My name is Patti. I went into this store today. I had just bought a coffee and didn't realize until I got to the door that I couldn't bring it in as there was a sign on the door. I thought I would ask if I could just leave it behind the counter. I had one foot in the door and the employee was waiting for me! "You can't bring bring that in." I opened my mouth but before I could say anything she started shaking her head no and repeating "no! absolutely not." She kept repeating it until I closed my mouth, even though nothing had been said by me and I definitely had not moved. I was really taken aback. I was terribly embarrassed at the way she spoke. I just turned and quietly left. I will not return. I do take responsibility for entering the store, one step, with my latte when there was a sign on the door. I shouldn't have. I also shouldn't have been spoken to like that or humiliated.
A super-sized version of the strip mall staple. – The Scene
Everyone knows what to expect from the local Hallmark store, but Rose Lynn's, tucked in its own corner of concrete in old Metairie, sells a mass of interesting gift items besides the requisite trademarked greeting cards, wrapping paper and Precious Moments figurines. Sure, there are hipper gift shops in the area, but none perhaps as dependable for everything from a first communion to grandpa's birthday.
Dog lovers will find an entire aisle dedicated to their furry obsessions, including mugs featuring a favorite breed's likeness, specialty shampoo, treats, bowls, picture frames, Christmas ornaments and ceramic figurines. Other favorites include the Over the Hill section, home of the "50 sucks big time" pacifier, and spinning racks of stickers frequented by preteen girls. Around the holidays, expect to see lots of Metairie moms filling out their miniature Christmas villages.
