I am your French personal shopper and I thrive to bring you French Brands and items that really celebrate the authentic French “Art de Vivre”. Because of my native French upbringing, I will share with you other items a little bit more on the off-beaten path that are truly classic French and maybe less known. Some of these items are items found in every French home such as the Madeleine baking pan very much like the standard muffin baking pan in the U.S. while others are a little more cliché such as the Marinière.
On this page, you will find a small sample to be browsed like you would do lèche-vitrine, and scrolling down at the bottom you can click for more specific collections such as French Beauty Items, Gourmet Items, Made in France, Gifts that celebrate the French culture & lifestyle and Savoir-Faire. I hope you’ll enjoy this sampling of some of the best French products I love.
