Brambles is a home decor and gift shop nestled in the heart of the quaint, historic riverfront town of Occoquan, Virginia. Brambles opened its doors in May 1997. The shop is run by husband and wife team, Dan and Sharon Prophet. The store opened initially as a showroom for owner and artist in residence, Sharon Prophet’s, hand-painted vintage furniture and paintings. Over the next few years the inventory quickly expanded to slipcovered furniture, a reclaimed pine furniture line, home and garden accessories, jewelry, gifts and much more. Brambles outgrew its small space at the edge of town and soon moved into the larger space it currently resides in the town’s center. A graduate in Fine Arts from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, Sharon designed interiors for many years before opening Brambles. Brambles style can be loosely defined as a little bit country French and a little bit garden style. Walk into the store an you will find yourself surrounded by a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Browse through garden and topiary delights as the sound of a statuary fountain trickles in the background. Gaze through reproduction vintage chandeliers at vibrantly hued hand blown glass and stained-glass window adornments. Try on beautifully handcrafted engraved sterling silver rings, bracelets and watches and be inspired. Brambles inventory of furniture and accessories for home and garden is ever changing, so please so stop in often and stay a while!
