Bella Studios at 2409 W. Cucharras St. is having an open house 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, to mark the company's shift to a business model that sells flowers and gifts in a retail store from one that produced floral arrangements by contract. President Stephanie Murdock moved the business, formerly known as Bella Studios at the Broadmoor, to the Old Colorado City location in April, and started a renovation project that included creation of the gift shop.
