BAY ST. LOUIS, Mississippi — Blue Rose Estate Sales is now open at 442 Main St., where Loiacano’s Gym was located. Jul Lee Dedeaux is manager and partner along with Herb Pursley and Philip LaGrange.
Dedeaux said the store carries high end, unique home decor and furniture including light fixtures and chandeliers plus some jewelry. “I do take select consignments as well,” she said.
The 4,200-square-foot store is filled with collectable glassware and china, Carnival glass, china made by Nippon, Noritaki and Havilland, chandeliers, armoires, antique sideboards and library tables. There’s also unique, hand-painted upcycled furniture painted by Herbert Pursley, who is a local artist
The Blue Rose Estate Sales partners had three antique stores pre-Katrina that Bay shoppers will remember: Court Street Station, Bay Emporium in the old Ramsey’s building and Magnolia Place mini mall at the corner of Main Street and Beach Boulevard. They opened the Blue Rose in Pass Christian as an antique store and restaurant.
Dedeaux said the merchandise is primarily from the South Florida area around Miami and Fort Lauderdale. “That’s where Phil lives and he scouts everything out,” she said.
Blue Rose also does estate liquidations, she said.
A soft opening Oct. 4 was held to coincide with Cruisin’ the Coast and since then,
Dedeaux said, she’s had great response to the store. “I am so floored by the traffic we’re getting in this store. We’re in a great location and local people are buying. We have had great support from the local community,” she said.
The store is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
