The Frenchman's Wife ~ New Shop


As promised, I am back with a few photos of Lisa's wonderful new shop...


located in La Grange, IL

I first discovered Lisa and her amazing mega-talent for display last year at the Kane County Flea Market.  I instantly loved her mix of vintage goods with a European flair.  {She always has the best vintage crates!}  Her look is warm and well loved and I just can never get enough of it!!!

You can imagine how excited I was when she told me that she would be opening up a shop?!!!

Lisa just opened up the doors of her new shop a few weeks ago, so last week I popped over there for a quick visit...and I instantly fell in love with her new shop! 

 I managed to snap a few photos while I was is a peek...

I loved this vintage wing back chair covered in a beautiful linen fabric...

and this old table was a favorite of mine, as cool would that be in a studio or as a kitchen island??!!

I think Lisa loves the cubes of French Savon de Marseille soap as much as I do :))

Just some of the vintage merchandise that Lisa had stocked, that I loved were...

wooden crates

European colored bottles

cutting boards

vintage textiles


old wooden ladders

You can shop the Frenchman's Wife at:

8 South Stone Avenue
La Grange, IL

*Please note that Lisa's hours are as follows:

Tuesday 11 - 5
Wednesday 11 - 5
Thursday 11 - 7 pm

**You can also find Lisa writing the blog Provenance Market 

If you live in the Chicagoland area, I hope you get a chance to stop by this fabulous shop!!  One of the joys of shopping there is to have a chance to chat with Lisa, so be sure and stop and say hi!

Have a great weekend ~
