We can’t keep it a secret anymore…we’re moving! We have outgrown our current space and will be moving to a larger location in the Tustin/Irvine area of Southern California this month.

New Address

I Dream of France
2600 Walnut Avenue #A
Tustin, CA 92780

Our new home has a warehouse, a boutique showroom for local customers, plenty of parking, and easy access from the 5 freeway and Jamboree Road.

We will be located near the Tustin Ranch, Tustin Meadows, Tustin Fields, Columbus Grove, Westpark, College Park, Harvard Square, and Walnut Village neighborhoods, as well as the Tustin District and Tustin/Irvine Marketplace shopping centers.

Moving/Opening Dates

Our Old Town Tustin boutique will be closed after August 9. Our new location will open September 4. Online orders will ship as usual during the transition.

Moving Sale

We will have a one-day Moving Sale at our Old Town Tustin boutique on Saturday, August 17, with special discounts for our local customers, as well as an online coupon. More details to follow.

See us in the November issue of Orange Coast Magazine!

Orange Coast magazine - November 2012

Look for the November 2012 issue of Orange Coast Magazine (with “Real Housewife” Gretchen Rossi on the cover). The Neighborhoods column on page 32 explores Old Town Tustin’s century-old storefronts and features some of the local businesses, including I Dream of France! There are a map and photos of the neighborhood, too. We are so delighted to be included!

We love Orange Coast!


I Dream of France Shopping Bag

We finally took the plunge and ordered shopping bags printed with our name, logo, and information. We chose bright yellow bags with metallic blue ink printing. Up until now, we’ve been making do with putting stickers with our name on a plain shopping bag. Fortunately, we found a source for bag printing that was in budget, so we gave it a try. Looks much better, non?


We are moving soon! Our new place is less than a block away from our current location, yet a really big step up for us.

Located on Main St (literally), it is much easier to find and bigger too. It has its own parking lot in the back and free street parking in front. One of the big improvements is the two giant display windows facing the street. The inside is beautiful: brick walls, open ceilings, and old concrete floors original to the building, circa 1926. It is an absolutely perfect setting to display our products!

Here are a few pictures of the empty space; we will post more as we start moving in.

We will open there on October 1st, just in time for the Tustin Tiller Days Parade, exciting!

We have had good success with our Foothills Sentry newspaper ads, so we decided to branch out and take ads in the Tustin News and Irvine World News papers. Our first ads ran in this week’s editions (12/17) and will run again in next week’s (12/24). Take a look and tell us what you think….there is a coupon on the ad too! (Good in-store only, and not online or by phone).
