La Vie, L'amour!

When it seems every bit of news is gloomy, do what the French women do -- Pamper, pamper, pamper!! Light a sweet smelling candle and soak yourself in a tub full of heavenly scented bubbles as Edith Piaf sings your troubles away. Then dust on a little perfumed powder, wrap up in a satin robe and tuck your toes into plush, embroidered slippers. Plunging stocks, talk of recession, no matter! We smell good and feel good and there's always that silver lining to look for...
**New Lollia has arrived, and it may be their best scent yet! "Imagine" is a blend of flowering willow and lotus blossom, with a touch of mandarin orange. Available in parfum, lotion, bubble bath, dusting powder and scented candles.**

Add a taste of Provence and a big dose of style to your kitchen or home office with a Paris Envy message board! Constructed of burlap over cork in a hardwood frame, these boards are as beautiful as they are functional -- think grocery lists, family photos, school papers.
Hand crafted from start to finish by local artisan Jason Moore, you'll only find them here!

I Love Paris In The Fall...

But since most of us won't be jetting over that way any time soon, we'll be loving Phoenix in the fall. That is, when the temps stay under 100 degrees for say, a solid week!! In the spirit of our hoped-for fall season, treat yourself to bargains here at Paris Envy.
Many of our furniture pieces both large and small have been greatly reduced, just in time to spruce up your nest for the coming holiday season. And much of our summer clothing (along with a nice selection of fall things) are up to 50% off!

Very Exciting Arrivals!!

Our new treasures have been arriving daily, and we want to give you a preview!
First, the lovely handmade totes and handbags from Bari J, a San Francisco based designer who uses vintage-style fabrics, ribbon, and brooches to adorn these fabulous works of art. Each piece is slightly different so your bag is totally unique! From her larger shopping totes to the adorable wristlets that "pop" open, you'll find one to fall in love with. Her other must have: French velvet ribbon brooches made to adorn her bags; or a coat, hat, even bulletin board.
New in Apparel: Organic cotton or silk tops from Trinity. Beautiful colors and quality at amazing prices!
And the ever important accessory -- a gorgeous handmade pendant from local artisan Shelly Brooks. Ms. Brooks uses fresh water and Swarovsky pearls and fashions a variety of images into lead-free silver "portraits." Hurry to find your favorite, these are one of a kind!

Hand Crafted Beauty

Many of the pieces you find throughout the shop are designed and built by local artisan Jason Moore, exclusively for Paris Envy. Jason combines old world materials such as marble, iron and reclaimed lumber to fashion one of a kind works of art in a distinctively French style. Pictured are his wrought iron pet bed, zinc topped bathroom vanity, and stone & iron garden bench.

New Treats for Spring...

I'm often asked if all the products in our shop come from Paris and the answer, unfortunately, is no. Our sign says, "vintage and French-inspired," because I love Paris style and I love the shops of Paris, but part of the appeal of the city is the variety in what is offered. You can find things with an Asian flair, a modern edge, or a funky, bohemian vibe right alongside the Paris we all know and love from films and magazines -- the scroll-edged mirrors, the curvy legged chairs. So while a space filled with only Parisian treasures would be lovely, it would also be prohibitively expensive and would limit what I could offer you!

So come and visit us to view our new collection of tableware from Magenta, our spring jammies from PJ Salvage, and our Parasuco jeans -- from, yes, Italy!! And you have to check out our purses and bags from Nahui Ollin. Made entirely from unused candy wrappers and then hand sewn for durability, they are really cute as well as environmentally friendly.
