Help me find a FDL in Houston--xmas gift
 
I cant believe Houston, Tx, a city 2 hours from Colonial France. A city within a short drive of numerous French-speaking Acadians, a city located on a BAYOU, a city connected with Louisiana by Oil, Rice, Crawfish, and Storms--- does not have a single Fleur De Lis gold pendant for sale.

Help me.

And dont ask the lady at Macys. Oh, no, she doesnt know what Louisiana is..... She's from the Middle East.

"You know--- Like the Saints have on their helmet..."
"What are Sainz?"

which is special, considering she's one of the 4 people here not from MEXICO. (Are you noticing more taquerias in New Orleans? hmmm.)

Im not mad at the lady... ( I smiled and was polite to her, and didnt gripe at her) In fact, I'm proud she's walking around with her face showing, and not being oppressed. She can hide in our house, if she needs.

I'm just saying why? Its like if I were in Canada, and I couldnt find syrup.

Fleur De Lis. Shouldnt be hard to find. We got hearts, we got past-present-future, we got lockets. I cant find a Fleur De Lis gold pendant. help.

ooooo... look thats exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. Thanks, Smash. You have good taste in pretty stuff for the ladies.

I gotta give the saleslady at the first place I stopped credit. She was Chinese. She wanted to know what I was talking about, so she asked could she see one, so she waited on the sidewalk, as I drove around, and showed her my truck's back window shoe-white artistry--- and she was like, "ohhhhhhh."

Interestingly, she didnt ask what "geaux" meant.

Anyway, there's a street here in Houston called Harwin---and it is a godsend. Its kind of a wholesale city, kind of like the French Market. Just like the rest of Houston, you get to meet interesting people from all over the world, but these guys did in fact know what the Fleur De Lis is, and they had all kinds of them for sale, tasteful, and not so tasteful. I, of course, chose, "not-so-tasteful," but I think they're going to be a hit!
