Get the Goods at Lille Shoppe in Guilford


It’s a lovely thing to stroll into a store that has a precise point of view, and this new spot in Guilford is exactly that. It’s the sort of place where if you want one thing, you’ll likely want all of it and owner Abby’s aesthetic jibes with mine.

The goods are sourced mainly in Europe, and you’ll find antique pine armoires and chests, French soaps and baskets, a sweet Danish line of floral printed tops and bottoms, lots of handmade ceramics, and unique vintage glassware. Add in linen tablecloths and gauze throws, as well as chic and well-priced framed art prints, and you could practically decorate your home from scratch here. Abby’s background in design and styling, plus a love of travel and plenty of time spent across the pond, influences her solid picks.

There were so many things I wanted to buy, but after careful consideration, I settled on a beautiful linen cross-back apron that I’ll be wearing on the daily. (Yes, I DO wear an apron)!
