A Gem of a Boutique in Huntington
Local resident and owner Kathleen Murphy dedicated the store to her mother, who she says represented the true meaning of bella -- "a beautiful and talented woman who shared her gifts and love with everyone she met."
Bella shares space with Nail Nook Day Spa. Murphy believes the dual concept brings a shopping opportunity to busy women who want luxury, convenience and value. The boutique recreates the relaxing atmosphere of the day spa, where customers can browse until their hearts' content and always find an affordable little treasure to take home.
Murphy's innate talent and eye for beauty is evident throughout the store. The merchandise is truly unique, special and beautiful. Evening bags topped with flowers, one-of-kind sparkling necklaces and dazzling earrings, handcrafted stationery and broach-adorned hats are just some of the many items that grace the interesting space at Bella.
"I like to support my community and for that reason, I buy jewelry, stationery and other items from local craftspeople," says Murphy.
Since opening, Bella Boutique has also donated a percentage of sales to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the tsunami relief effort in Asia. For more information on Bella Boutique, contact Kathleen Murphy at (631) 424-4388.
