This summer, we told you about local jewelry maker Brandy McNair and all of her fabulous creations with her business Bella Vita Jewelry.
She’s on her way to a new location in SoMa, but until then, McNair is opening up shop in the Lafayette Building downtown until renovations are complete. The plan is for the temporary spot to be open by Oct. 30 in time for all the Holiday House festivities, then host a grand opening on Nov. 14 from 5-8 p.m. for the 2nd Friday Art Night.
The shop will not only sell jewelry, but also items like soaps, lotions, candles and vintage home decor. According to the Bella Vita blog, tentative retail hours will be 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Thursday through Friday, Saturday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. and by appointment. Call (479)-200-1824 for details.
If you can’t wait until then, you can check out her stuff at Box Turtle; Paper, Scissors, Little Rock; or The Good Earth Garden Center. We’ll just be browsing (lusting after) the items on the Bella Vita site until the doors open.
