BETHLEHEM — The mother-daughter team of Diane Fallacara and Grace Wolcott have opened Between Heaven and Hell, a petite boutique carrying spiritual, religious and metaphysical goods and more, in a small building adjacent to their historic home at 53 Lakes Rd. The 10x20-foot space was a storage building outside the 1744 home built for the Rev. Joseph Bellamy until Diane, a long-time art collector, and Grace, an accomplished artisan, decided they needed a “she-shed.”
