Best Trim Shop (2008)


Even if, in our poor benighted age, there isn't much call for silk sashes or mother-of-pearl buttons for tea gloves, it's good to know where to get them should the occasion demand. At FRENCH GENERAL, damsels and dandies can find new and vintage accessories, often for a song. Glass jars, delicate drawers, and endless spools divulge buttons, snaps, pins, ribbon, and appliqué blooms of every complexion. (The selection of linens, toiletries, and antique children's toys is pretty chouette as well.) With so many ornaments to fuss with and finger, you won't want to take your French leave.
