Villa Sanctuary is one of my all-time favorite shops in Cincinnati! Proprietor Brad Price is a conscientious, talented and kind small-business owner who truly knows how to cater to his customers' tastes and budgets. He's always supporting the Milford community and other businesses in Milford; they are lucky to have his support. Brad is always refreshing his inventory at Villa Sanctuary with seasonal, stylish, fun and funny items for me, my home and my friends (as gifts). So whether I'm looking for a special antique piece of furniture or vintage jewelry or brand new, top-quality gems and beautiful accessories, I know Brad will have just what I want at Villa Sanctuary.
Some of my favorite things to purchase at Villa Sanctuary are gems and jewelry. Owner Brad Price has long-standing experience and connections in the jewelry industry that enable him to offer some of the most gorgeous gems and jewelry around — from fine vintage to costume to new, stunning pieces. Brad has the resources to design, create and produce some of the most exquisite jewelry I've ever had to pleasure to own and wear. He is a pleasure to work with, knows his stuff, has exquisite taste, and always delivers jewelry and service that is above and beyond my expectations!
Like most exceptional moments in one's life, the intensity reveals itself slowly, over time, yet never fully. That is unless you are meeting Brad Price for the first time. In my case, I think we talked for hours about goldsmiths around the world, colors of stones, pearls, India, and then some. That's the beauty of knowing Brad, whether you want to learn about color, reset a family heirloom, or just looking for sensory overload!
Brad, in his Villa, is fabulous with design…I think of him as an old soul, one I have worked with for 20 years or so, gifted in conversation, and so very knowledgeable in gemology. I highly recommend that you begin your odyssey now!
Whenever I need a truly special gift, I head right over to Villa Sanctuary. It’s such a beautiful shop, and Brad always has an amazing selection of unique items to choose from. I love that I can shop at the Villa for any occasion… a teacher’s gift, bridal shower, lovely hostess presents. The selection and price range can’t be beat!
Brad has such a discerning eye; he’s very intuitive, and wonderfully helpful when it comes to helping me choose that one special gift. And his talent at gift-wrapping is simply spectacular. I am truly proud to give presents so beautifully wrapped. I especially love getting to chat with Brad and pick his brain for design ideas. He is a great guy and his design expertise is second to none.
Brad offers an amazing collection of Sid Dickens Memory Blocks to choose from (I confess, these tiles are my weak spot). He consistently showcases the hard-to-find tiles. Those are my personal favorite thing to collect and receive! Stop in to Villa Sanctuary and see for yourself. You’ll thank me, I promise.
