planning a winter getaway?

If you answered yes ... and are having trouble finding something sweet and summery for your trip to someplace warm ... (yes, out here in the cold French countryside, that can be something of a challenge) ... stop by The Bohemians in Brantôme where you will find some pretty sundresses and such from La Fiancée du Mekong. And better still, they are now half-off ! yes, a holiday promotion is in effect so don't miss out.

We also have some new furniture pieces and winter sweaters and wraps ... new decorative glass works and other items for your browsing pleasure.

Hope to see you soon!

New to The Bohemians - The Stained Glass Art of Jean Her

We are so pleased to feature the beautiful glass works of Jean Her at The Bohemians. Jean, a Parisian who has been living in the Dordogne with his wife Claude for 3 years now, has an atelier in Eyvirat, just a stone's throw from Brantôme.

Jean creates many forms of glass works, both functional and decorative. He has decorative hangings for windows, one-of-a-kind art creations such as lamps and figures, and he can also custom design permanent window or other installations for your home. He combines traditional glass works with Tiffany methods.

In addition, Jean uses glass fusing to create decorative objects such as candle holders and jewelry.

Right now, we have a small assortment on exhibition and for sale at the shop. We are also planning some artist's exhibition days between now and Christmas ... where more of Jean's art will be available.

For a look at Jean's methods and atelier, follow this link to his website.

the new collection begins!

We've begun receiving the new fall/winter collection from La Fiancée du Mekong. We are pleased to be the sole shop in Brantôme where you will find this pretty line of women's clothing.

We will offer an assortment of their tunic-cut tops in 2 lengths, a very flattering dress cut in a an A-line and, later in October, some cozy sweaters and wraps. The dress is formal enough for holiday parties and such, or could be dressed down a bit when paired with boots. In addition, we have a collection of scarves in fall colors.

The quality of the clothes is obvious, they are cut nicely and drape well, all are becoming to a woman's figure. We have a full range of sizes for every gal (S-XL) and prices range from 18-42 euros for the tops, dresses at 68 euros. Just what you'd expect from an enterprise founded and managed by a woman!

The fall/winter color palette is rich with burgundies, olives and khakis, teal blues and splashes of rose. These clothes reflect the spirit of The Bohemians ... relaxed, adventurous, with lots comfort and style!

Summer fashions are on promotion with 20-30% off selected items.

For those of you not close enough to stop by, give us a call. We ship within France for a nominal fee!

take a peek ...

we've got some very special vintage collections in the shop now ... we'll be featuring a few from time to time, on the blog, as we bring them into the boutique.

Its funny how certain colors or items seem to attract mates to form a collection. For example, imagine your pretty fall table graced with a few of these very pretty pieces in blue and wine tones. There are some special transferware plates and old pitchers, vases and coffee servers ... which can be used as they were meant (serving coffee!) or to hold flowers as a centerpiece. Either way, a pretty touch for a fall dinner party.

Elle Décor shared a feature on collecting tea and coffee pots just this month ... we've done the hard work for you (scouring about to find them) ... so stop by and see what's here!
