NEW STORE, DRIFTWOOD BLUE, OPENS IN BELL TOWER SHOPS

Driftwood Blue—a locally owned boutique selling jewelry, clothing, accessories, eclectic gifts and artisan crafts curated by the owners—has opened in the Bell Tower Shops.

Driftwood Blue was previously known to Southwest Florida residents as Cargo Trading Co., a retail outlet on Sanibel Island. The business opened in 2013 selling home accents and décor, clothing, candles and more.

Bell Tower Shops recently announced a comprehensive redevelopment initiative to create a more modern look and feel. Plans include new gathering areas, updated architecture and redesigned storefronts, fresh paint and contemporary lighting.
