SNAPSHOT SERIES: Bela Shehu of NINObrand

The second Tuesday of August is nearly here, which means we’re just about ready to open our doors for Sweet Surrender, our monthly NINObrand shopping soirée. We couldn’t be more jazzed to host you for an evening of midsummer delights, complete with a tasting of some lovely honey-wine from Sap House Meadery (thanks to our friends at the Tamworth Lyceum) and custom fittings by Bela herself.

As a preview for tomorrow night’s event, we’re giving you a little peek behind the curtain at our resident lady of luxe. We’ve extracted these words and images straight from the source in hopes of enticing you to join us tomorrow eve (mark your calendars, 6-9 pm). In the meantime, enjoy these gems…
