Artfully Chocolate’s Last Alexandria Location is Closing its Doors and Selling Everything at Online Auction.


Even though the doors at Artfully Chocolate are closing for good, owner Eric Nelson is already looking for the open window of opportunities to come, and is excited to sell his artwork, bistro and gift shop at online auction.

Eric opened the shop with the vision of selling his original artwork, which is his true passion. Over the years the store expanded to include gourmet chocolates and treats, a lunch menu, ice cream, coffee, and stationary items and accessories. Now that he is closing the shop he is ready to sell everything from the restaurant equipment to the gift bags, jewelry, novelty items, and most of all his artwork, which is displayed throughout the store in the form of window hangings, paintings, café tables (pictured below) and more.


This is your chance to support a local artist and get a one of a kind piece of artwork for your home.
