Bilbo Baggs Sportswear Replaces the Closed Revera on Roosevelt Row
The barely one-year-old Revera has packed up its bottled oils and left the Artisan Village on Roosevelt Row.
Represented by Violet Brand and Susan Kerr, the local beauty and aromatherapy shop that specialized in custom-blended perfumes and bath and body products made no public announcement of its farewell, vacating its downtown storefront in February.
Revera's last Facebook update was posted February 7: "What is your favorite memory associated with scent?" A somewhat ironic post considering the scent store itself is now just such a memory.
But on a positive note, Roosevelt Row's business scene clearly is still growing. Suite 149 already has been replaced by Bilbo Baggs Sportswear, a local fitness boutique specializing in custom-made posing suits, wrestling costumes, fitness costumes, and active wear.
Operated by designer Norma Bilbo and her team, the store made its debut on First Friday of last month and currently is available by appointment only.
