My husband and I have been visiting Bella Vista since 2001, traveling from our home in the Arkansas Delta twice each year (in the spring and again in the Fall) and fell in love with the hills, the greenways, the walks, waterfalls, and the happy people. We decided that this was the place where we wanted to spend our retirement years.
We purchased our home in 2013 and moved here in 2016 and now enjoy waking up each morning to look out our windows at the beautiful trees, rolling roads, and watching the antics of neighborhood birds and squirrels as we enjoy coffee each morning.
In Bella Vista, the “RULE OF LIFE” is to ENJOY the beauty of the Natural State in all of its wonders. You will find nature on display everywhere you look, even right out your window.
I love it so much here in Bella Vista, that I rarely leave the city limits to even shop in the nearby malls and shopping centers. My shopping trips are taken online from my home office. Thus my interest in providing my friends and neighbors with fun ways to shop online also.
In order to make the Shops of this Online Mall the best we can, each of the products that are offered in the various “SHOPS“ of the Bella Vista Online Mall has been researched and found to be some of the best products of their type.
