How did you get into the business?

My husband retired early and we were looking for a way to stay in New Orleans.
 

Where does your inspiration for your inventory come from?

Growing up in Paris and making many trips there has certainly had an influence, but many times local artists will approach us, which is wonderful!
 

Is there anything you regret selling?

Yes! Many years ago we carried this artist called Julie Silvers. She made these colorful totem poles with different shapes on them. I never saved one for myself, and I still think of them.
 

What are your favorite pieces right now?

We have some same sex marriage pieces, like our two kissing fish, two women or two men. I think it’s great and a sign of the times.
 

Where are your favorite places to travel?

I just go where my children are, New York and Mexico City, and luckily they’re great places to go hunting for unusual gifts and accessories – I always keep my eyes out.
 

What three things would you save from a fire?

Well, we did have a fire and you don’t have that much time. I also lost my house in Hurricane Katrina, and the things I miss most are my cookbooks, photographs and my wedding dress. However at the end of the day, they are only things.

Where are your favorite spots in New Orleans?

Goodness, so many: Commander’s, Tommy’s, Galatoire’s, Clancy’s and at home!
 

What’s your favorite drink?

Either my homemade green juice or a pinot grigio!
