Being in the Antiques business for the past few decades, we’ve sold our fair share of “wedding decor”. Wedding themes like Gone with the Wind and Sherlock Holmes to the Roaring 20’s and even the Flowery 70’s. But it seems lately that one theme has been popular for a lot of our couples. Call it what you may… Vintage, Country, Shabby Rustic… these barn style themes are all the rage.
Brides come in with a vision in their head and a list in their hand. Within minutes our counter begins to fill up with crates and ladders, windows, doors and suitcases. It doesn’t seem to matter how elegant or rustic, lace tablecloths are still in demand. And at the top of every Brides list… Ball jars!
With the 2016 wedding season upon us, brides and bridesmaids have started flowing in to share their ideas and search for their treasures. As the brides come and go and the themes change, I can honestly say that it’s been an honor for Main Street Shoppes to be included in a small part of such a Big day!
