“Look look Duncan, ... someone’s coming!”
“Is that a Royal Coach I see, circling the North Reserve Business Center searching for Echo Home Furnishings?” Duncan assumes his usual “someone’s coming position” ... curiously peeking out from the corner of my sales desk.
But of course, Kate and William sent their people with their official Royal Wedding Gift Registry list. I know, I know ... it seems odd to me too, that of all places they would choose my little shop for their Montana Wedding headquarters - but I guess that even Royalty is growing to appreciate the trendy, eclectic decorating style that second hand furniture offers.
Here are a sampling of items they chose.
This chicken cutting board came all the way from their Dad, Prince Charles’s gift shop over in Highgrove. I don’t know if it is for sentimental reasons or if they ran out of them in their own shop - but they want it back.
The glass cookie jar wedding cake. Well ... I’ve offered and offered to all you brides out there, but now it’s on Kate’s wish list, need I say more? ... Except, I think our English Springer model is looking for an invite!
Every well appointed palace needs a little bit of rustic, so they chose one of our barbed wire “Heartware” hearts to place near the moat of their new digs.
Of course I've decided to give them one of my handmade lamp shades, so the lighting department is already taken care of, but there’s still a little bit of time (April 29th is the big day) and plenty of gifts left on their list. So, swing by and let Duncan and I give you a hand. Also, this week only, I am offering free gift wrap and shipping (by ship) for the Royal occasion.
The only remaining question .... Who in the world plans their wedding on a Friday ??? Hummmmm.
Happy Royal Wedding Week!
