Our Story

Founded in 1982, La Galleria is a boutique retail store providing personal adornments, jewelry, home decor and hand carved sculptures. La Galleria opened its first location in the bustling mountain town of Truckee, CA, known for its epic winters and close proximity to Lake Tahoe. La Galleria has earned a loyal following of local customers by employing expert staff that are artists themselves, specializing in floral design, interior design, painting and glass fabrication. 

La Galleria Reno opened its second location in Reno's SouthCreek Center in November 2015, expanding its welcoming atmosphere and unique offerings to the Reno-Sparks community. La Galleria works closely with artists from around the world as well as local crafters to curate a collection of goods that inspire and delight our customers.  At LG Reno, customers can find distinctive pieces such as marble water features and butterscotch amber jewelry that is coupled with experienced and friendly customer service. The co-owners, Brooke & Beau, both have a deep appreciation and love for travel and culture and excel at bringing together pieces from around the world under one roof.

La Galleria Reno looks forward to integrating itself into the Reno community and is committed to supporting local businesses, organizations, non-profits and community events.
