NEW SCENTS FROM NOUVELLE CANDLES

Our co-owner and head buyer, Tara, has selected the best new Nouvelle scents for this upcoming season. These scents are grapefruit blackberry, salted caramel and lemon, pomegranate peel and amber, tuscan currant, and crepe myrtle. Each of the candles are hand poured, the old fashion way, in small batches blended by master chandlers. Not only does this ensure the high quality of the product, but also keeps the candles incredibly fresh. Nouvelle also uses a proprietary blend of waxes, which ensures the maximum saturation of fragrance. Tara's selection combines a passion for special one-of-a-kind products with a taste and love for the hand-made quality of each candle. Be sure to stop by one of our locations to pick out your favorite scents!

About Nouvelle Candle Company:

Nouvelle Candle Company was founded in 2001. We take great pride in the fact that our product is blended, poured, and packaged by hand in our production facility located in the heart of South Louisiana. We feel that a candle should accomplish several things when it is lit. Above all, we believe that a Nouvelle candle should fill your home with an aroma that is pleasing for a long period of time. Our product achieves these tasks while being retailed at a competitive price. Simple yet classic packaging, warm muted colors, and divine custom blended fragrances join together to invoke a sense of old world charm that is Nouvelle.

John Derian
Picture Book 

 

as seen in the news-click here

John Derian’s home goods empire reaches far and wide—in addition to the four John Derian stores he owns in New York and Massachussetts, his products are sold by more than 600 retailers worldwide, including Neiman Marcus, ABC, and Gump’s in the United States; Conran and Liberty in the UK; and Astier de Villatte in Paris. It all started with his now-iconic collectible plates decoupaged with 19th-century artwork sourced from old and rare books, a process that credited him with elevating the decoupage technique into fine art. Over the past 25 years, the brand has expanded greatly to include home and general design gifts and products.

Now, for the first time ever, comes the book John Derian fans have been waiting for. Culled from the thousands of images that have appeared in his biannual collections, here is an astoundingly beautiful assortment of more than 400 full-bleed images in their original form. From intensely colored flowers and birds to curious portraits, hand-drawn letters, and breathtaking landscapes, the best of John Derian is here. The result is an oversized object of desire, a work of art in and of itself, that brilliantly walks the line between commerce and art, and that is destined to become the gift book of the season.

Les Ceramiques de Lussan

Heidi Caillard started making ceramic Guinea Hens in 1974 in the small town of Lussan in the Provence Region of the south of France. These very popular elegant birds come in a variety of colors which can stand alone or be mixed and matched to suit your own taste and designs. These French ceramic guinea hens are available at all three of our locations.
 


Créme de la Créme in downtown Frederick, MD

Créme de la Créme, offering a wide range of French and Italian influenced tableware, furniture, linens and gifts, is located at 207 North Market Street in historic downtown Frederick. It is the company’s first location in Maryland. 

The new location has 3,500 square feet of retail space. “We are excited to begin a new chapter with Créme de la Créme and bring our concept to Frederick, with its vibrant downtown scene and thriving retail community,” said Tara Wegdam, co-owner and buyer. 

“Everyone I’ve met has been so friendly and helpful,” said Tara Wegdam, who has been working to get the store merchandised to open earlier than originally anticipated. “We have experienced an exceptionally warm welcome even prior to opening our doors and look forward to meeting many more friends and neighbors in the coming weeks,” Wegdam remarked.

The Frederick Créme de la Créme will be open Monday through Thursday from 11-7, Friday and Saturday from 11-8 and Sundays from 11-6. The store can be reached at 240-651-1714.

OUR LOCATIONS

MIDDLEBURG, VA

Our first store opened in Middleburg, VA, a perfectly quaint town for the vibe and aesthetic that Crème de la Crème is all about. You will not come upon a Starbucks or McDonald's in a walk around the tidy and tiny streets of Middleburg.  A guarded, private village about 40 miles west of Washington, DC; visitors can get a glimpse of the country life by visiting local stores, wineries and taking in the beautiful scenery.

 Frederick, MD

 Crème de la Crème in Frederick is the newest location. Opening in 2016, this fabulous store location is away from the strip-malls and outlets. We found a perfect place to call our new home in the heart of old town Frederick. We offer a charming shopping experience that we wanted to take part of. Pocketed alongside other local retailers and shops, this location is great for a quick weekend escape.
