michael kors clearance handbags It s not that often that a person needs a crown. But during , every Carnival organization has a king and a queen, and every royal must be crowned. And in Louisiana, Tanya Cain points out, Every single city has its own Mardi Gras celebration. That s a lot of crowns. In fact, Tanya and her husband, Tommy Cain, the masterminds behind Mobile s for more than 25 years, have never counted how many crowns they create. But each year, Tanya orders 250 of the purple boxes that the crowns are packaged in when they leave the shop. With Fat Tuesday and the end of Carnival season in sight, the Cains can breathe a sigh of relief. Their work for the 2014 season is done, pretty much, except for the occasional emergency, such as the frantic phone call from the queen of a krewe in Shreveport, La., earlier this week who had realized she needed a gold crown instead of a silver one to match her king s. Tonya overnighted the crown to Louisiana, and the problem was quickly solved. But soon, they ll be thinking toward 2015. As soon as one Mardi Gras ends, we begin the next, Tanya said. In fact, at least two crowns are ready for next year in a couple of Louisiana organizations, including one that belongs to a New Orleans Saints cheerleader. In fact, most of their business comes from outside the Mobile area, Tanya said. Usually, customers are seen by appointment for an individual consultation. Tanya hangs a Sorry, we re closed sign on the door to give the customer privacy and all the time he or she needs. Dynasty Collection is located in the same place where it began, on Old Shell Road in the heart of Spring Hill. The atmosphere is elegant, with a chandelier beautifully showcasing the sparkle of the crowns, scepters, earrings and necklaces. To the left, sitting on glass shelves, are rows of crowns in various designed for men and women. The crowns that come with adjustable bands start at 0, while custom orders, made to perfectly fit a person s head, are usually ,000 and up, Tanya said. She encourages customers to try on the crowns in front of the full-length mirror. Often the whole family comes with the future royal. This is something they ve waited for, Tanya said. It s a big deal to them. They live and breathe Mardi Gras. Tanya then takes them on a tour behind the scenes at the back of the shop, where her mother, Jane Rhinewalt, sets the stones from a spool of Swarovski crystals. Everything that leaves the shop has been set in a tray by my mom, she said. Tanya s father, Jim Rhinewalt, and her husband Tommy work together to design and build the crowns and other items. They really get excited about the fact that it s all family, said Tanya. They love that personal touch. Things just aren t done like that anymore. The king or queen and his or her entourage sits down in fancy chairs around the round marble conference table to discuss what they need with Tanya, who is polite and sweet yet businesslike, and gregarious Tommy, who is the creative force behind the business. One of Tanya s favorite parts of her job is watching her husband give scepter lessons to soon-to-be royals. He teaches them how to be king and queen and puts them in the right frame of mind, she said. After all, he or she is the reason for the ball. That night, he or she is an actor, portraying the king or queen, said Tommy. Thousands of people are waiting for their arrival. There s not a Broadway show that could rival these Mardi Gras balls. This Sunday evening, when the Krewe of Bacchus rolls in New Orleans, King Hugh Laurie (of House fame) will be wearing a crown made by Dynasty Collection. So will the king and queen of Washington, D.C. s Mardi Gras ball. We really just have a fun business, all year long, Tommy said. For just a little store over on Old Shell Road, we re not doing too bad, you know?
