C'est La Vie opens on Main Street
Rockland — C'est la Vie at 369 Main St. became the newest business to open in downtown Rockland June 18 — a consignment shop selling items ranging from quality clothing for men and women to jewelry, accessories, fine art and art decor, and unique gifts.
"C'est la Vie, it means "That's life [in French]," said owner Holly Desjardins, of Camden. "People are going to be bringing in all sorts of things to reuse, reinvent, repurpose,and recycle. So it's going to be a fun shop. This has been a dream of mine for years."
C'est la Vie has an alterations seamstress on site. The store is open Mondays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. except Thursdays, and Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Desjardins said her entrepreneurial know-how comes from being a chef. She said she cooked for clients, who included singer Jimmy Buffett, international investor Michael Dingman, and art collectors Jay and Jean Kislak.
