Seasonal Trivets

Complete your Halloween party with our latest and completely original Legends of New Orleans Trivets ! These limited edition trivets feature original artwork inspired by local legends that raise hairs on the back of necks all throughout the Crescent City - Madame Marie Laveau the Voodoo Queen and The Rougarou the Swamp Monster ! Each trivet has a spooky story printed on the back so that you too can continue the tradition of telling the tales! They read:

Madame Marie Laveau is perhaps the most famed voodoo queen in the history of New Orleans. From the Crescent City to the tip of the Mississippi, tales of this enchantingly beautiful woman with a snake by the name of Zombie draped upon her neck would spread. Her profession in the dark arts of Louisiana voodoo would lure a multitude of souls in search of wishes, potions, and curses alike. She was known to help the local aristocrats communicate with the other side and even use her magic to influence the court system! It’s rumored that her power still radiates in the city today, 200 years after her death. One can still have their wishes granted by visiting her crypt in the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 if they dare disturb her rest...

The Rougarou is Louisiana's bayou-dwelling werewolf, and is a prominent figure in Cajun folklore. It is most often described as having a human body with the head of a wolf, with glowing red eyes and razor sharp teeth. Prowling amongst the cypress trees surrounding New Orleans, the legendary beast hunts its next victim - oftentimes feeding on the blood of children and Catholics who break their Lenten fasting! Those who survive staring into its eyes are doomed to become Rougarous themselves. As one of the many famous mysteries of Louisiana’s misty swamps, there are still sightings reported to this day...
