Micaela Kelly Bennett, fondly known as Kell to her friends and family, launched her first retail shop in Paris, France in 1974. Upon moving back to the United States, she married and had a daughter, and enjoyed being a corporate wife and mother. When her daughter graduated from high school, Kell felt she needed to fill a long, unfulfilled creative void in her life since leaving Paris.

A great little eclectic store that carries a great variety of indulgent items for both myself and anyone I want to give a unique gift to. Staff is helpful in answering questions - especially if you're like myself and maybe not as cultured as others.
