Operating a thrift shop has always been about the community and at the heart of JLNO’s membership. This fundraiser and community service dates back to 1927 when it first opened on Royal Street. It recently moved from its home on Freret Street where it had been since 1960, and its persistence over nine decades is a testament to our members leadership, diligence, and commitment to others.
The Junior League of New Orleans remains committed to continuing the legacy of Bloomin’ Deals as a signature JLNO program. We intend to move forward in a deliberate, transparent fashion that prioritizes JLNO’s mission and the impact our projects and members are able to make in the community. Over the next nine months, we will be examining the best ways to continue Bloomin’ Deals in a meaningful, mission-focused and impact-driven way. This will include holding several pop-up events for the public and our partners in various locations and venues around the city.
