There is a piece of France in Tallahassee and its name is Joie de Vivre: A Country French Shop. Karen Nutting, who owns the boutique, has shared her love of France with customers for 23 years. Francophiles can find lavender soaps, ceramics and books.
On July 14 and 15, the shop will celebrate Bastille Day. Door prizes, promotions and Karen’s lavender lemonade punch (lavender from France, naturally) will be part of this year’s celebration.
If you go: Joie de Vivre’s Bastille Day celebration, 1453 Market Street, Friday, July 14, 11:30AM to 5PM, and Saturday, July 15, 11:30AM to 4PM.
