Ascension Parish’s, Consign and Design!

Ascension Parish Coffee Talk Episode #5
Consign and Design! Watch it on YouTube, Consign & Design

This week’s show is about local business in Ascension Parish, Consign and Design, Located in Prairieville Louisiana off of Airline highway. (In the same Plaza as the Sunset smoothie and Little Ceasars Pizza)


The store is a super brightly lit space filled with pieces new and old. The owner Amy Trahan was kind enough to invite me to interview her about her unique concept for a consignment shop.

She features many other design items like chalk paint for refinishing old pieces of furniture. This type of chalk paint you can even use on fabric and it doesn’t need wax. Save yourself a step and try it out.


Looking for unique scented candles, Consign and Design has several different fragrances that match up with luxury laundry soaps.

The furnishings in the store change quickly since it is a consignment shop so make sure to stop in often, you don’t want to miss out and on your new favorite piece that may come in.

Looking for something completely different? She has custom builders that will take your idea and build you a piece straight from your imagination, not sure what you want? Ask Amy Trahan her design advice and work together to make your masterpiece.


All in all, this is a super cool store here in Ascension Parish, Just another business making Ascension Parish a wonderful place to live.

If you’d like more information on Cosign and Design, visit their website @ or follow them on Instagram @ atcosignanddesign.

On a side note, the piece that was featured in the video (the tree that was custom made) is no longer available, After my husband saw this video he fell in love with it and I bought it for him for his birthday. But don’t worry she will be getting similar pieces in soon.

Coming Up This Saturday, April 8th, 2017!

At the Lamar Dixon Expo Center

Looking for something to do this coming up Saturday? Ascension Parish is hosting at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center the South Louisiana Crawfish Boil, Craft and Car Show! You can eat and explore all the different booths they have going on. The entry fee is ONLY $5.00 and if you have kids under the age of 12 they get in FREE!!!



There will be a cooking contest for boiled crawfish, a jambalaya cook-off, and crackling cook-off as well. For those of you who aren’t really into the cooking part of crawfish, you can always enter the crawfish eating contest. (I might do that since I can eat more than most grown men)

It isn’t just crawfish and Jambalaya, they will have shrimp stew and crawfish étouffée.



They will have 250 different craft booths! That’s a lot of cool stuff you can explore and discover!



Just like the festival’s namesake, a car show will be featured!

I hope to see Y’all out there, I know my family will be stuffed by the end of the day!

I tell you all this,

Many of you in Ascension Parish have heard of Sweet Robichaux, but may not know they have their own store now! The owners, Stephen and Jennifer Robichaux, were kind enough to let me pop in to take a look at their new shop and taste a few pastries.  It’s conveniently located off Highway 42. I know that morning traffic woes won’t feel as horrible after you make a quick pit stop into Sweet Robichaux.  Seriously, how can you have a bad day when you walk into a bakery that smells as heavenly as this place.  I had the opportunity to sample their cinnamon rolls. They are to die for!  They put them under the broiler for a few minutes with their cream cheese frosting, and they will warm you inside and out. They have croissants and muffins as well.FullSizeRender.jpg

This Isn’t Just A Breakfast Place!

Oh no, not at all! They have cleverly decorated cookies for all occasions. I suggest you visit their Facebook Business Page to see some of their photos for ideas for your next event. They also do simply decorated cakes with a delicious buttercream frosting and everyone I have spoken to about their cakes has said they are amazingly delicious.IMG_9968

They Will Be Expanding.

After talking to Stephen and Jennifer, they had mentioned that as business picks up and they get more settled, they will be adding to their menu.  They will be doing Burgers on store made Brioche buns and ready for quick pick up. They also said that they working on the perfect chicken salad recipe to add to their home made croissants. Doesn’t that sound delicious! I personally want them to start those right away; I LOVE a good chicken salad sandwich and then you add those amazing croissants with it, my mouth is already watering.IMG_9966

Don’t just take my word for it!  Stop in and try it yourself. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Another great new store making Ascension Parish a desired area in which to live.
