Nelsonís to host grand opening celebration for expansion May 20
Nelsonís on Spring Street in Eureka Springs has increased its size and scope dramatically over the past few months. To celebrate, the store will have a grand opening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, May 20.
The greatest change to the store is the inclusion of the uphill space next door, which is now called Nelsonís Man Land. True to its name, the shop boasts menís clothing with brands like Zenfari, Basic Options and Santiki. The shop also has finger puppets, greeting cards, knives, hats, skincare, fragrances, leather goods and the worldís smallest pair of underpants.
The main shop area recently added home accents from Arkansas company Parkhill, as well as new handbags and small leather goods from several suppliers. There are new casual womenís knit tops that are locally printed and produced, with graphics taken from the artwork of J.A. Nelson.
The J.A. Nelson Gallery upstairs displays 40 completely new artworks. All made of wood, the hand-carved and hand-finished pieces are very unusual and intriguing. The fine carving can most accurately be described as wall sculptures.
