Janice Schma has put together one of the most beautiful shops in the historic Main Street district of Winnsboro, TX. There's a decidedly European countryside atmosphere in this shop which is quite enchanting. There are imported gourmet items, luxurious lotions, art, unusual furnishings and accessories and so much more. Plus, the friendly and knowledgeable staff is eager to help you find just the right gift or decorative item you're looking for. This shop could easily compete with upscale retailers in Dallas.

“There's a unique treasure in every corner of this store.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

I challenge anyone to visit this store and not walk away with something special. Something for everyone. You need to visit repeatedly to see everything and just when you think you've seen it all, there's new merchandise to enjoy. A really great place to spend an afternoon.

When you're tired of shopping you can stroll to the back of the store to Art & Espresso and enjoy a cappucino and a slice of cake.

“You have got to visit this store!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

Going into this shop is like being in a shop in France. The shop has a wonderful ambiance and the merchandise is not the usual small town fare.

This is the place you want to go to shop for yourself or for a special gift. Some of the things I liked were the gourmet oils, soaps and lotions, home decor, art, and garden planters.

A great place to shop, buy, and browse! It is unique!
