If finding something special and unique is what you have been searching for then please let me introduce you to Joie De Vivre (pronounced Joe de vive)
Diane Docherty-Roy is the proud owner and Aromatherapist of this Unique Shop In Historic Downtown Port Hope. Situated at 45 Walton Street, this French-Style and very trendy Shop boasts an array of Handmade Products many of which are made by the owner. Originally from the City of Montreal Diane started on her journey as a trained Aromatherapist some thirty years ago (30 years). Having become a Licensed Aromatherapist she opened her first shop in Montreal. After several years, life happened and her children came along. Including a son who just recently graduated from University.



Life eventually lead Diane to the town of Port Hope and after raising her young children who are all grown adults now. She decided to enter the Retail Market again by opening up Joie De Vivre just short of five years ago. It is obvious that Diane is not only an expert at what she does but she is also very passionate about her business.
