French General Trading
A piece of France tucked away in Frome, French General Trading has all things antique. With over 20 years of experience in sourcing gorgeous art and antiques from France, owner Polly is the go-to in the industry.
Step into the shop and browse everything from rustic French furniture such as garden tables and lamps to antiques you won’t find anywhere else. But at French General Trading it’s not just antiques, they also have a bar area where you can enjoy an ice-cold beer or glass of wine - it’ll feel almost like you’re on holiday! A completely unique spot, where you’ll find treasures like no other.
For over 20 years I have sourced all manner of items for private homes, hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes, delis, and other high-end retail shops.
The picturesque market town of Frome lies in the heart of Somerset, surrounded by vast swathes of open farmland, chalky ridges, undulating hills and valleys and generally stunning scenery at every turn. Explore the many cobblestone streets lined with an eclectic mix of independents and you’ll find everything from interior decor, quirky antiques and vintage clothing stores to children’s boutiques, florists and cafes.
On the first Sunday of each month between March and December, the streets of Frome become a pedestrian playground and the town welcomes a pop up community of producers, crafters and makers. Stroll through hundreds of stalls celebrating the best from local producers at the farmers market on Stony Street or the artisanal trinket filled suitcases and prams at the “suitcase sale” on top of Catherine Hill. This unique market celebrates the independent movers and shakers in the South West and draws thousands of visitors each year.View neighbourhoodView community
