Pippin McGee

When Kim Crouchet of Lafayette was pregnant with her first child, she found that it was difficult to locate quality baby furniture and accessories easily. “It was hard to find things that I liked, and even harder to get someone to explain the details of the product. When you are talking about your kids, you want to be able to trust the product.” Soon after giving birth to her second child, she opened Pippin McGee, a children’s comprehensive furniture and accessory store.

De Madera

It is all the customers’ fault. It was the customers who caused De Madera to be open seven days a week. “We originally used our building to store our furniture,” admits co-founder Joel Davis. “We were only open three days a week; Saturday, Sunday and Monday. People saw our furniture through our windows and started to knock on the door. We had to open our doors seven days a week instead.” Read more »

Want to find eclectic, innovational, solid hardwood furniture that is hand made? Then, Christian Street Furniture is the place to go. “We have a wide variety of one of a kind pieces and since they are hand made, chances are you won’t see an identical piece anywhere,” says Louis Schaff the general manager. The design of the furniture is so flexible that the same piece would look great in a traditional setting or in a home that has a more modern flare. Although most of the furniture is new, they also have furniture that can claim a piece of history. Read more »

Bedroom Galleries from Cordell

Few of us realize that we spend about one third of our lives in our bedrooms. It is what we see the first thing in the morning and last at night. For those two reasons alone it should be the room that best expresses our most intimate and personal preferences. Luxurious or sparse, romantic, cozy, or dramatic are all appropriate bedroom styles so long as the mood is peaceful and comfortable.

A bedroom is more than a place for sleeping. It is a sanctuary from the stresses of everyday life. Bedrooms are regarded as private domains, faithful reflections of their occupants. The whole function of the bedroom has been going through changes. It has become the ultimate retreat, a place where we can not only rest but also multitask. Read more »

The Crab Trap

If it were physically possible, seafood would show up in Louie Lipps’ blood. Without a doubt, it is in his upbringing. Those unfamiliar with his Crab Trap in Frenier may know of or have heard tales about Frank and Rita’s Mama Lou’s Seafood Restaurant in Little Woods. Lipps’ dad owned the place from 1962 to 1965. It was over the water, about 250 feet from the railroad tracks, and it was notorious as much for its food as for its party rentals. Read more »
