Salon du Jour: BLISS

On a recent trip to Bucks County I spied this artistically merchandised shop window full of jewel-bedecked mannequins, purses and watches, and just had to pop in.

Once inside, I was immediately transported to another time, when a trip to the Salon didn't refer to your crowning glory but a special shopping expedition to an elegant Ladies Boutique.  This is what awaits you when you enter Bliss.

Owner Hillary Benzel
Showcase after showcase brims with an eclectic assortment of modern romantic accessories, allowing your imagination to wander until, for a moment, you could easily believe you are standing in some chic Parisian atelier of a not-yet-discovered designer.  You'll find sterling silver and fashion jewelry, handbags, clutches, shoes, hats, belts, and scarves.  The most amazing discovery was that, posh elegance aside, prices were well within even the most modest of budgets. 

There was just so much temptation, I couldn't leave without a little trinket.  This pumpkin leather rose ring will be just the perfect update to my closet classics!

Bliss is located at 19B West Bridge Street in historic New Hope, Pennsylvania.  Their hours are 11:00-6:00.  Directions can be found on their website, or by calling (215) 862-9994.

The Holidays are coming...after satisfying your gift list, why not indulge yourself in a little Bliss.


  1. I just recently picked a Peacock theme for my wedding reception. When I came to Bliss, I found two gorgeous Peacock necklaces. I have never seen anything like these before. Thanks to Hillary's store, I now have a necklace for my wedding and many other events.
    I am now a new Bliss lover!

  2. First off, congratulations and best wishes on your impending nuptials! I'm delighted to hear Bliss was able to offer you a unique treasure to truly make your day memorable. Enjoy...and thank you for stopping by!

  3. On a recent vist to New Hope, I discovered Bliss & got a super cute bag, that I'm always getting compliments on! I'd love to make more purchases, but, it's a bit out of my way, hoping to see online shopping in the future :-)
