Valerie Brandli/Living Arts Studio

Valerie Brandli’s original jewelry designs have been carried by Domain since its inception, and they continue to be popular.  Her charming “ear dragon” earrings have been an affordable best seller for many years, and are one of several of Valerie’s nature and spirit-inspired designs.

 Domain Home Accessories, with its large variety of unique art, décor, jewelry, cards, home goods and more, has been one of Gulfport’s most treasured retailers for over 12 years.  “& Gallery” opened last year in the adjacent space and showcases the work of over 40 local and regional artists in a variety of media.

“Meet the Artists” events at “& Gallery” occur during Gulfport’s popular third Saturday Art Walk.  Artists and artisans line the sidewalks of scenic Beach Boulevard on Art Walk evenings.  Independent shops and boutiques, live glassblowing at the Industrial Arts Center, live music venues, street performers, and Gulfport’s popular restaurants are all part of the lively Art Walk scene.

Parking in the waterfront village is free and convenient.  Free trolleys are available for visitors parking in remote sites for transportation to and from the hub of Art Walk.  For more information, contact Daniel Hodge, (727) 366-4086 or email dan@igc.org; or visit the Facebook page for Domain Home Accessories & Gallery: www.facebook.com/domainhome.
