Stop in and check out Bella By The Sea on Pine Avenue in the City Of Anna Maria. Bella By The Sea carries a wide variety of clothes geared for modern women who are all about comfort, and also offers home furnishings that are Renewed, Refurbished, or Recycled. Named after her English Bulldog Bella, Jo-Ann Lefner opened Bella By The Sea because she was inspired by the quaint northern end of Anna Maria Island. Jo-Ann wanted to add a store that would stay within the charm of Anna Maria.
When I asked Jo-Ann how she came up with the name for the store she told me all about her dog Bella and how bulldogs first came into the Lefner family years ago with Dauber, the leader off the pack. Then there was Martha Stewart (who really was on the Martha Stewart Show!). Next to join the family was Cooper, who had a children’s book written about his life “You Are Who You Are” The book can be purchased and autographed at Bella’s store. So, when Bella arrived it was only fitting that she has the store named after her. Bella and the history of all the Lefner bullies will be featured in the July issue of the New Barker, Florida’s Top Dog Magazine.
Stop in to say hello next time you’re on Pine Avenue. Bella By The Sea is open 10 AM to 5PM Monday through Saturday.
