WHAT IS THE HARE & THE HART?
The Hare & The Hart offers carefully curated gifts and goods. A family-owned business, we adore celebrating the beauty of the places that people love, embellishing the spaces surrounding them, and sharing in the extraordinary joy of the everyday.
As the exclusive home and designer of Toile of Tallahassee™ and the Hometown Toiles™ line, we invite you to visit our shop in Midtown Tallahassee at 1704 Thomasville Road.
The Hare & The Hart is:
ENGLISH AT HEART...
Anglophile to the core, Amy Hart was struck with the inspiration for The Hare & The Hart at a pub called The Jugged Hare in London. (And the idea for Toile of Tallahassee was sparked at the Northbank Restaurant upon seeing a modern London toile on its wallpaper and menus!)
…WITH A SOUTHERN SOUL...
Here in the gorgeous Southern big town/small city of Tallahassee, we are surrounded by rolling hills, hunting plantations, moss-draped oaks and long-leaf pines... not to mention the communal charm of southern hospitality, great food, and hugging good friends at church on Sunday mornings.
…(AND A FRENCH TWIST!)
Amy's mainly English ancestry is tinged with a bit of France through her French great-grandmother who lived in New Orleans... which naturally adds a French twist to her decorating sensibility (and personality!)
Amy Hart has forever dreamed of being a “shopgirl” à la Meg Ryan’s character in You’ve Got Mail. She considers her shop an extension of her home and warmly welcomes all who enter. Amy adores learning her customers’ stories as she witnesses them excitedly experience the products created with her art. An Air Force brat who landed in Tallahassee in 1987 for college and has lived here on and off (mostly on!) since then, Amy has planted roots in (and fallen in love with) her adopted hometown. A former teacher, she is a passionate reader, curious cook, dauntless decorator, faithful friend, self-admitted Anglophile, wife and BFF to Chris, and mother of Maddie and Charlie.
