Apparently, Jennifer’s attitude is contagious because every customer left with a big grin on their face. Take a look at Sheila, one of the employees. Doesn’t she look like she loves her new job? Duh, Ye-es.
The store is chock-o-block with great finds, everything from antiques to art. To quote Jennifer; “It’s a fun, quirky shop on I-10 dedicated to the preservation of collectables, art, and fine crafts with an emphasis on Louisiana artists and products.” It’s a true statement, folks. You ought to see that place. It makes me proud to be represented there. Yes, you heard me right. My book, Secrets of the Old Ladies’ Club, has found a nest there down in Cajun Country. Go get you one, Cher! And as Jennifer says, “Come pass a good time!” It will be easy because as soon as you walk through the door, your spirits will be lifted by the sights, the scents, and the good ol’ Cajun music filtering through speakers in every room from the front to the back of the shop. My husband and I had to work hard to keep our feet firm on the floor, but our hearts were jumping and jigging all around with the jive tunes punctuating the air.
And, ohmygoodness, the art! Wait, let me rephrase that: the ART! I can’t put into words how wonderful it was to see so much art work from so many local artists. Enjoy the pictures below but keep in mind this is only a sample. There are 85 vendors to choose from so you’ll have to just go and see it for yourselves. You will not be sorry! It’s just a short trip down I-49 between Lafayette and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Take the 115 exit onto I-10 and there you are. You can’t miss it. Look for the building painted with all the cheerful colors.
Tell ’em Nan sent you…
And don’t forget, ya’ll, Pray for Peace. The whole world needs your prayers.
