An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until May 6, 2017
On May 5 and 6, a French pop-up store named “Oh la la! Ephemeral Boutique” will open its doors to the public in Princeton. Organized by a group of craft contributors, artists and French designers, this 10th edition of Oh-la-la! will offer the delicate Provençal flavors and invite the visitors to share the authentic French “Art de Vivre” through gastronomy, home decoration, fabrics and paper creations, fashion, jewelry, art and photography, cooking classes, fresh made crêpes.
The concept of the Oh-la-la! Pop-up market was founded in 2013 in Princeton, originally as private sales by a small group of French designers. Since, the little boutique has grown and has kept its objective to promote the French lifestyle, creating a cross-cultural encounter. “We wish to offer an event with a strong human factor. Our visitors really enjoy to meet with our exhibitors and reciprocally. Bringing the French spirit and creativity into our events are our key values” says Sophie Bailly, co-founder and organizer of Oh-la-la!.
Following 3 prior editions open to the general public in Hopewell, Oh-la-la! is back in Princeton this Spring on May 5 and 6, and will celebrate its 10th edition around the theme of Provence. This year, let yourself listen to the sound of the cicadas and breath the scents of the Garrigue!
Around a Provençal booth honoring the regional products (Marat d’Avignon linen and soaps of Marseille from Marius Fabre, imported by Tacks and Fabrics, fougasses and special breads from Terra Momo Bread, honey from Tassot Apiaries and scents…), a dozen of artists and designers will display their creations, all 100% French Made!
To widen its appeal, Oh la la! welcomes this year new contributors: a collection of “little dresses” mothers and daughters from COCLI Collection, home decoration items as well as clothes and accessories with a seaside feel, made out of sails from 727 Sailsbags, French chocolates from Michel Cluizel, handmade fabric accessories from Couture à Maman, personalized embroideries and appliqués by Linge et bobines, traditional upholstery by Lounge chez Cel, Sebastiani Fencing Academy bringing the learning of Fencing “à la Française”.
