A warm Phoenixville welcome to Romantic Jewelers

On October 22nd, Romantic Jewelers opened shop at 241 Bridge St. The Phoenixville location is the third Romantic Jewelers, joining sister stores in Malvern and West Chester. The Phoenix reports

She[owner Debbie Pekala] carries a wide array of fine jewelry, antique and vintage pieces, and handmade sterling pieces with precious and semi-precious stones. When customers walk in they will find a case to their right filled with jewelry they can buy if, in Pekala's words, "their pocket books are a little light." If they take a step further, however, they will find a collection of diamond necklaces and bracelets ranging from 14 to 18 karats as well as platinum.

Romantic Jewelers also carries rare hand-crafted rose-cut diamonds, which Pekala says very few other stores carry. Another display case is arranged solely with precious and semi-precious stones including amethyst, pink and yellow sapphires, rubies, and emeralds.

"They’re pretty things you don’t see everywhere," Pekala said.

Her collection continues with large lemon topaz stones, which greatly resemble diamonds, an estate collection of pre-owned jewelry, perfume, and "eggs" Pekala says make great gifts and are a more appealing alternative to traditional gift boxes in which to store jewelry.

Romantic Jewelers also offers full watch and jewelry repair. The store also offers custom-designed engagement rings and wedding bands, and this particular section seems to be one of Pekala’s favorite parts about the store.

Romantic Jewelers will be having their ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday night during the First Friday festivities.

Good luck to Debbie and her staff!

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions.
