For all those who have enjoyed sleeping in the antique linen sheets on our beds or admired our beautiful table linens this page is for you!
Janine, my good friend and specialist in antique linens, has given me permisson to offer her most beautiful pieces to my guests via my web site. You perhaps met her and her husband, Bernard (who’s the furniture expert), when you were here as she has often exhibited under our linden tree and most everyone has gone home with lovely initialed napkins, an embroidered linen table cloth, beautiful bed sheets or perhaps some wonderful French dish towels. These treasures often come from a wedding trousseau with somany pieces that many were never used. I always marvel at the time that must have been spent to prepare a trousseau, the endless hours that went into stitching, emboidering and making lace for these linens. I love to put the ones I’ve collected on my beds and table for the pleasure of my guests…and me.
I’ll showcase some of Jannine’s pieces each month. You may buy them directly from her via my Paypal account and have them shipped to you in a specially prepared box. Or, to avoid shipping costs, you can buy your linens and I will keep them for you on a special shelf in my “armoire à linge” until you come to La Forge to pick them up!

If you would like them shipped, the cost to the US is 39,85€/54,18$US for up to 5Kg, from 5-7Kg, the price is 46,75€/62,38$US. The deivery time once I receive your order is 5 days to a week.
