Compared to alot of places, St. Augustine can certainly be considered a challenging place to shop. I buy lots of things on the internet. Mostly sundries and such that I would have bought in a drugstore back in the day. Sometimes I “need” something specific like a teal mid century modern chair. After searching all of our local shops unsuccessfully, I will sometimes turn to internet shopping.There is nothing, and I mean nothing you cannot buy on the internet. (I found that chair on Amazon, and it is gorgeous!)
That being said….there are some things that should never…ever be purchased on the internet. I heard a commercial on the radio yesterday for a Blind company that made it sound so easy to measure your own windows, choose the right treatments, and then install your own blinds. “All you need is a cordless screw gun”. That may be fine for some people…people who have a background in interior design, can measure to the 16th of an inch, have broad knowledge of UV factors and insulation, and yes….own a cordless screw gun. Is that you?
Well, if it isn’t you are in luck. Brightside Blinds & Shutters has an actual showroom in St. Augustine. Here, you can look, feel, and touch the myriad of horizontal blinds, plantation shutters, solar roller shades,vertical blinds, draperies, and cornices on display. There are actual human beings at our shop, who will take the time to educate you, and help you choose the right window coverings for you own unique home.
Our services include “shop at home” and free estimates…but the fact that we have an actual location….”Brick and Mortar”, as they say speaks volumes about us. It shows that we have a commitment to this community. That we are here to stay. That you know where to find us. We were at our first location selling window coverings for nearly 25 years, and our current location in St. Augustine Beach, going on 10 years. That shows commitment. That shows that this is what we do. With us, you get it all. Fair prices, Best products, and by far the most superior service of anyone here in the oldest city. Sure, you could try and do it yourself, but with us just around the corner on Anastasia Island…why in the world would you?
