About Us

French Connections has been providing the Chatham County, North Carolina, area with a unique variety of French antiques, African art, and a large selection of imported fabrics from Normandy and Africa since 2000.

Located in the historic Thompson House (1900), in downtown Pittsboro, our building’s nostalgic atmosphere provides a charming backdrop for the unique treasures we’ve packed into every nook and cranny inside the shop and out.

Our merchandise is a reflection of the places we have lived and visited, and we are thrilled to bring our customers here in the U.S. a taste of France and Africa through the high quality products we continually procure from artists, small manufacturers, and personal contacts in both countries.

We’re constantly striving to update our website and store inventory to provide our visitors and community residents with the best shopping experience possible; that’s why were always open to customer comments and suggestions.

Drop by the store at 178 Hillsboro St., or shop with us here online, where you’ll always be treated to exceptional product variety, prompt shipping, and the friendliest customer service around!
