    I first opened for business in 1996. The shop has changed shape a few times in the past 11 years. Originally we were called Rock Bottom and sold music related items as well as vintage clothing. Four years ago I decided to follow my passion for hand made creations and French couture and created Marie Parie. Through the years and transitions I've enjoyed buying items of interest and whimsy, supporting artists, exploring my own creativity and building relationships with my customers.
