the accent shop

Once upon a time a young couple named Dick and Jane Bridgins worked in the display department at a local department store.  Frustrated by the lack of modern design, they ventured away from the department store to bring a more contemporary style store to Indianapolis.  They started The Accent Shop Inc. in 1958.  They sold furniture, lamps, tabletop and much more.
Today our store focuses more on bridal and gift registry items.  We carry a wide range of dinnerware, flatware, glassware and serving pieces as well as cards, collectibles, jewelry etc…
Over the years we have grown in square footage as well as in staff.  Some of our best customers have enjoyed working for us over the years and we like to think of them all as part of our family.  We have also built close relationships with many of our long time vendors.  Some of our reps have even been known to work for us too.
When Dick passed away in 1994, our daughter Becky and her husband moved back from California to work in the store.

The store is now located at 1480 east 86th street.  We are open 7 days a week.  We have been honored as “The Best Gift Shop in Indy” and “Best Place to find a hostess gift”.
We take pride in our staff, our merchandise and our special gift wraps.  We want to offer you the best to be found in an independent specialty shop.

Our gift wrap:

All well-designed gifts from the accent shop, come in well-designed packages. If you choose to gift wrap your item, we’ll wrap it in our traditional white glossy paper and tie it with your choice of satin color bow. Simply put a check on the gift wrapping option before you add an item to cart.
