Junior League of New Orleans

Bloomin'Deals Thrift Shop

The operation of a thrift shop as a permanent Junior League of New Orleans fundraiser dates back to 1927, when the first shop opened on Royal Street. It later moved to Bourbon Street before relocating to its present Uptown buildings in 1960.

In addition to a paid professional staff, Bloomin' Deals is supported by League members who work volunteer shifts and are required to donate goods each year. 

Bloomin' Deals is only a few blocks from Tulane and Loyola Universities.

Throughout the year, Bloomin' Deals stocks a huge selection of new and used adult and children's clothing and shoes, designer-label clothing, housewares, furniture, books and much more. 

The Bridal Boutique at Bloomin' Deals

The Bridal Boutique at Bloomin' Deals is located in the annex next door to Bloomin' Deals.  The Bridal Boutique sells discounted new and gently used wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, mother-of-the-bride dresses and now grooms wear!

Wedding dresses are all under $500.

The Bridal Boutique is open from 10:00 am-1:00 pm the first and third Saturday of each month. 

The Bridal Boutique also accepts wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and mother-of-the-bride dresses for donation.
