We have another downtown Jennings, Louisiana, find for you, and this time it’s on the Louisiana Antique Trail! Nova Barnes opened The Steamer Trunk in December of 2012 fulfilling her dream of having a shop on Main Street and loves to fill her shop with things her customers will “treasure and not just fill space.”
The Steamer Trunk is filled with so many fun finds ranging from antiques to clothing to an adorable little book nook! Nova also makes her own jewelry and will repair yours. They also repair and sell furniture, and her daughter makes the soaps and bath scrubs available.
One of our favorite things at The Steamer Trunk is her “Artist of the Month” series. Each month she features a different artist and sells their pieces in the store with all proceeds going directly to the artist. With no gallery in Jennings, this is a great way for local artists to get their name and works out to the public. If you’re an artist and would like to be featured please contact Nova; she’s always looking for new artists!
If you’re looking for a unique gift stop by The Steamer Trunk! Gift certificates and free gift wrapping is available. It’s located at 526 North Main Street in Jennings, Louisiana. Check out their website thesteamertrunkla.com and their Facebook page. Also take a look at the Louisiana Antique Trail website, louisianaantiquetrail.com, for other amazing antique shops.
And keep following along as we make our way along the Louisiana Antique Trail!
