We opened Circa in Belleville, Illinois in November of 2004. Way back in "those" days, there weren't a lot of places or websites that were available for me to sell my jewelry (Mellow Mountain). Etsy hadn't even been launched yet! At the time, I was working and selling my items at a small shop. That motivated me to open Circa, and the hunt for our location began. Being from and spending a lot of time in Belleville, we decided that this was a great, historic place to to settle and grow our roots! We love our community and we couldn't be here without the awesome support of our clients and friends.
