  Many times when our clients come to the store, they seem to slow down and enjoy themselves and as one customer has said "avail himself of his heart's desires"!  Other shoppers remember things when seeing certain items, some have emotional moments reflecting on memories of grandparents and places they have visited.  Couples stroll, friends laugh and visit, Moms and daughters create tea time memories of their own and new looks for rooms. Decorators find that item that is ''just right'', and some just leave with ideas for their own items they possess already!  Most of our repeat customers become friends and always share their hearts with us!  We love to call these "Kindred Moments".

Three Generations

Bernice Blackwell and her daughter, Chelsea, frequented Kindred Hearts, along with her mother in law, Miss Janice. The three generations have always enjoyed the visits together, Chelsea enjoyed our former pet, "Mamacatt", as her mom would have her moments alone for awhile. It was great for me to watch her ''grow up'' here! Bernice is now one of our wonderful vendors.
I remember how excited they all were when she became a part of us, but she has always been "Kindred" to me!

A Soldier's Memorial

A couple from a  nearby town had lost their son in Iraq. They were looking for something worthy of displaying his flag, letters, metals and items of accomplishment. During one of our Open Houses, they spotted a display case and fell in love with it. It was not for sale, but one of our ladies decided to part with it, as they shared with her about their son. It brought tears to everyone present. We were able to pray with them and sent them home happy with the purchase. Upon other visits they have told us thank you many times, as it was just perfect for what they wanted.

Replacing A Homey Atmosphere

After Katrina, two therapists from New Orleans came in looking for Parlor furniture to replace the look and feel of the homey atmosphere of their practice before the storms destruction.  They were drawn to a parlor suite that was just perfect! As they sat in the chairs and sofa and touched the pieces, they relaxed and admitted they had found what they wanted, so that the clients and patients could also sink down into its charming comfort. When they came back to pick it up, one of the ladies with them also found the exact type of chest a grandparent had and bought it, finding the same writing on the back of it as they remembered as a child!

A Sweet Surprise

A regular customer and her daughter would visit the store and plan what they wanted to do in an upcoming "redeco"! She had purchased several pieces and built upon them as she found them.  She put a "Shabby Chic" dresser from the early 1800's on Lay-away.  A gentleman friend saw it and asked if it was she that had procured it.  Feeling comfortable telling him yes, as he also had purchased furniture for his own "redeco" of an 1800 home, he insisted on paying it off for her.  He instructed me not to tell her who it was. She was happily amazed when she came in to pay it off! "Nowhere in this world would this ever happen to me but here!" she said. So sweet to see an admirer bless her with this Kindred Moment!

Lagniappe Angel

Miss Mary and her daughters are Triple Kindred Hearts. They drive from three different towns and meet at the shop to relax, enjoy the music, the scented candles and the atmosphere looking for those angels and objects that fulfill hearts desires and bring back memories of a lost loved one. One day Mary looked like she needed her moments alone as she strolled. She came to the counter to check out. As always we exchange friendly words and catch up. While bagging her items in a special way, an angel was slipped into the bag, no charge. She said it made her day!  Later, she shared her heart with me and all that was going on that day and how it lifted her spirits to be there and to be blessed with her "Lagniappe Angel" that she later placed upon her sons grave.

A New Beginning

A Bridal shop owner had lost almost everything in her shop during Katrina.  Moving to this area, she found Kindred Hearts Antiques, loved it, came often and shared how it reminded her of her own quaint business in Chalmette.  One day a soothing classical song was playing, she teared up and told us it was what she used to play in the background during business.  She became encouraged and decided to reopen her own new shop in Livingston.  She had found out that ceiling high floodwater had just stopped right before ruining some stock they had stored safely on the second floor.  They lowered it down through a window and drove it away to begin again and create new "Kindred Moments" too!
