Little did I ever realize we would have this beautiful little shop in this lovely historic town! My husband's mother was always so wonderfully talented at decorating and choosing items for sale in her shops. I always loved coming to Ste. Genevieve to help her and Dad during festivals. She really started Odile's, named after her mother, in early 1990 at its present site. I was still teaching high school English, my husband was busy at his job, but we told Mother that if she ever decided to sell, we wanted first dibs!


Little did we realize that two years later Jack's gifted mother would succumb to cancer. We bought the business from the estate, and therein began Odile's Linen and Lace, Etc. as it is today. I really think Mother would be pleased to how her shop has grown so!
