WHERE WE BEGAN
First Fruit Collection has been around for many years as a celebrated store in the Historic Town Square of Collierville, TN. Many people have witnessed the changes throughout these years. However, March 2012 brought the biggest change the store has seen, yet! Under the new ownership of designer, Ashley Toney, the store took a turn. First Fruit Collection has always had a French Country approach to design. Their new look has brought a fresh perspective to interior design while keeping the French Country roots.
Ashley and the girls have spent countless hours trying to select a style for First Fruit Collection. They are constantly being questioned, "What style would you say your store is?". Always with a laugh or smile, the response is, "We don't know! It's just the First Fruit Collection Style!". Ashley and the girls are always looking for new and fun ways to brighten and update homes, while keeping a current, yet timeless look.
