This chapter examines the issues of consumer citizenship and the republicanization of the marketplace in Paris, France. It explains that the burgeoning alliance between home and marketplace was forged and fostered by two convergent cultural constructions of the fin de siècle. French foyer and consumer marketplace were linked by the positioning of the artist-consumer in the bourgeois home and by the construction of a domestic consumer who attended to the needs of the family who later became a consumer-citizen who served the French Republic. It argues that the model of the consumer-citizen can be understood as a solution to new dilemmas engendered by the creation of the artist-consumer.
