How Long Have You Been At This Address?

We opened this gallery on Magazine Street two and a half years ago, as this area of New Orleans was growing into a shopping destination for both locals and tourists. I was initially focused on another space when by happenstance I ran into a friend who was restoring this site.”

What’s The History Of The Building?

Mignon Faget exterior“The building was built in 1883 and was originally a grocery store. The recent restoration won the Louisiana Preservation Alliance Award in 1999.”

What Features Make This Store Stand Out?

“A special feature of this gallery is that it is a corner location and has a large amount of natural light — the 14 foot ceilings also give it an open and airy feeling. Tropical plants both inside and outside make it into a cottage garden. The cabinetry is also outstanding; there’s a group of beautifully hand-crafted Louisiana antiques found at auction in the Cajun country. The antique pieces are in harmony with the modern cabinets which are hand-made by skilled craftsmen.”

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
