new blog for our shop.

We decided to try out a blog for our décor shop, Mignonne. Up until now ... we've kept it to our website and our MySpace page.

But now that I have a tiny bit of experience with blogging, we've decided to branch out.

Our Blog is called Je Suis Mignonne. We have a frequent shopper program for our customers which uses the same name. It has been popular so we decided to go with it!

The blog will serve to keep our customers informed about the latest happenings in the shop. We have a steady stream of new vintage and modern décor items arriving. We buy in smaller quantities to ensure we always have a fresh look and new finds for our customers.

As time goes on, tips and trends will be covered. Since we rotate local artists work every month or so, we can also introduce them via our blog. Once I'm in France, I'll be doing buying for the store and this will be a vehicle for letting customers know what is on the way.

In the future, we will introduce an online store where a special selection of featured items will be available for purchase. Please take a moment and check it out! If there are topics or trends of interest you think would be interesting to have covered, we'd love to hear from you!

That's a great idea, I didn't realize you were keeping the store while here in France. Good luck to you. When we moved we were happy to sell our store. We sold it just before the downturn in the economy. I do miss it but it was all work all the time and the fun stuff was crammed inbetween huge amounts of not fun stuff. My favorite part was going to NY to the International Gift Fair, if only I could just be a buyer for small boutiques, I'd be happy.

Alisa-yep, hoping to have fun with it.

FT-we hit our 2 year anniv. this month and continue to build...my daughter runs the shop. We went to Atlanta fair this year, what a zoo, been to NY as well ... fun.
