Craig is an Army veteran with 26 years of service, retiring in 2002 as an Army Colonel. Subsequently, he went to work with an emergency management company for twelve years supporting and leading their defense programs. With his leadership experience, an MBA and business experience Craig leads the business side of Treasures.

Clara was an Army wife, designer and decorator. Also a crafter over the last 40 years, she learned her way around business and direct sales. Clara is responsible for the creative side of the business; décor of the retail shop, purchasing of merchandise and staging the Estate Sales.

Our Estate Sales start with understanding the needs of our clients. Whether it is to assist in the settling of an estate because of the loss of a loved one or just supporting a downsizing initiative, we will maximize sales and profits for our clients by cleaning, staging and conducting a professional sale.

With our extensive travel and a lifetime of collecting we have gained insights and experience into what to sell that is aesthetically pleasing and valuable. From this vast experience, Treasures was born. Purchases for our retail shop are carefully selected to ensure a unique blend of items makes for a treasure trove of goods for customers to browse and shop. Local artists and antiques provide an eclectic shopping experience.

All of this is in the Cajun Village. Treasures is located in the Cantrell Place, built around 1800, an antique itself. Treasures delivers to a 25 mile radius for free. Thereafter, we charge only $2 per mile. Additionally, Treasures routinely attends estate sales and auctions and continually rotates its merchandise to ensure new and exciting merchandise is available every time you shop. Craig and Clara look forward to greeting you, taking your request, and getting to know you better.
