Tomorrow I take possession of TallulahBelle’s new location at 8004 Foster in Overland Park. I couldn’t be more proud of the passion and energy devoted by a small team of folks helping me design, build, and fill this space. I can’t wait to welcome you through the doors of our reinvented and reimaged TallulahBelle’s. The new location has allowed me to step back and view how Tallulahbelle’s has evolved and then create a location and reengage so many talented artists to fulfill this evolved vision! From the moment I take possession tomorrow until we open on February 17th (come celebrate with use! (hyperlink)) the team will infuse the space with art in all of it’s forms. The store itself will be thoughtfully crafted from the wood on the walls to the rugs on the floors. Then newly curated assessories, gifts and home decor from artists like (list artists) will be displayed.
Over these next few weeks, I invite you to come along on this journey. You will see the store be crafted by Flotsamist (hyperlink) and join me on a journey to meet the artists who create the newest pieces at TallulahBelle’s. For without them, none of this would be possible. Here’s a sneak peak at a few of the new kids on the block!
The jewelry Christina designs is a perfect balance of understated elegance and playfully whimsy. It can be worn everyday but is also the perfect accent for the big moments of your life. Each piece of jewelry begins with a story or a significant moment from Christina’s life. While I have spoken with Christina many times, I am anxious to meet her for the first time later this week.
When Jill was first exposed to the wonders of molten glass she immediately fell under its spell. Glass can do things that would be impossible with any other material, and although the learning process is quite difficult, once she was able to gain a little fluency, blowing glass became just plain fun. Jill tries to convey this fun by blending humor with fine craftsmanship in her designs. Each piece in Jill’s collection contains a deeper meaning that can either remain in the confines of your own heart of be shared with others.
