I love love love fun accessories, especially fun inexpensive costume jewelry. My favorite place to get the BEST accessories is such a little gem (pun intended!!) A Village Gift Shop in Glendale. They have a bunch of fun new jewelry lines in, as well as a bunch of new handbags! Here’s some info on what they just got in!
Bourbon and Boweties – A jewelry line featuring the signature bangle bracelets, along with necklaces and clasp bracelets. All the jewelry is made in America. The company was founded in 2012 by Carley Ochs, a young jewelry designer, who designed the bangle bracelet and first sold it through a gift shop in Charleston, SC. The company has grown tremendously over the past 3 years. All the bracelets are made with hand selected semiprecious stones, geodes, smokey quartz, lava stones, shells, turquoise, jade, polished coral, peruvian opal, agates and many more natural stones all wrapped with gold plated wire. Although the stones come from around the world they are all individually “Made by PROUD Southern hands”. A colorful collection of styles and colors is featured at A Village Gift Shop.
Hobo the Original – Hobo is natural leather handbags, wallets and wristlets that are designed to be beautiful, purposeful and classics that never go out of style. Company was started by Toni Ray in 1991 and is now run by her daughter Koren and son-in-law David Brewer. Hobo’s philosophy is quality and cool never go out of style, and their array of leather colors and prints includes something to please everyone. The Lauren wallet is a great example of purpose meets beautiful and is proudly featured along with many other styles at A Village Gift Shop.
Dona Bela Shreds – Another unique item in our collection, the Dona Bela Shreds is upcycled cloth neckwear that is the summer’s great fashion find. It is a necklace/scarf that is lightweight, easy to wear and made of jersey cotton remnant fabric. Colorful and comfortable, the Shred is the perfect complement to summer’s t-shirts and sundresses. The company was started in 2010 by Allison Davidson in her hometown of Des Moines, Iowa, and all the Shred products are Made in America.
Lenora Dame – American made jewelry line based in Philadelphia, PA, Lenora Dame caters to the woman who appreciates a “haute bohemian” style. Started in 2001 by former advertising executive Lenora Dame, the jewelry features bold designs, playful looks and vintage materials in its collection of bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Known nationally and internationally, Lenora Dame jewelry is an exciting addition to A Village Gift Shop.
