Our Service PledgeWe stand behind our merchandise and descriptions and guarantee that all items are as stated. If an honest mistake is made, we will do our best to rectify it to your satisfaction. Please note: I ship items as quickly as I can, but it usually takes several days to process, pack and ship. The great majority of my items are at another location 15 miles away - they are not stored at my home. You must let me know if you need an item by a certain date.
About UsI have been a New Orleans-area antiques dealer for the past 20 years. I was a history major in college and have always had a love for beautiful old things. Come see me at our 2011 Magazine Street location in New Orleans! Items for sale on this site may also be displayed in one of my shops and are subject to prior sale. If you see something you love, don't wait! I specialize in fine English Victorian smalls, Pre-Vatican II religious items, historical memorabilia, and Victorian & Mourning jewelry/accessories. I am an authority on 19th century death culture and I give talks to groups on Victorian mourning and burial customs. I have advised the film industry on this topic. I am able to handle estate sales in the New Orleans/Mandeville/Baton Rouge areas. Downsizing? Don't have your garage/estate sale before you contact me! Call for details/terms.
