Clara Ida Frances ribbon cutting of historic renovated building 10 am Thursday, June 26

Anita Williams - Sunday, June 22, 2014


Join Us at Clara Ida Frances, Winnsboro, Texas, for a community ribbon cutting on Thursday, June 26th at 10:00 a.m. The Winnsboro Chamber of Commerce is coordinating this special event and we invite all of you to celebrate the new store in its new location at Main and Elm. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony.

Peter Schma, the owner of Innertex Construction and a longtime Texas commercial contractor, restored the 113-year old brick building to its glory days. The building features the original tin ceiling; marble tiled entry, and the prismatic transom windows. After years of neglect and water damage, the building’s pier and beam foundation was replaced with concrete and stained with a warm amber finish. The new storefront windows and exterior cornice compliment the beautiful brick façade that was discovered hidden under previous layers of exterior siding. 

Peter is the husband of Janice Schma, the owner of Clara Ida Frances. Together they have lovingly and painstakingly transformed this historic building into a central beacon for the growing downtown corridor. The city of Winnsboro and its determined merchants are creating a modern day renaissance for the historic and cultural arts district.  Clara Ida Frances is proud to be a vital part of this Main Street hub.

Janice calls Clara Ida Frances, a lifestyle and gift store. It’s 3,000 square feet of retail space is filled with home accessories, furniture, several lines of fine women’s casual clothing, a kitchen and garden area, haberdashery, bedding and linens, personal care products, Texas cigars, vintage restoration and painting workshops, and very soon, we will offer a selection of great California boutique wines and West Coast Premium Coffee.

The store is open for business 6 days a week from 10 a.m. Call us a 903 – 342 – 6137 or check us out at www.claraidafrances.com and don’t forget to Like Us on Facebook/ClaraIdaFrancesInc. Be part of the ribbon cutting on the 26th, we would not be here without our loyal customers and neighbors. See you soon.
