Beautiful, Eclectic, Lovely, Luscious and Affordable! We are bella of Cape Cod - our main mission is based on a simple idea: offer gorgeous jewelry and accessories to friends and family at a great price! Everything $25 and under...Can you stand it?
We began selling jewelry through home parties in the fall of 2004. Our prices left shoppers asking when and where they could buy more bella! We rented a booth at Dick and Ellie's summer flea market in May 2005 to continued rave reviews. To enable our off Cape summer customers to shop us in the off season, www.bellaofcapecod.com was created in the Fall 2005. In early 2006, we offered our customers virtual, online eparties - a new twist on the home party horizon. Eparty hostesses earn 20% of their party sales in bella bucks to shop our site!
Our success provided a platform for us to pay it forward, which resulted in the introduction of our fundraising program in March 2007. We donate 20% of a day's sales to your special cause. Please visit our Fundraising page for more information, or to request a date for your event.
As we continued to grow our online business, it was apparent we needed more space. We had overtaken our family rooms and garages and needed more room to grow. We celebrated our Hyannis showroom's grand opening June 2007. We opened two days a week, then four, then seven days and evenings a week. Our Hyannis showroom/website office was a full-fledged retail store! We opened our second Hyannis location June 2010 - can you stand it? Our 448 Main Street store was a huge hit, and offered our Cape Cod visitors with a new place to shop. April 2011 bella of Cape Cod expanded once again - a second retail store at 585 Main Street, Chatham. In June 2012, we opened the doors to our third retail store at 155 Main Street, Falmouth.
As we grew, we really began to "get noticed". Parenting Magazine recommended us as one Main Street Falmouth's best shops in their feature article "Top 10 Family Beach Destinations" in May 2013. We were also honored as Cape Cod Magazine's "Best of Beads and Baubles" for 2013. We're so excited for the possibilities 2014 will offer!
bella of Cape Cod was awarded Cape Cod SCORE's 2008 Small Business Owners of the Year Award. Read more about this honor in the June 4, 2008 issue of the Cape Cod Times.
Our online eparty and fundraising efforts continue - we've donated tens of thousands of dollars to our customers' charities of choice. It's with great pride that we give back to our customers in this meaningful program. Our fundraising program has even been featured in Web Marketing for Dummies and Internet Retailer Magazine!
We're constantly searching for great jewelry and handbags we can offer to you at a great price, in most cases, 50-60% off retail prices. We take pride in our products creating "the look" for less, and we stand behind our line 100%. We love customer input as to what products to keep an eye out for...let us know if you're looking for something special. And, please keep in mind our motto: "If you snooze, you lose" - as terrific items get turned around very quickly. Many items cannot be reordered...so please, pick up that item you love the first time around.
A sincere thank you to all our customers who continue to share bella of Cape Cod with their friends, family and coworkers. We appreciate your business, your support and all the GREAT word of mouth advertising.
We hope you enjoyed our site. Please share our site with the special people in your life.
