Welcome to Way Back When…
Welcome! Way Back When Is On The Move!
Come and check out our great “We cannot take it all with us” sale until May 31, 2016! Not only will you find books, unique one of a kind gifts made by local artisans such as jewelry, hats, masks, paintings and glassware, there are some sweet deals on antique and modern day furniture items, as well.
If you are planning a wedding, we will continue to offer historically inspired women’s and men’s wedding attire from our new on line shop, special order custom made items and an array of exciting classes in sewing and the making of other handicrafts and costumes. These classes will begin July 2, at a location to be announced.
Way Back When…Historic Bridal Fashions was created from two parts of a business. For over 20 years, owner Christine Bingham has researched, designed and created historic clothing for museums, re-enactors and historians alike. The last 5 years found Christine creating modern wedding dresses, reinventing vintage wedding attire and altering clothing in all bridal areas. Combining the two has created a unique niche in the market for those looking for alternative choices.
Patterns and Prep
Theme weddings (steampunk & goth), historic and vintage fashions, mardi gras, recreating your great grandmother’s dress, men’s fashions that reflect their inner fashionista, whatever you so desire (as long as it is moral, legal or worth the bail money) we will create your dream wedding attire!
Bridesmaids and groomsmen, flower girls and ring bearers, and if they so dare: parents of the bride and groom!
Artisan jewellry, hats, masks, accessories, books and gift baskets are also available in the shop.
