Renaissance Market opened its doors in May of 1992, and is owned by husband and wife team, Mary Landry Hopkins and Jim Hopkins. Known throughout South Louisiana and beyond for their fine French antiques, the owners travel to France to personally purchase unique items each year.
Their personal touch is what sets the shop apart—fresh, homemade dishes from family recipes, hand selected fine French antiques, polished yet easy to wear clothing and jewelry, and elegant home décor. All of these fabulous finds reflect Mary’s discriminating and sophisticated style. Her personal attention and decorating ideas have earned Renaissance Market many loyal customers, who often request a home consultation for decorating assistance and placing newly purchased antiques.
APPAREL, JEWELRY AND ACCESSORIES
As Renaissance Market flourished, Mary continued to add new lines that fit the tastes of her clientele perfectly, including jewelry, scarves and other accessories. In late 2012, the time was right to fill another product niche that was lacking in the area— sophisticated clothing that was both comfortable and flattering.
Lafayette women were immediately drawn to the Sympli clothing line. To continue to keep pace with demand, an entire wing dedicated to housing Sympli was added. Renaissance Market has also expanded to carry handbags, scarves and jewelry designed by names such as Andrea Barnett, La Via Parisienne and Susan Shaw, and continues to add other top clothing designers to it’s repertoire. The Market’s selection of clothes and accessories is unrivaled in Lafayette, especially with the recent addition of vintage Chanel jewelry from Paris. To expand your unique style, visit us.
