“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

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Always willing to lend a helping hand, Jordan works to serve all of our online customers and give them a stellar shopping experience on the other end of the computer. Gilmore Girls obsessed, Jordan loves squeezing in a yoga class after work, diving into a good book, and escaping to the lake for the weekend.
The girl with the answers to all things tech, Catie not only does she upload products to the website but also ensures that everything runs smoothly when a customer browses our website. When she’s not maintaining our website, you can find her refining her calligraphy skills, spending time with her two cats, or most likely listening to her favorite musical.
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.
Julie'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, you can find Juile hanging out with her husband Michael and their sweet pup, Mila.
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!
Our jack of all trades, Carly, helps us with all of the things. She is our resident candle pourer and helps produce your favorite Southern Soy Scents candles. You can also catch her on the Bella Vita sales floor helping our customers find the perfect gifts or additions to their homes. This basketball obsessed girl can be found spending time with her friends and puppy or trying out all the new hot spots in Memphis.
Known as our eager beaver, Kellie, is always ready and willing to help our customers find the perfect gifts for the ones they love! When she's not at Bella Vita, Kellie enjoys working on puzzles, staying active by trail running or playing pickle ball, and spending time with her husband and two kiddos.
Olivia might just be your favorite person on our team! She prepares all our web orders and gets them ready to hit your doorstep. She’s very familiar with packing tape and can rattle off shipping quotes at the drop of a hat! When she's not delivering bridal gifts or packaging up orders, you can find this UT alum cheering on her Vols or diving into a good book.
As visual assistant, Julia, is here to help make sure everything on our floor not only looks good, but is easily shoppable for our customers. A Mississippi native, Julia loves exploring Memphis, listening Taylor Swift on repeat, and binging The Office when she's not at Bella Vita.
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!
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!
As our resident graphic designer, Shelby helps make sure our social media always looks its best. 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!)
Do you believe in good customer service? Are you serious about your job? Can you chat it up with total strangers? We're looking for you!
