I learned quite a few things at Strawbery Banke. One thing I learned was that the wealthy people gave poor people a Thanksgiving basket which they filled with many things. They filled a pillow case with stuff like flour, rice, sugar, Indian meal and tied into a section from keeping the ingredients from mixing. The people also filled the baskets with meat, pies, knitted items and other small foods items. I also learned that wealthy people in the late 1800's had very large napkins. Mrs. Goodwin said “Would you rather wash 6 layers of dress or a large napkin.” I found this very interesting that children weren't allowed in the parlor until they were 16 years old.
