Don’t balk at the fact that you may have to take a thirty-minute trip up 75 to get there. If you are in the market for some of-the-moment affordable costume jewelry, this new shop is worth the trip, we promise! Owner, Vivian Ho has plenty of experience in the business as a wholesaler (her showroom is Kenze Panne at the DMC) and based on a lack she saw in the market, she has ventured into retail with a shop of her own, Panacea. Situated on a corner in Watters Creek shopping center in Allen, the store is stocked (we could have spent hours in there, seriously) to the brim with current trendy (studs, stones, mixed metal, feathers, etc) jewelry and accessories (belts, scarves, headbands, handbags). Most items are under $35, but certainly don’t appear so (see some more photos after the jump). They will celebrate their grand opening with a bash from 3PM-5PM this Saturday. In addition to gathering some great gifts for all of your fashionable friends, get a gift for yourself for attending – gift bags and give-away’s are part of the celebration! See you there.
The shopping news you need to know this week, from store openings to major sales.
