… bring the fashion to Jonesborough TN once a year; they call it prom time! Well, style yes but fashion needs a bit of explanation.
Jonesborough is a semi-quaint town of approximately 5,469 people with a median household income of $39,000+ (according to the 2009 census.) The roots of many people of this quaint town go back to civil war times and, they are products of down-to-earth people who provided their means of survival on their own property. Semi-quaint is appropriate because there are still a few farmers left in this area; retired, but still caring for a cow and a small just-for-us-two garden. (Their children are all grown and have moved on into lives of their own, elsewhere.) Early on, money was not available for such frivolity as a special dress for the prom or a tux and the need was not there either. So, is it wrong to understand that ‘fashion’ might not be the priority object of conversation in this town of Jonesborough?
Over many years, teenagers of this area have emerged from bib overalls to floor length gowns for prom time, developing their own style for a special occasion ‘once a year.’ The prom dresses come in many colors, styles, and brands. Some of the young adults of the town are even part of the ‘online shoppers world’ as their means of getting what they want and need … another advancement for this quaint town.
If you are into ‘small town visiting’, pop by Jonesborough TN and breath in some of the culture of the area … you decide about their personalized style. It is a refreshing piece of beauty for this day and time, especially during prom time where ‘fashion and style’ reign.
