European Splendor, a locally-owned retail store and gift shop specializing in European furniture, hand-decorated Polish pottery, traditional and contemporary Bohemia Crystal, soaps and lotions from France, and much more, is hosting an open house to celebrate their one year anniversary marking the store opening on Frankfort Avenue. The special event will take place at European Splendor, 2232 Frankfort Avenue, Louisville, KY, during the Frankfort Avenue Trolley Hop, on Friday, September 29th, from 6:00 10:30 P.M.

Store owners Susan and Matt Straub reopened this store in September 2016 after a 10-year hiatus from the business. Having lived in Europe for several years, and with nearly two decades of industry experience, the couple enjoys sourcing and selling hand-crafted European items with superior workmanship at affordable prices.

"We love finding beautiful well-made products for our shop and sharing them with customers who truly appreciate quality and craftsmanship" explains store owner Susan Straub. "And we just returned from a buying trip to France so we're particularly excited to showcase some of our newest products."

As a way to celebrate their first anniversary in the Frankfort Avenue location, and to thank the loyal customers who make their business a success, special discounts will include:

  • 20% off all hand-decorated Polish Pottery including large serving bowls, casserole dishes, plates, platters, soup/salad/cereal bowls and mugs
  • 20 to 50% off table lamps for your home or office, featuring a timeless style that complements any traditional decor
  • 30% off select dining tables, buffets and sofas, finely crafted and built to last

  • One thing that makes European Splendor unique, compared to other area furniture stores and gift shops, is the hand-made quality and affordability of their products. "Just because something is finely crafted doesn't mean it needs to be over-priced," explains store co-owner Matt Straub, "We enjoy finding heirloom quality pieces of European furniture and offering them at fair prices many people can afford."

    European Splendor will continue their anniversary celebration discounts through Saturday, September 30, 2017. Store hours are currently Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and by appointment.

    Launched in 2004, the FAT Friday Trolley hop is held throughout the year on the last Friday of every month from 6 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. attracting thousands of people to participating shops and restaurants along Frankfort avenue and the surrounding area. During this special monthly event, which includes free trolley rides, many area businesses also provide special entertainment, complimentary refreshments and unique discounts.
