Loulou’s Lost & Found

No offense, Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel, but Loulou’s is a great choice for funky place settings and accessories at a reasonable price. Some items are original, scavenged from old ships, hotels, and trains; some just reproductions; all are excellent for someone setting up house or just wanting to add to an eclectic collection.
