Fleur De Lys

Modern Mercantile

Long ago, the mercantile was the heart of every town. It was the place you'd find everything you need and stay connected with friends and neighbors. We think you'll have the same feeling here.

Our Purpose

We strive to make a positive impact by being of service, spreading kindness, and offering quality products that uplift and enlighten your everyday experience.

At Fleur De Lys we believe...
~Shopping should be an experience.
~Gifts should come from the heart.
~Design should follow whim, not rules.
~Customers should be treated like family.
~Dogs should never wait in the car.
~It's not just the thought that counts, there should be gifts too.
~Sharing dessert is over rated.
~Life is a special occasion, always use the good stuff.

Willie: Sales Specialist

Willie, short for Wilhelmina, has been delighting customers and "guests" for over 45 years, including 17 years at Disneyland, spending part of her career as a Disney Ambassador. It's no surprise that she loves to meet people and offers exceptional care to everyone.

But what may be surprising is that she speaks three languages (English, Dutch, and Frisian). Willie's parents are from Friesland, a province in the Netherlands, and she has many great stories of her heritage. Willie loves to knit, travel, and read. Her favorite book is "Rebecca" by Daphne du Maurier.

Whether you're adorning your home or yourself, or shopping for a gift, Jamie will make sure you look your best. Jamie has one daughter and a grandson who are her pride and joy. Any chance they get, she & her husband are heading out of town for some real life face time with their precious boy.

Jeff: Operations Assistant

NOT PRESENT ON PHOTO DAY. Jeff is more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it. He has an artistic eye and a talent for capturing a unique perspective. He's also great behind the scenes! Jeff is responsible for keeping things running smoothly at Fleur De Lys. He oversees all aspects of the receving side of the operation as well as maintaining inventory data, administrative details, and pretty much anything else to keep us in order. But don't be fooled, he has been known to make regular appearances on the sales floor and is quick to help in any way he can.

Tex Ritter: Dad/Handyman

Some of you may have seen this guy around the store, that is when he slows down long enough to get a look. This is Shannon’s dad. He retired in 2010 and soon realized he wasn’t cut out for a retiring lifestyle. He’s been coming here ever since to help out.

He unpacks and tickets our shipments, cleans up after us and keeps us all in line. He entertains us daily with his “Tex-isms” and keeps us grounded with his philosophical reminders like, “sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug.”

Buddy: Shop Dog
Buddy: Shop Dog

Anna Marie will often be accompanied to work by her true love and first assistant, Buddy, the shop dog extraordinaire.

He can often be spotted behind the register curled up asleep in his bed or poking his nose through the front counter to get a sniff of the visitors.

and we'll take you back to a simpler time, when visiting your corner store felt like coming home.
