“Love, love, love this store! It is absolutely gorgeous and they have such a wonderful selection. From pottery to jewelry to bedding, they have it all! Plus, their staff is so helpful! I was looking for a gift and they went above and beyond to suggest things that hadn't even crossed my mind! Thanks for your excellent service and selection!”

Anna - Germantown, TN

"Awesome shopping experience! I really don’t like shopping, but the very nice people at Bella Vita made it so easy :). They helped me find perfect gifts for three of the people on my Christmas list in about 20 minutes. And they wrapped them for me! Love this place!!!"

Jonathan - Memphis, TN

"I always enjoy my time when I come to Bella Vita. Love the friendly people and the beautiful store!"

Sandra - Collierville, TN

"This store is a true gem hidden in the heart of Germantown. They have an awesome collection of gifts, but my favorites are the candles and room fragrances. It was definitely worth my time to stop in and check out their beautiful shop. The staff was very friendly helpful! A+++"

Michael - Memphis, TN

"Such a pleasant shopping experience! They take time with each customer, which is not very common anymore. Will definitely return soon!"

Vickie - Germantown, TN

"We live out of state and only get to visit a few times a year--we absolutely LOVE Bella Vita and their precious ladies. Several even recognize us from our visits. My husband makes it a point to place a big BV order for his clients each year simply because we have such an excellent experience with them. Thanks for your excellent customer service and thoughtfulness!"

Meet the Tribe

It’s high time you get to know us beyond our names.

Stephanie
Owner

Owner, visionary, and the girl in charge, I’ve owned Bella Vita since 2001! You can usually find me in the store checking on customers, employees, shipments and everything in between. When I’m not at Bella Vita, I love squeezing in a little extra time with my two munchkins, Sage and Steele. You can contact me directly at stephanie@shopbellavita.com.

Brent
Owner / Partner

A wearer of many hats, Brent is the co-owner and reason you are reading our website right now. He manages our web office, works with our software vendors, and handles all things tech. He ensures that our store and site stays up and running, both smoothly and effectively on a daily basis. When he’s technical wheels aren’t turning, he enjoys spending quality time with Stephanie and their kiddos, Sage and Steele.

Laura
Product Manager / Assistant Buyer

Laura is our go-to girl for working with vendors to get products in and on time. A Bella Vita girl since 2012, Laura handles our daily lists of orders, inventory systems, and any special requests that come in. When she’s not searching for new products, this Vols alum can be found binge watching her favorite TV shows and day dreaming of her next beach vacation with her family.

Tammy
Accountant

Better known as the bookkeeper queen around here, Tammy is who keeps all of our financial plates spinning. We're not sure where we would be without her! When she’s away from the Bella Vita tribe, Tammy can be found outdoors: whether it's hiking, working in her flowerbeds, or even relaxing at Greers Ferry Lake. She also spends time with her poodle pup and enjoys visiting Downtown Memphis.

Jennifer
Sales Lead

One of our top sales leads and overall favorite person, Jennifer’s big smile and even bigger personality wins the heart of everyone who meets her—which works out well since building relationships with our customers is one of her favorite things! She can’t go a day without avocados, hummus and a big belly laugh. When she’s not with the Bella Vita crew, you can find her spending time with her two twin girls, who make her head spin.

Lee Karen
Visuals Manager

There’s a reason our store is the most beautiful on the block, and it’s all down to this girl right here! Lee Karen’s keen eye for beauty and her perpetually sunny attitude make her the ultimate visuals guru. When she’s not dreaming up new ways to refresh the store that will make your heart go pitter-patter, you can catch her rooting on her alma mater (Roll Tide!) and spending time with her husband, Bio, and son, Remi.

Allyn
eCommerce Coordinator

Always willing to lend a helping hand, Allyn works to serve all of our online customers and give them a stellar shopping experience on the other end of that computer. As a Memphis native, she loves exploring new spots in the city with her husband and two kiddos. If she wasn’t working for Bella Vita, she might come out of her retirement as a National Oreo Stacking Champion!

Emry
Marketing Coordinator

Our resident Marketing gal, Emry, is the reason you see every email and social media post. Her love of organization and personal shopping comes in handy as she works to make sure you're notified of the latest and greatest products at Bella Vita. When she's not planning the next in-store event, you can probably find this Ole Miss grad training for her next marathon.

Laurie
Sales\Visuals

Resident handy-woman, Laurie, helps make all of our visual dreams come true! From building our amazing shack to helping create merchandise displays, this lady can do it all! When she’s not at Bella Vita, she can be found spending time with her hubby and two dogs, AJ and Piper.

Catie
eCommerce Product Lead

Catie wears several hats as our eCommerce Lead. Not only does she upload products to the website, but she also ensures that everything runs smoothly from the time a customer places an order online to the time it arrives at their doorstep. When she’s not maintaining our site, you can find her refining her calligraphy skills, spending time with her two cats, or most likely watching reruns of The Office.

Meredith
Inventory Assistant

As Inventory Assistant, Meredith is responsible for placing orders with our vendors for the very special items you've had your eye on. Originally hailing from High Point, North Carolina, this Ole Miss alum loves to spend time with her hubby, Bailey, and sweet little girl, Hensley.

Macy
Sales

As a sales associate at Bella Vita, Macy helps our customers to ensure an enjoyable and easy shopping experience all while sporting a big smile on her face. When away from the Bella Vita tribe, you will likely find her studying for her Marketing classes at the University of Memphis, taking classes at Hot Yoga Plus, or enjoying fun times at the dog park with her pup, Fin!

Carly
Inventory Assistant \ eCommerce

Our little ray of sunshine, Carly, helps receive all our shipments and prepares product to be put out on the sales floor. When she is at Bella Vita, you can often find her on the sales floor making sure the product she brings over looks just right! This basketball obsessed girl can be found spending time with her friends or trying out all the new hot spots in Memphis when away from our tribe.

Andi
Bridal Registry Lead

Andi’s favorite aspect of working as our bridal registry lead is helping couples select the perfect items for their new home. From dishes they’ll use while entertaining loved ones to bedding that makes their hearts sing, she helps our brides navigate through it all! When she’s not helping our brides with their happily ever after, this Arkansas Alum tending to her ever growing plant collection!

Krista
Sales

As a sales assistant, Krista enjoys learning about every detail that goes into running Bella Vita and getting to know customers on a personal level. When you see her on the sales floor, try and hold a conversation with her and not smile—it's impossible! When she’s not with her Bella Vita fam, you can find her serving up shots on the tennis court or walking her precious golden doodles.

Ann
Sales

As a sales assistant, Ann loves to help customers in finding the perfect pieces for their homes. When not with the Bella Vita tribe, Ann can be found practicing yoga or spending time with her husband and two girls. Word to the wise, if she ever challenges you to an arm wrestle, respectably decline…she is the reigning champion in her house and can beat anyone!

Medley
Sales

With a 100 watt smile and an endless supply of energy, Medley is eager to serve our customers as one of our sales assistants. When she’s not at Bella Vita ready to brighten your day, you can find her teaching P.E. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School or working her magic as a realtor. This gal's got her hands full, but she wouldn't have it any other way!

Shelby
Sales\Social Media

As a sales assistant, Shelby helps to make sure that our customers find everything they need. When away from the Bella Vita tribe, this native Memphis girl can't go long without getting some snuggles from her sweet baby boy. He'll even tag along to her art studio, where she creates beautiful paintings. (Like all Bella Vita girls, she's a lover of all things beautiful!)
