I have tried two different times to shop at this darling store--but no luck. The first time, I was totally ignored as the staff was chit-chatting with a friend. She never even acknowledged that I was in the store. I finally gave up. I suppose I expect a somewhat French shop to employ the French custom of acknowledging when people enter - a friendly " hello" would suffice.

The second time, the store was busy with other shoppers, but again, I finally gave up waiting to get the sales person's attention after about 20 minutes.

Olivine ... You don't want to leave

Helen Stroud , owner of Olivine is a Southern girl, and as such, has a flair for how to make one feel very comfortable in her fabulous new digs on Rice Blvd in the Village. Her sense of style and good taste is evident in in Olivine. You MUST go !!! You will not leave empty handed !

Wonderful place to admire everything that is French! The owner has a wonderful eye for classic linens, lamps and furniture. Great place to find that perfect gift or little trinket for your own home. Great selection of baby room decor and clothing. You must take a look inside this wonderful Houston establishment!

I travel to Houston several times a year, and this is my first stop to take care of all my shopping needs. I love their bedding---can't live without my Bella Notte quilts and sheets! I always stock up on my hostess and baby gifts while I'm there, too. Olivine also reminds me of the stores in the Saint Germain area in Paris...another favorite destination! Great fun chatting with the owner and store manager....they always know how to put things together for me, so my home looks fresh, timeless, and most of all, child and pet friendly!!

Pros: dog friendly, selection of unique gifts, fun & hip people

Cons: Wish they had an Olivine in the midwest!

I was in Houston and a friend of mine told be about this quaint and lovely shop. I could have spent hours in there. They had so many beautiful and chic things for your home. I especially loved all the Bella Notte linens. The staff was so knowledgeable and delightful which is rare these days. Olivine is a shop that you just have to see for yourself. It will not disappoint..

I love this shop and go in every once in a while to purchase a gift. The most recent time however, the salesperson was rude and slow to check me out. I'll probably still shop here, but I was disappointed.

A great, cozy place to shop for french goodies, soft baby things, Bella Notte bedding, saints, candles, chandeliers, perfumes, soaps, scents, frilly girly stuff..... the list goes on, and this sweet little shop is run by some very cool women, with very cool accents :) Oh, and the big fluffy blonde shop dog Pipi!
A dog friendly boutique in Houston, love it !
