Crystal Flynt is ready to re-open Bon in a brand new location.
is known to sell adorable novelties, clothing, kitchenware and more in Broadway Village, but owner Crystal Flynt is moving on from the complex and over to Five Points.
"The energy was changing there the past couple of years," Flynt says. "It just didn't feel like the right place for us anymore."
So Flynt and her mother/co-owner Bonnie Flynt decided to pack Bon up and move her wares next door to 5 Points Market and Cafe Desta. She says that her new neighbors are one of the reasons she enjoys her new space so much already.
"It's just such a nice, refreshing environment. We're surrounded by nice people," she says.
Bon carries a variety of clothing for men and women, jewelry, baby clothes and toys, blankets, quilts, books, linens, soaps, candles, greeting cards and more. She says her new space, despite actually being a bit smaller, will carry more kitchenware, glassware, cookbooks and linens than the previous location.
"It's more concisely put together here," she says. "It seemed to me like there just wasn't a good place to buy things for your kitchen that wasn't some big chain."
While my wallet already aches at the thought of a bulked-up Bon glassware section, it seems that Flynt is excited to open at her new location at 760 S. Stone Ave. The grand opening will be Saturday at 10 a.m. After that, Bon will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
