Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much did chimney sweeps get paid in Victorian times?

A: Chimney sweeps in Victorian England earned about ten shillings. One shilling was equal to 12 pence, and 10 shillings multiplied by 12 pence comes to 120 pence. So, Victorian chimney sweeps earned 120 pence, which in today's currency  converts to just under $1.65 USD.

Q: How do you create a chimney sweep costume?

A: Choose loose-fitting clothes and apply a misting of black spray paint in spots to mimic the appearance of soot. Dust black face powder on your cheeks. Attach pipe cleaners to the end of an old broom handle to form a spiky circle, then spray paint it black to copy a chimney sweep’s tool.

Q: Why are chimney sweeps believed to be lucky?

A: There are three legends about the luckiness of chimney sweeps. One saved King William’s life and was invited to a royal wedding. One fell from a roof and was rescued by a woman who fell in love with him, and one rescued King George III, who then decreed all chimney sweeps lucky.
