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.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
