Bittersweet Designs has been a cherished vendor of Leal for over four years. Their founder, Laurie Lenfestey, creates one-of-a-kind jewelry that beautifully features pearls, unique metals and layering. In a recent Instagram post, Bittersweet Designs wrote a touching spotlight on Leal. They wrote:

" ~Style, Grace and Confidence~

At this one of a kind boutique you are guaranteed to feel exactly that ~Stylish, Graceful and Confident! Leal Boutique is filled to the rim with stunning classic and modern designer pieces for women seeking that special touch.

Created in 1993 by Connie Leal Ballenger, this sacred space was inspired to uplift women by making them look and feel fabulous, as well as creating a warm atmosphere for the community to gather. Connie and her team excel in customer service and offer personal styling that truly makes the clients feel seen, heard and cared for.

Connie also has a special passion for charity and is always hosting events and bringing the community together for causes with heart. We love that!

NYC Market is always brightened by seeing Connie! She comes in looking elegant and stylish flashing her gorgeous smile! Even though market and travel and millions of appointments can be exhausting, Connie is always kind and patient and positive. We love showing her our newest designs and creating the perfect selection for her loyal clients.

Bittersweet Designs loves you Leal Boutique and we are so grateful to be a part of your space with heart"

Thank you Bittersweet Designs for this heartfelt spotlight. We also adore working with you and look forward to seeing where this partnership goes in years to come!
