A cluster of fabulous shops on West Short Street in Lexington includes the famous gift store L.V. Harkness and Debbie Chamblin's Belle Maison Antiques. Traveling to France with her husband for business, Debbie used to scour the flea markets in Paris. That was 8 or 9 years ago. When she brought home a huge shipment of her findings--beautiful furnishings and objects for indoors and out--and had a trunk sale here in town, the sale was a hit and Belle Maison was born.
