About La Provence

The shop was founded in 1997 by Frenchman Jean Francois Sierra and his partner, American Artist, Bill Chisholm.  Their vision was to bring a touch of Southern France to the States. 

In the Spring of 2006, they entrusted their gift shop to Dawn Noble.  Her love of travel and entrepreneurial spirit made her the perfect fit.  A francophile at heart and her previous adventures throughout Europe and Scandinavia have helped guide her vision for the shop.

Since 2006 the team at La Provence has grown!  After getting married in 2007, Dawn and her husband Pete have welcomed 3 daughters to the team.  You've most likely met 1 or maybe all 3 of them if you've visited the shop.  They are always very excited to work alongside Mom at the shop.  

You can visit the shop year round in the Seaside Village of Rockport, Massachusetts.


A must shop to visit when in Rockport. Beautiful items, love the tablecloths.

Absolutely one of my favorite shops in Rockport!!!
