Ellie DeVito, owner of Love by Bella Fiore (1912 Palmer Avenue) is spreading the love into the empty storefront, where she will sell everything you’re missing about the old Plaza Too. (Following this?)
Says Devito, “We are shooting for a Plaza Too type store with children’s as well. We have the majority of Plaza Too’s old brands…we are opening for back to school and will be carrying over 35 kids lines. For women some of our brands are: Kors, Dolce Vita, Hunter, Cole Haan, Lucky, Coach, and over 60 more brands. We will also be carrying tons of accessories, scarves, hats, gloves, jewelry and handbags.”
She has hired the senior buyer from Plaza Too as a consultant, and several of the former staff. And will be open in early August.
Now…on the other side, there’s the old Larchmont Store…possibly, finally, ready for a new life. The building has been sold, and the new owner is “bringing it up to code,” so that presumably, it can be leased…construction has begun.
So how to celebrate? How about a Larchmont T-shirt? Write On! (1935 Palmer Avenue) is beautifully branding the Village (like the Larchmont Store did… see? it all comes full circle…) with a line of accessories that also includes mugs ($22- coming soon), hats ($20) and artwork- pen and inks, prints and photos by local talent.
