Painting classes. Artful necessities for home & garden.

Our Story

Brambles is a home decor and gift shop nestled in 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 a reclaimed pine furniture line, home and garden accessories, jewelry, gifts and much more.

In 2012, Sharon began offering beginner level painting classes. Find more information on the classes here

Our Style

Brambles style can be loosely defined as a little bit French Country 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.
