In the heart of Old Town Tustin you will find a quaint shopping and dining district. While the area still has some maturing to do before it becomes comparable to Orange Circle, you will find a gem at 150 E. Main Street. At this location you will discover a wonderful boutique, I Dream of France! This charming store provides customers with unique French gifts and items that will transport anyone to the French countryside and Paris.

I Dream of France - Tustin, CA

A few years ago, Jean-Michel Carlouet and his wife Brett opened up this store in order to cater to individuals wishing to buy authentic French products. Monsieur Carlouet comments that his store has a focus on products from Provence, a region in the Southeast of France, due to the similarities in climate between that area and southern California. Some of the store’s most popular items include authentic Provençal table cloths made of cotton but feature a plastic covering that greatly facilitate cleanup. Monsieur Carlouet remarks that this item proves especially popular in France. His shop also offers soaps made in Marseilles and Provence that come in a variety of fragrances such as lavender and orange. Marseilles soap is of exceptional quality and many French people prefer it to other kinds of soap. This store also has an inventory of dinnerware, cutlery, and other fine goods which will interest all who visit there.

When you visit this boutique, you will find that I Dream of France has something that will appeal to anyone trying to bring home a bit of France with them. During your visit to Orange County, you should make a trip to this marvelous boutique in Old Town Tustin. You will feel as though you have taken a journey to France. Nowhere else outside of France will you find such an array of French products and in such a beautiful setting. Be sure to wish Jean-Michel Carlouet a friendly “Bonjour” as you enter the store, it’s French courtesy

Thanks James!
