Once upon a time …in 1995
Marielle and Pascal Giai owners of Maison en Provence AKA ” the little French store”
We opened up Maison en Provence in 1996 realizing a long time dream of sharing all the great products and crafts from the South of France where we grew up . Over the time the shop had evolved from home and garden to a real concept store of everything French ! We took great care in selecting our products :perfumes , triple milled soaps, linens, dishes , children toys as well as women accessories, scarves , jewelry , hand crafted knives or delicious jams and cookies ! Most of all we loved our clients and have built up an incredible loyal clientele base .
After 25 wonderful years, we have decided that it was time for us to go back to France. The shop has never done better than now but it was time to retire .
We tried to keep the shop alive but in the end we could not work out the sale of our business and have closed it down now .
Nevertheless, we will still post from Provence on this blog , so please enter your email address and follow us !

Our hydrangeas which we are so proud of …hard to believe we started them all from just a few sticks given to us by Bill the old neighbor across the street !
