Gala spotlights vintage weddings
A Vintage Wedding Gala hosted by Wapakoneta Antique and Specialty Shops (WASS) will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 5, at Village Green in Wapakoneta.
WASS President Landa Tomlinson said spring is the best season to host wedding-related retail events.
“Right now is just in time for the summer weddings that are going on,” Tomlinson said. “We’ve had girls coming in the shop with weddings starting in May through August and into the fall.”
Tomlinson, who is also co-owner of Casa Chic, said a couple of women came into her shop last Saturday around noon looking for vintage-inspired wedding goods.
“They said they were going to go through town,” Tomlinson said. “They didn’t come back to our shop until a quarter to 5 to buy some more of the things that they had held back ... and they had bags galore and already had their car filled with stuff.”
