b Spotted: Cornerstone Shop & Gallery

Posted on 17 November 2015

Cornerstone_Blog33 Tell us a little about you! How long has your store been around? How many employees?  The Cornerstone Shop & Gallery is located in the heart of downtown Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Owners Karin & Bruce Bennett owned an art gallery in town for several years before purchasing the “Cornerstone Shoppe” (as it was formerly known) in 2007. The store now features nearly 10,000 square feet of home accessories and accent pieces, furniture and décor, baby and wedding gifts, unique clothing, jewelry and accessories, handcrafted items from local and regional artisans, fine linens and tableware, candles, original art from local and area artists, and one-of-a-kind collections of hand-blown glass and ceramics. Cornerstone_Blog How did you first learn about cinda b? A rep brought in the product line to “try it out” and return it if it didn’t perform. This worked very well, and actually, while it didn’t work the first time, I decided to try it again when I saw the new patterns (back in 2011) and it has been growing ever since! What is your favorite pattern? Favorite travel style? It is hard to pick a favorite, but I love Verde Bonita in the summer and Neptune for its nautical feel, which is perfect for the lake. Mod Tortoise and Jet Set Black are my favorites for travel. The Carry-On Rolly with the Super Tote II are our go-to bags! The Super Tote is perfect as a carry-on or overnight bag, toting catalogs and “plane reading” material when I travel, and is also great for the beach or boat. Very light weight and I always get compliments in the airport wherever I go! Cornerstone_Blog   Where is your dream travel location? There are many on my bucket list! Morocco, Peru, Paris (again), London, Sweden! And I totally need a bag for each trip – Cinda will have to come up with more new patterns! What do you and your customers love most about cinda b?  The fact that the line is Made in America is very important to us and to our customers. We love the patterns and the fact that the bags are lightweight and machine washable.   Cornerstone_Blog2 My best kept tip for hosting a party or event? Gather a group of friends from different walks of life for an interesting mix of people for lively conversation. And prepare ahead so you have time to enjoy! What was your most successful event at the store? We host events throughout the year and were thrilled to have Monica Pedersen, design expert and author of “Make It Beautiful” visit the store, as well as Cinda Boomershine’s appearance in Spring 2013, when she shared her packing tips with our customers! We can’t wait for a return visit!     Thank you Cornerstone Shop & Gallery for your time and support. We are so lucky to have a Retailer like you!  -From all of us at cinda b
