VISIT: Dunn & Sonnier invites you to join them for a 40th anniversary celebration Wednesday, May 1, 2024 from 5-7 pm at Dunn & Sonnier, 3433 Magazine Street. Dunn & Sonnier is best known for exceptional florals, but this Magazine Street staple first put down its roots as an antiques store. It continues to be a favorite haunt of decorators and in-the-know home shoppers, so we spoke with owner Stephen Sonnier to learn more about the antiques side of his business and to hear how it feels to celebrate 40 years of owning a small business.

LEARN: Mother’s Day will be here before you realize it, and the special woman in your life deserves a thoughtful gift. View our 2024 Mother’s Day Gift Guide for some local inspiration!
