Aah, tis the season! We have been very busy selling Townhouses out here in the west. We are incredibly blessed to have gone mostly untouched by this slow economic time. And thank goodness, things seem to be turning around for the better in this great Country of ours! However, there are still a lot of folks down and out of work this winter. It is pretty cold out here where we live, and I was just thinking about going through the closets to find our extra coats. When my girls were young & still at home, they would get new coats each year. Because I was sooo strict (just ask them!) their previous years coat would still be in really good condition. We would take the coats and give them to folks that could really use them. I still do this every year and I hope my girls do too! So, if you happen to have an extra jacket or coat, I am sure someone out there would really appreciate receiving it. Tis the Season! ~ Merci! R.
Bonjour, and welcome to French Charmed, a place where everything Frenchy, girly and vintage is celebrated! I began in the antique business in 1991, and though I've found many stunning pieces from all over the world, I can't help but be extra charmed by anything encompassing the ambiance of France. Is it the elegance of the language, the romance of the cobblestone streets, the bold and seductive style of the people who live there? I can't put my finger on exactly what draws me in, but the country certainly has a je ne sais quoi about it that can't be ignored. Since experiencing the magic firsthand via my first trip there 20 years ago, I've thrown myself into creating a place where people just as entranced as me can buy, see and be inspired by the beautiful things that make France so magnifique. My business has evolved over the years (it actually started as a lingerie boutique!), but one thing stays true: I am forever passionate about my work, and I hope that through this blog and my website (www.FrenchCharmed.com), you will become just as passionate about it, too! Please leave comments if you can, and au revoir, beloved French Charmed reader!
