The most wonderful part of our shopping trips to Provence, is being welcomed into the homes of artists, antique dealers, chefs, journalists, and even bed and breakfast proprietors. Thanks to our friendship with uber awesome guide, Jill Mitchell of LeTrip (and our reputation for bringing the absolute Sweetest and Best Vintage Super Shoppers), our ladies get to experience all of the extremes of Provencal Shopping. The people of Provence are warm and inviting and I would like to introduce you to just a few.
Meet Anne Marie and Hubert...
They then welcomed us into their lovely home for wine and nibbles..
A day or two later in the beautiful village of Lourmarin
Regina has a small lace shop attached to her house. No website, not sure if there is even a phone. She has no set hours and opens when she pleases so that her family and lifestyle always comes first.
