Some more:

Angelic Visions Antiques - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Folsom Creed/179/206/3003
Bentley Furniture - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bentley Homes East/116/74/803 (although, many of their living rooms are modern)
 

Marketplace Only:

Shadow Dreams - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/52254
Indulge - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/106362
 

Also Maison de Madame Marie. Expensive! But some really low Li parts. Victorians used revival of historic styles and loved ornaments, so I think these pieces look well mixed in with cheaper items like Apple Fall. Well, cheaper... if you shopped the Black Friday sale.

plus Marketplace. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/219866

Ordem da Rosa, only Marketplace. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/114177

But you can see the Ordem da Rosa curtains in Maison de Madame Marie's inworld store.

Not strictly "in theme" but fancier than most modern styles...just discovered that LISP has 3LI mesh draperies in the Marketplace in four versions, very cheap @ $L25 and the colors go well with the Victorian palette. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/products/search?utf8=✓&search[category_id]=6&search[maturity_level]=GMA&search[keywords]=lisp+drapes

I haven't been following this thread as I am still on the beach, but if not mentioned before there are SOME (it isn't a Victorian store) items at Florix.  There is also a nice free gift of canisters at the landing point.   The items I looked at had reasonable LODs and triangle counts.  Only checked a few :D

You may want to add the currently MP-only store Antique Artistry : https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/5573

Lots of cheapies and dollarbies, low-LI items and lots of it fitting in a victorian theme.

How could I get the name of that store so wrong???

Good catch on Antique Artistry. Wasn't extremely impressed with their upholstered furniture, but there seems to be some good detail in those kitchens, and period kitchens are not that common, let alone period MESH kitchens for $L99. And you could make those into contemporary kitchens done in a period style, just by adding a new stove and a modern refrigerator.

I made this for The Doyle, but I think it can be used in anything:

For anyone interested, I put it in my alt's MP; Alyona Chernov.

Since I scolded someone else, I have to be fair and do the same here -- you aren't really supposed to advertise you own stuff.  If you take a picture of a room and comment on the stuff, you can comment that you made such and such pieces.  If people ask, you can then tell them where to find them.  However, you aren't really supposed to just take pics of things you made and say you are selling it and where to buy it.

That is true, which is why I did not provide a link. At other times I've done the same I am always asked "where can I find it" - so I tell my alt's name. I'm not saying go get it or even go look at it. Only that I made it. :)

Dysfunctionality has a nice two piece antique sofa and chair which would look nice in the Victorian houses for Fifty Linden Friday.

I just plonked them down there for a photo. I know they don't go with the rest of my decor 😉

I stopped playing second life for quite a long time after I married my sl partner in real life. However I've now resubscribed and got myself a couple of these cute victorians.  I've been making the round to the furniture stores.  I own quite a bit of furniture from before I quit sl so catchching up hasn't been to awfully bad for my pocket book.  I've finished one house, now I'm decorating another. All my arcade gacha crap has finally payed itself forward.  I bought all that crap for years and never really knew what to do with it, now I can rez it in these linden houses and decorate with it!!

I just had a blast at Dysfunctionality, thank you Elyeah!  I got the sofa set and several other victorian pieces.  I wasn't going to buy anything new, but these were to perfect to pass up. I didn't even get all the things I was drooling over.  🤗

Is it mod?  Purple really isn't my color.

I don't think they are mod. I wish they had different colours although I do love purple.

I am pretty sure that they have other colors, just not on FLF.  I found the tables by doing an area search and they had a gazillion texture choices. 

 

Their name actually says "special FLF color" or something like that :D

Another place to find Victorian and earlier furnishings - There is an entire role-play community, Antiquities. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Antiquity Texas/143/48/1555 - This link is to their information center, which offers free antique clothing and accessories, teleports to their different areas, and even information on how to get a free pirate ship! They have a community shop at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Antiquity Texas/85/190/24.  Unfortunately several shops that used to be in Antiquity Heights are now gone, but Art of Saint Bruno is still in the Marketplace. 

I recommend visiting Antiquities. I notice that they have tour guides available, but you could just don some free period clothing and wander around on your own.

There are lots of these sites but I found this one particularly helpful for colouring the walls of the Victorian houses. If you type 'victorian' into the search bar, it will give a choice of colour schemes and the RBG numbers.

In case anyone is interested, great decor for our Victorians. It's part of the 50L Fridays at LISP Bazaar (I'm not part of the store team, just someone loving great decor and sharing tips 😃)

By chance found this incredible store the other week off of someone's blog which has very elaborate and highly detailed furniture.  I had a heck of a time locating it because the blogger referred to it as "C&G" but it's name is actually China.Goodies. I am a very good sleuth. 

Creator is an architect and everything is gorgeous but extremely expensive so be prepared. I also loved the shopping experience - feels like walking in a museum. Furniture is old world style French/Italian, lots of collectible type pieces. Victorians loved chachkas and this store is filled with them; great for finding a piece of importance but not for furnishing your home entirely at all unless you live in a palace :P 

On the Marketplace also but I do recommend going to the inworld store to see everything in person as the photos don't do them justice. 

FYI not so sure how good the creator is about getting back to you if there's a problem, if she's active or not as I wrote her days ago about a piece that had no price on it that I wanted to buy and haven't heard back from her yet so be sure you really want what you are purchasing.
