Bell"Occhio is one of my favorite gift shops on Bowen. Whether a special something to take home to a friend or furnishings for one of the properties it is always a treat to see what's new and to check in with Sharon, the owner. 

Sharon's sister, Sheila, supplies the store with handmade soaps and essential oils. One of my favorite gifts.
