a journey toward non-traditional wedded bliss, with style

Neighborhood Window Shopping July 6, 2008

I adore our new neighborhood. The Short North is the type of place where a historic factory turned retail building houses an art gallery, bicycle/clothes boutique, ethnic restaurant, pseudo porn store and vegan bakery in a cozy little row. Definitely not what you would expect from a city smack dab in the middle of acres of cows and Amish communities, but Columbus seems to get steadily cooler the longer I live here.

I pass this home decor store called Collier West almost everyday, whether on a run or one of our jaunts to any of the above stores, and their window displays are always awe inspiring. Even though the reflection from the window spoils the effect a little, I thought this all white antique look was a lovely take on a common wedding theme. My favorite element is probably the branch chandelier, but I also think the gown is very pretty even though it is a little more princess than my usual taste.

    As an original Columbusian…Columbusite… er…. resident of Columbus I tend to just think about the town as being the ‘burbs. But I do love the Short North especially the North Market, Yankee Trader, and Burly Girl. Although when I used to live in C-bus there were rumours of a Short North Gang… I laughed, I mean it’s Columbus, but maybe that’s part of the urbanization?

    yeah, I heard a rumor about that too but the only large groups of people I see wandering around this neighborhood are usually very well dressed gay men 🙂
