What's your fancy this winter? If it includes the year’s latest trends and captivating accessories, then Suffield’s new upscale shop, Moxy Boutique Fine Jewelry and Accessories, is the place to be.
Andrea Sullivan and Todd Gallis unveiled the boutique on Nov. 23, showcasing a wide range of jewelry, scarves and wraps, hats, handbags, gloves (including texting gloves) and much more. Upon entering, you’ll immediately know you’re in the right place if you’re looking to add some color and style to your winter wardrobe.
The boutique, the only one of its kind in Suffield, is conveniently located in the Mountain Road Marketplace in the center of town.
“It’s just us,” Sullivan said, “There’s no other jeweler, no boutique.”
This may explain the store’s success throughout the holiday season, particularly with the shop’s smaller boutique items.
“We sold some diamond pieces, but mostly the boutique did pretty well,” she said.
The popularity of the store can also be attributed to Sullivan’s expertise. She once owned and operated the Diamond Gallery in Glastonbury before closing the store in 2004 when she moved to Florida. While there, Sullivan ran an online store. Now a Suffield resident, Sullivan, along with partner Gallis, consider Suffield home, as well as a “great town.”
Of the new store, Sullivan noted, “We have some hand-made pieces from local designers, some hand-knitted items. We’re getting away from the mass-produced items. We also have faux fur products, and we’re a full-service jeweler. We do custom work – I have a jeweler who can make anything from scratch. We also do repairs, have watch batteries, et cetera.”
Although the focus is currently on winter, “new things are coming in all the time,” noted Sullivan.
Spring will be here before you know it, and Moxy Boutique will surely have a variety of chic new items gracing their front window and a shop full of the season’s best colors, fabrics and styles to choose from.
