This new style is named after the famous winter resort in the French Alps.  Available in taupe, black, or red ground Tablecloths, Placemats, Napkins, and Table Runners; this dramatic pattern includes pine trees, stars, snowflakes and an occasional elk.  It provides an ambiance of winter in the Alps that suits all winter holidays. 


Vent du Sud SamurAs fans of European chocolate, we decided to seek out fine imported and local artisan candies to add to our product selection.  European style chocolates by BT McElrath, imported Belgian Truffles  and French hard candies are available now in our store. We also are featuring unique French imported foods, including flavored vinegars and oils, mustards, sea salts, jams, cookies, and more! These will also be added to our on-line catalog in time for Holiday giving. Mention this email to receive a free chocolate!
