A new destination for unique handbags, jewelry and other fashion accessories has popped up in downtown Allentown.

Silveri & Company, an accessories store focused on retro, vintage and modern pieces, opened May 4 at 21 N. Seventh St. on Allentown’s ArtsWalk.

The pop-up shop, located in the ArtsWalk annex building (directly across from Blended by Brü Daddy’s), will operate for at least the next two months, owner Kathy Cruz said.

Dynamic looks include purses and purses in shapes such as circles, hearts and pyramids; and prints like graffiti, marble and plaid. There are even bags designed to look like lips, newspapers, and containers of popcorn and fries.

The daily update for the Lehigh Valley businessman.

The handbags, many of which can go from cross-body to shoulder, are made from high-quality materials including vegan leather, gold chains, and pearl accents.

“We also have retro camera and cassette purses,” Cruz said. “So they are very unique.”

The store also offers jewelry such as bracelets, anklets, rings, and earrings, as well as other accessories such as sunglasses and key rings.

Cruz hopes to open a permanent brick-and-mortar location soon, but wants to see how the community reacts to the concept first. The pop-up store’s reception so far has been “incredible,” Cruz said.

“The very first day we opened, we had customers, and it continues like that,” Cruz said. “We receive customers every day.”

Silveri & Company, which is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday in Allentown, is named after a variation of Cruz’s married name, Silverio.
