Spotswood cameto the Dickens Christmas Fair at the Cow Palace for the first time and seemed to be amazed at all the grown-up fun to be had. She did a sweet little interview with Dark Garden owner, Autumn Adamme, on the corset wearing habits of men in Dickensian times as well as today. Her videographer, also named Beth, got some lovely shots of Dark Garden's huge fully-staffed holiday shop that springs to life weekends. She seemed particularly taken with the models in the Windows, of course, as well as Five & Diamonds cute stripy pirate knickers.
