Nothing compares to getting lost within the pages of a good book... except maybe displaying your favorites for all the world to see, which then gives you the perfect excuse to relive the tales when conversations come up about your chosen decorative pieces. We’ve found crates and crates of affordable vintage books, and trust us when we tell you that if organized and highlighted properly, they can transform any room into a wondrous cavern of stories and tales, both literally (because they are actual stories and tales) and figuratively, as they will create a multitude of curious conversations when people visit your home. Happy reading! ~ Chelle

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!
