What's in a name?

bi·jou

ˈbēZHo͞o,bēˈZHo͞o/

adjective

1. (especially of a residence or business establishment) small and elegant.

noun archaic

 1. a jewel 

My home is my bijou. As I believe the neighborhood of Church Hill, is Richmond's. 

I find names to be a fascinating part of the human experience, and who we are has a way of shinning through to allow our names to really become us. I couldn't imagine myself as anything other than a Victoria, nor would I want to.

Similar to the items we rescue and offer, my home, my neighborhood, and my city, were all once discarded/forgotten about jewels. Jewels that have stolen my heart before they were polished up, and have come to mean more to me than just a place where I reside. They have become a part of me, and are shaping and molding me everyday into who I am to become. No matter where I go in life, or where I will end up, they will always be treasured jewels that remain close to my heart.

Bijou Hill means more than just a name of a shop – it is a piece of me and my story. It means being able to find the beauty in the discard, while connecting with others whether past or present. It means adding value to your life, home, & closet, with pieces that make your heart go pitter-patter, rather than just filling your life with low quality yet overpriced, will not stand the test of time, unethical, trendy products.

Everything we offer tells a tale of those who have come before, and my hope is that you'll hear it and feel it enough, to want to make it a part of your own. Wherever your life leads, may your uniqueness shine boldly and brilliantly, like a bijou – a rare, one-of-a-kind jewel.
