A tour of The Corbel


From time to time I receive an email asking about our wonderful state of Louisiana.

Good places to shop, eat, visit...etc.

What an awesome opportunity for my sister and I to share with all of you.

So we vowed to tour our great state (nothing like road trips with sista's) and share them all with you!

With only time for a day trip, we headed North to Jackson, Louisiana.

It's about an hour drive for us.

We landed ourselves into a honey hole of a shop!


I won't spend a lot of time on the history of the shop because, quite frankly, they will do a better job than I ever could.
For directions and a awesome background of their store, visit their site here


When you arrive, be prepared to be transformed into another time and place.


It's wall to wall history meets modern. I love that!


As you enter, you are greeted with smiling faces and friends eager to share the stories this place contains.




You will find yourself looking up in awe of the cool lighting throughout the showroom.




I fell deeply for this blue fella... deep.


They have something for everyone here.



I thought of so many cute places I could use these memo boxes.



Demi Johns? They have em' in all shades and sizes.




And just when I thought we had seen it all...


She offered to take us in the back warehouse...

I about died!!!

Now, don't go thinking we were just that special.

They will take y'all too.

They are just that nice and insist you see the salvage items they are known for.


Every corner was stocked full of these chippy paint corbels.


Oh my!


The old doors go on forever.....


In love yet? 

I am.


Everything you see here has been rescued from demolition and rubble.

I love how they bring life back into these once loved pieces.


Shipments of fresh finds everywhere.




I hope you enjoyed our stop #1 of favorite places to visit here in the South.







 Just as the day was getting started and as usual, we were chatting 90 miles a minute...

We took a wrong turn that lead us right into something breathtaking!

...to be cont.

  6. Ow wow,, so beautiful. You make me want to drive to Lousiana and look around all these places you post about. My best friend and I and all of our little kiddos took off one day when they were younger and rode the Natchez Trace and stopped at all the little places along the way. That was so much fun. There were even cool little creeks for the kids to splash around in. I'd love to do it again.
