Sulphur man going Fleur de lis crazy over Saints

by Brandon Richards bio | email

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - Pierre Fontenot is a fan of the Fleur-de-lis flower. He's also a fan of the Super Bowl-bound New Orleans Saints.

It's therefore not surprising that he would combine his love for the two and sell black and gold fleur-de-lis at his antique/home décor store, Eighty-One, in Sulphur.

"We started doing it in LSU colors then we went to Mardi Gras colors," said Fontenot.

Fontenot says he got the idea when the Saints were inching closer and closer to a near perfect season. When the Saints beat the Colts to advance to the Super Bowl, Fontenot turned his idea into action.

Ranging in price from $7 to $75, Fontenot says his black and gold fleur-de-lys are very popular with people who live out of state. Fontenot says one reason is because his handcrafted fleur-de-lys are easy to ship.

"We just went crazy. We got Santa's elves making as many as we can in Saints colors right now," said Fontenot.

Another great thing, the fleur-de-lis can be placed almost anywhere in and outside the home.

To purchase your own Saints-inspired black and gold fleur-de-lis, give Fontenot's shop a call at 533-8181.
