What's In Store.....

Well February has turned out to be a busy month at French Vanilla. I decided to move my  counter to the opposite side near the door to give more room for product. I wasn't sure at first if this was going to work but with a bit of trial and error we finally got the layout to work and I really like the way it has turned out. And from the many comments it appears my customers do too!

New products have also been arriving. Below are some of the new products that have recently arrived .......
Floral Sham with April Cornell Yellow Euro Shams
"Paris" Print on Canvas

Hand-made Lavender Heart Sachets
Hanging "Toilette" Sign

Large Bronze Crown Hooks

Edith Piaf "La Vie En Rose"  CD in a Tin

Your shop is looking lovely Sheila! Glad to see that all is well and that you are surviving another winter on the west coast. The weatherman is calling for 40-50cm here tomorrow...just when you think you've grown used to it, you realize that you never will...brrr! Wishing you early signs of Spring and a prosperous coming season:-)

Warmest regards,

Hello Bonjour....

Well this is my first attempt at blogging! It's been quite a year and a half for me. I retired from the Federal Government after 34 years and in October 2006, I started a new retail store called "French Vanilla Home and Garden". In July 2007 I launched my store's e-commerce website and now this....blogging! Who would have thought! Has it been challenging?....a bit, stressful?.... some days, rewarding?....most definitely! I love owning my own retail store, filling it with things I love and helping my customers find that perfect item or gift! I am enjoying this new phase of my life and look forward to learning new things, having new adventures and making new friends along the way!
