Display of Bracelets and Assorted Jewelry
March 6 - This Wednesday we visited Chrison & Bellina a boutique nestled in next to Tabby's Burgers on Audrey Avenue.  The building is right next to a walkway connecting Audrey Avenue to the Town parking lot to the north - providing patrons with convenient access to parking.  The deceptively small exterior gives a quaint look to this boutique that is bursting with unique gifts for you or a friend!  The front room is filled with a wide array of jewelry and accessories ranging from scarves to hats to shoes and more.  Every wall and surface is covered with unique pieces and it is best to take several minutes just to take it all in!

As you move further into the store the next room is bright, crisp and airy with many home furnishings on display.  In the center of the room is a table set with several table settings which are all for sale.  The walls are covered in shelving displaying kitchen utensils, cheese platters, various types of cookbooks, glassware and tea cups among others.

Final Room

The final room has a wide array of clothes, bath essentials and various knick knacks lining the walls and covering every available surface.  Their stock is also continuously being updated, so if you have had the opportunity to browse through their selection it might be time to take a second look!
