French Willow

Our shop has been more than a mere retail space; it’s a vibrant community hub where creativity blossoms and friendships flourish. As we transition to an online-only model, our commitment to nurturing this creative spirit and connection remains unwavering.

Our product range reflects what our customers love and come back for with an inviting selection of gifts, home and garden, bath and body, puzzles and games. Our candles from Ember & Willow light up our selection too, known for their ability to create an inviting ambiance in any room. These aren’t just any candles; they’re a sensory journey, with scents that evoke memories and warmth.

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® remains a valuable part of our collection, beloved for its ability to bring warmth and personality to any space with just a few strokes. It’s not just about the paint, though; we provide all the tools, brushes, and finishes you need to complete your project with a professional touch.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and our range of kitchenware reflects this. Copper and brass mills are favourites for their functionality and flair, adding a touch of elegance to your cooking experience. But it’s not all about the tools; our selection of farmhouse essentials brings a rustic yet sophisticated charm to your kitchen décor. And for the foodies out there, our kitchenware section is like a secret recipe for style, mixing rustic charm with a dash of sophistication.

Our passion for unique finds extends to our furniture selection, where each piece is chosen for its story and style. From vintage finds to contemporary pieces, we aim to offer something that will resonate with your personal taste and complement your home’s aesthetic.

Even as we shift online, our commitment to bringing you products that inspire and delight remains unchanged. Keep an eye on our website at and follow us on Instagram @frenchwillow.home for the latest additions, style inspiration, and a behind-the-scenes look at how we bring our collection to life.

Though our doors in Mount Evelyn may close, the essence of French Willow continues to thrive online and at our Fable & Willow stall (F24) in Waverley Antique Bazaar, Garden Rd, Clayton, open every day of the week for your perusal. Here, we maintain our connection to the tactile world of antiques and collectables, providing a physical touchpoint for our online community.

As we embark on this new phase of our journey, we’re excited to continue sharing our passion for great design, quality craftsmanship, and unique products with you, wherever you are in Australia or beyond. This is not a goodbye to our wonderful hills and valley community but rather a “see you online”, where we will bring products and experiences to your doorstep. Keep an eye out for our local workshops that we plan to host in a lovely local space.

Thank you for being such a treasured part of our wonderful 4 years in Mt Evelyn. We are immensely grateful for your support and understanding as we embark on this new chapter.

Warmest regards, Michelle & the French Willow team.
