Shoppers in Powell got to know Bloomsbury Loft for its shabby-chic, crafty decor offerings during the boutique's eight years there.

Now it's the Short North's turn to adore the shop.

Bloomsbury Loft has relocated to High Street, and with the move comes a new name: Adore, pronounced a-DOR-ay.

Owner Judith Mercado is looking forward to growing the brand's line of handmade-in-house objects. The store will also have work by other artists - many of them local - and a regular display of featured two-dimensional art.

The slightly smaller space opened just in time for September's Gallery Hop.

"Everyone had been saying, 'You belong in the Short North,'" Mercado said of her loyal customers, many of whom have already made the trek down to see the new space. "I had the idea that our nontraditional look was going to be very well-taken here, and it has."

Bloomsbury Loft co-founders Karla Furrer and Beth Richman are joining Mercado as collaborators at Adore, and Furrer's jewelry line, Bella Studio, graces several display cases in the back half of the store.

Bella necklaces, bracelets and earrings are marked by an eclectic, trinket-y style that's been especially popular in mainstream fashion the last couple of seasons.

"I think we invented them," Mercado said. "They became very famous, and we were like, 'We were doing that a long time ago.'"

Also check out Adore's vintage-fabric-covered pillows, each different from the next. New offerings for the new store include locally made birdhouses covered collage-style with scraps of fabric, and mirrored magnetic boards and jeweled and beaded magnets from Giggle Home Furnishings.

In October, Mercado plans to launch Atelier, a studio and classroom space housed in the back half of Adore. Much like at the Powell location, a rotating schedule of classes will be taught by artists on subjects such as making jewelry and putting together plant arrangements.

"It will all stay true to what I really like," she said, "the recycled, the repurposed, the handmade, where people are really loving what they do."
