Nellie’s is a clothing store/art gallery not to be missed when shopping Downtown Brenham! It is one of the spots we tell our shopping guests of the B&B not to miss when downtown!
Nellie’s in downtown Brenham offers eclectic-western fashion with a classic twist…
This unique blending of styles is one of the characteristics that makes Nellie’s stand out from the box stores. A creative mix of displays for ladies and home fashions invites clients to customize and combine something new with their own sense of style. While many retail ventures are short-lived, owner LaNell Arndt attributes Nellie’s 15 years of success to hard work, dedicated employees, and not being afraid to change with the times. “Our style has evolved over the years, and that has kept our look fresh.” Arndt, who is also a renowned artist, left a successful career in banking to open the store in 1996. From jewelry and accessories that range from chunky and funky to something more delicate and refined, or even a piece of original art, there is something to satisfy any need for style…
