Whether you’re looking to refresh, reimagine, or redesign your home or just buy a unique gift you can’t find anywhere else, Louis Lemieux and Jena Brescia are here to help. In this episode of the Experience We-Ha Poodcast, Ryan and Jeff talk to Louis and Jena about their journey bringing their decor and expertise from Bantam, CT, to West Hartford.
Check out their beautiful and unique store located at 970 Farmington Ave. today and sign up in-store to win this cool WeHa bag made by Apolis, a Los Angeles-based company that hires hundreds of women in the most impoverished country of Bangladesh. These women are offered heathcare, financial and legal aid, education and more. In return, they work tirelessly to share their craft with retailers all over the world. The bag is designed to carry up to 125 lbs., includes a shoulder strap, and, of course, is all about WeHa!
