From HB Henriot Quimper Faience, maker of popular collector tableware patterns such as Tradition and Fleuri Royale, this line of handmade jewelry featuring hearts, crosses, and original designs is hard to find in the United States, but we have it!

Ready, Set, Holiday!

Here they come again…the holidays! Will you be hosting this year? Inviting new friends? Going to someone else’s home? Skipping the hubbub to enjoy a quiet time at home?

Whatever your plans (sometimes they shift last-minute, we know how it goes), we have beautiful items to help you make your holiday merry and bright. Our busy elves have been unpacking French jacquard and toile tablecloths, glassware with bees and fleur de lys, and colorful block-printed table runners and placemats.

Need a hostess gift? Try French perforated taper candles, Limoges boxes, and soaps from Provence.

If you want a BIG wow for your home, come see our selection of rejuvenated vintage furniture, repaired and repainted in French colors to add charm and light to any space.
