all right if you’ve spent time shopping in denham springs in the antique district there’s a good chance you may have spent some time checking out the beautiful rustic furniture the wooden benches the candles the unique snacks and even the unique gifts that make up your shop blue door market uh blue door market owner jeremy labord is joining us today we’re going to discuss not only what blue door market offers and what they’re all about but also a bit about your life you grew up here a lifelong resident that’s right so welcome to local leaders of podcast jeremy labord thank you guys for having me so blue door market is one of my favorite furniture shops i have a big affinity for furniture as as anybody who knows me would know so i want to i definitely want to talk about everything to do with blue door market but i want to get an idea of who you are and how you got in the furniture business so tell me a little bit about where you grew up where you went to high school all that kind of stuff okay well uh i grew up here in dunham springs went to school here uh been here 46 years so since i was three years old wow yeah you’re lifelong life long graduated from denham high yep go jackets that’s right 91. you graduated from there and what did you do after that well i’ve worked a little construction i’ve had a couple different businesses i’ve done a lot of different things but been in the furniture business for a while my wife’s family was in the furniture business so since we’ve been together i’ve been in the furniture business basically gotcha gotcha and i’d imagine you had a pretty good interest in furniture and all those sorts of things even maybe before you got you know whole head wholeheartedly involved in it so uh have you always been someone that’s wanted to kind of you know mess with wood and sell wood and buy furniture and and especially rustic pieces like y’all have which i love those pieces uh that’s a that’s a big deal these days especially yeah i mean more toward the rustic part unique furniture different stuff that’s the things that interest me i always thought those things were interesting so absolutely and you have kind of a name here because you were a famous basketball player back in high school i do want to mention that uh look no joke man all district and all parish in high school and basketball you still play uh not too much anymore no too many injuries getting too old i know i have played the last few years but lately no yeah man it’s amazing you know back in the day we could just run up and down a court and now it’s like you’re back after you know you jump three feet going up to the tenth floor no more that’s for sure that’s for sure so in the questionnaire we that we sent you um we asked you to name your biggest influence and you listed your dad yeah uh cecil aboard who i have known since i was nine years old i didn’t know that absolutely i remember the first day i met your dad uh he was in the flea market baton rouge ever uh i think it was over by broadmoor theater it was broadmoor theater yeah the building doesn’t exist anymore right been gone but yeah and i remember i was in the baseball cards and he or not i credit your dad with getting me into that hobby because um he loved it and so that kind of made me love it and of course nine-year-old kid i had what 50 cents or whatever bought a couple packs first pack i ever opened back in my day it was jose canseco’s rookie card yeah i pulled it yeah and i was hooked from there on out i’m like you know that was a big deal i mean that was like ten dollar card which is a million dollars to a kid like that’s right yeah uh so i never stopped going by to see your dad many years later he opened up jason’s right there in baton rouge and uh and i would go there and and it was like a coffee shop sit around you talk about uh talk about baseball cards and stuff of course you and i talked to you strangely enough you weren’t as active in it as as your dad was as far as collecting and all those sorts of things but certainly made an impression on you he did you know my dad always believed in me yeah and uh always everything he did he did 100 with passion and so i kind of took that after him and anything i ever wanted to do he just backed me up and so it just gave me confidence to not be scared to try things and yeah it’s a it’s a it’s a huge thing and and you know it’s an as a dad i hope that my kids one day say that i was a someone who was very influential in their life in a positive way so that’s a big deal um but you made a key statement there that was hard work i mean that kind of gets you where you want to go in in life no matter what field you’re in you know kind of regardless and and uh so it’s a good it’s good that he passed that on to you and and uh obviously you’re successful because of it and because of those lessons that that we learn with kids we don’t even realize we’re learning right that’s right yeah so um you have some you mentioned your wife’s family and uh they are also in you know the retail business similar to what cecil was where you kind of probably learned some early skills on retail through him owning a business watching him own a business and you know businesses even when they’re successful they’re not always uh easy right they’re you know you got to build something you got to walk before you can run you’ve got to you got to take take it and step so it’s always nice to be surrounded by business owners to where you can do that uh my father-in-law owns truck and trailer world truck and trailer world springs and then my wife’s store is furniture liquidators in baton rouge okay yeah okay well you’re yeah you’re you’re rocking and rolling with business people around you bro that’s a good thing that’s a good thing so you the best thing about that is you can learn from what other people are doing right you can take that and you can apply it towards your business uh you know the good parts of it and and uh hopefully it’s beneficial for everybody so you opened uh you opened blue door market in 2019 that’s right july of 2019. july of 2019 and uh take me back kind of jeremy to to your thought process on that was it i mean i’m sure that this you don’t just wake up one day and say i’m opening up blue door mark i mean it was it a lot of kind of do i want to do this is it going to be successful because i know when i opened my business it was it was a little stress there right you know you want that guarantee right that’s right we um i thought about it for a while we were thinking of different ideas and uh something to do i actually was thinking of something small just to kind of take up some time make a little money on the side i didn’t realize it was going to get this big yeah i’m glad it did but um yeah we took we uh we took a shot july 2019 and it never looked back it’s grown since so yeah yeah it really has and it’s it’s a beautiful store over there uh they have something for everybody we’re gonna get into all that and kind of talk about some of the interesting things you have in there other than just furniture i mean you’ve got a wide array of options at blue door market so you know when you open a business like you did in 2019 the two biggest struggles at least for me when i was opening my business was the location and the name okay the location makes total sense but you didn’t start out in that location tell me about that well we we wanted to be in the antique district um in here in denham but there wasn’t anything available so we found a spot about a block away um and uh so we we gave it a shot we thought it was close enough to be in walking distance you know and and we did have a few people walk over but mostly you know we gained our customers through social media sure um but we realized real quick to get to the point we wanted to get to that we needed to get in the district you know so we waited and um in march we moved into the district so yeah was the spot rented and then it became available or was it just something you had your eye on for a while i was looking at different area different spots and i had a few people in the area you know keeping their eye open for me because they knew i wanted to get into the district um and then a lady who had been there for about i think 27 years had two buildings which i now have decided she wanted to retire and it was perfect it was you know was probably even bigger than i than i thought i needed but now i’m already outgrowing those two spots so amazing it was a blessing almost on the corner there great visibility from the red light you know and you can’t miss it when you come in the district so it is a great location yeah uh and it’s a just absolutely beautiful building got the you know the white painted brick and and all the things you would expect with with your genre of furniture that you sell so it really fits and y’all done a great job with that now the name blue door market okay so that’s the other struggle that i i went through was what i want to name it because you know once you name it you name it it’s right you know you certainly could rename it but you’re rebranding everything then so where did blue door market come from stephanie bertholot and the crew at sr enterprise can handle it all from sheetrock to texture to paint give stephanie a call at 504-432-9284 sr enterprise where they spread the paint and you spread the word

tell me that yeah well so we wanted something that was catchy obviously you know we wanted something that was simple and easy to remember though and everything we you know we went through hundreds of names and a lot of them were catchy and sounding good but they weren’t simple you know um they weren’t memorable so um we ran across a shop uh driving called uh the red barn door or something like that you know and it kind of the color in there it made it memorable to me you know i thought well that’s so simple and it’s memorable you know so you know when we were opening at the time and still now a lot of people were doing the blue doors on their houses it was kind of what was in i was thinking about incorporating that and i actually originally came up with blue door mercantile yeah i like the word merchandise i do too it’s a nostalgic it is you know it makes me think of the old times but uh my wife didn’t like it you know a lot of people i don’t know what mercantile means so i said well you know i want it to be simple so we went with blue door market and um you know i i wasn’t in love with it right away yeah but every time i told somebody the name they’re like yeah i love that you know it’s simple and it’s easy to remember to be an easy logo to make so we stuck on that and it has worked you know people just a lot of people just say blue door you know yeah i’m going to blue door you know and stuff like that so it’s easy to remember yeah yeah it really is and it and it you know some names just kind of fit it just kind of fits right you know that and you’re right it’s it’s a simplicity to it but it it tells a little story of what you do there to me i picture you know those old nostalgic blue doors right yeah and and all those things so kudos on on choosing that name that was great obviously uh so you opened blue door market and you hit the ground running you were doing pretty good uh especially with your social media which i do want to mention i looked today over 12 000 fans this guy has that’s pretty impressive uh you know it is no easy task to get people’s funny you can have 500 followers on facebook and you tell them follow me on my page and and a hundred of them do it right and it’s like what do y’all love me anymore what’s up with that but you got 12 000 people that uh think enough of your business to follow the page that’s pretty awesome uh and it’s huge of course social media is always important especially to small business it helps small business compete with large business in my opinion it’s a cheaper way to advertise than than some you know ways that you might think of but i think it’s vital for your industry especially antique shops furniture shops places like that uh after coping 19 showed up you know where would you have been without social media yeah i mean social media has built my business i owe everything to social media most of my products are visual you know period they’re unique and you know in today’s times people like to sit on their couch and shop you know and so how do i compete with the big guys well i have to get them to see my unique products and so you know daily and just try to keep people engaged and you know somebody may follow me for three or four months before they ever actually come into the store but something will catch their eye eventually that’s unique they haven’t seen and they’ll come in a seed and then they’ll realize how many more unique products we have so yeah social media is uh you know it it takes a lot of time and a lot of effort and it’s a little stressful at times you know but um it’s i owe everything to it you know i mean it it’s huge it’s uh you know and it i’m a big believer in innovating your business and kind of you know kevin 19 hit jeremy and it was like uh whether you were in your business or whether you were in a restaurant or you were a hairdresser you name it it was like what are the rules what can we do and yeah kind of two choices there you can bury your head in the sand and just say the world’s gone nuts and uh you know i’m out of business or whatever or you could innovate you innovated you know you probably i’m sure ramped your social media up and said this is how we’re gonna have to show furniture for a little while and uh so tell me some of the steps kind of that you all took during that time well interesting um we uh we were moving from the old location to the new location in march yeah which is about when the shutdown yeah so actually i was already going to be closed for a couple weeks yeah so it kind of worked out a little bit timing-wise yeah it could have happened at a better time right right he gave me a little extra time to get the shop you know because i was rushing so get the shop ready and um so once we got the shop ready we and they had the shutdown going on we were doing curbside sales i was actually doing free local delivery just trying to keep the business going so anybody that purchased anything 20 or more i was hopping in the van and taking it to them you know as long as they lived in lewiston parish yeah and so that kind of kept kept scoring that and the curbside pickup and everything and then um and we used social media you know to reach out and show people what we had and and so um we have since we’ve been at the location cove has been around so i don’t know what it’s like to be open at the new location without covid so yeah a lot of people saying got to be better well yeah i mean a lot of people say how has it affected you i don’t know because i don’t know what it was like before you know probably the biggest negative is uh in the district you know the spring fest and the fall fest are really big huge you know huge forest and then you know they have the ladies night out the girls night out and the wine tasting and all those events haven’t happened since i’ve been there so you’ve missed those you know those are a benefit to all the shops in the district so i miss those and i’ll be glad when those come back but other than that like i said we don’t know any difference you know yeah and something i’m curious about so you have other these other shops in the district and are you all all friends or y’all are rivals how does that work yeah uh actually most of the shops are friends you know i don’t know everybody uh personally but most of the people we do know and you know we’ll share share ideas and we do work together a lot of times you know um a lot of the shops are part of the merchants association which is a group that’s basically to benefit all the merchants in the district you know doing um different promotions and working on these festivals and stuff and um yeah a lot of the guys work together i’m very fortunate to have a lot of shops that kind of helped me you know uh when i got started and then all my neighbors are really good to me you know we help each other out and we work together so very good i don’t you know if if if somebody’s a rival in the district to me i don’t know about it yeah you know to be honest with you because um we stay so busy down there we just you know we just mind our business and go to work every day but yeah if we can help anybody out we’d be glad to do that and everybody seems to get along pretty good so well and yeah y’all have a you’re unique in that district and that your furniture is you know majority of its new furniture it’s it’s uh and it’s rustic in in its character right and uh where a lot of people in the district they might have antiques that are 100 years old i mean it’s just a totally different type of furniture um so that’s something that’s unique that you can get at blue door that you may not can get anywhere else in the district is that brand new just beautiful you know buffet

of close to home there and that you may be looking for and they’re unique they’re some of that stuff i’ve never seen anywhere else only at blue door markets so that’s one of our main goals is to try to be unique you know people can find a core all over the place absolutely we try to we try to have unique stuff and what a lot of people don’t know about a a lot of our decor is a lot of is locally made i have a lot of local people that make decor sell it to me that i turn around you know and you know just play for the customers so we have a lot of locally made stuff that’s interesting i’m trying more and more to bring in more of it you know so anytime somebody walks in the door and says hey look i make cutting boards or you know i make you know what whatever you know uh wood signs porch signs i always listen and if you know if they have a fair price i try to work with them you know because uh i’m a local business you know absolutely i think that’s what makes us unique is you

supporting us and we’re local and we’re all we’re all trying to help each other and and uh in that sense but i did not know that you had some stuff there that from locals so that’s that’s good to know uh so feel good when you walk in blue door you’re supporting your local business and in those local businesses that even jeremy does business with so you also have wooden swings those are cool yeah we’ve got uh i’ve got a guy an older fellow that builds me some nice pine porch swings stained and then with a nice coat of urethane over them to protect them from the elements with nice heavy-duty chains he builds rockers for me uh crawfish tables right now we have a good yeah a good selection of crawfish tables right now um gliders stuff like that so in and all solid wood stuff none of it nailed together all screwed together so very which which means it holds up a lot better in the elements absolutely and what i’m going to do uh is i’m gonna go on your facebook and i’m gonna get some pictures of the stuff we talk about and as we’re talking it’s really cool all this stuff i can do with editing now i’m gonna make those pictures pop up that’ll be awesome so when you say cross crawfish table it’s gonna pop up on there and so that way the people watching this uh they’ll be able to see right there firsthand what we’re talking about right that’s awesome that’s why i love doing

as well uh the cousin beatrice guy i actually know as well and uh yeah he’s a character yeah yeah that that he is a character and he got his start writing thibodeaux and boudreaux joke joke books is that how he got his startup that’s how he got his start and he would always put he would always put a few uh uh spice uh recipes in the back of his books and um once he sold enough of the books people weren’t buying anymore he started doing the dips there you go innovating yeah you know for him he’s uh that’s innovating your business now and speaking of your business your family in business right that’s right you have a lot of people in your family involved in in the kind of day-to-day operations of blue normal market yeah yeah i mean um i i’m the main person that operates it my wife you know she’s always working at her store but she helps me with ideas and stuff like that behind the scenes stuff but uh just about everybody that works there is related to me instead which is such a blessing for me you know because uh you know i’m doing a lot of behind the scenes stuff ordering and organizing and restocking and stuff and so i don’t work the counter as much as i probably would like to and um i got a few girls that worked for me uh you know nieces of mine and relatives of mine they do an amazing job and i’m very lucky probably the best thing about my business is my employees because uh you know it you get a couple bad experiences you start getting a bad reputation and it’s i know how important that is and so i’m very lucky let me tell you you you set a mouth full right there and most successful people that i sit down in this chair when i ask them about their business and one of their keys to their success they’ll say my employees yeah because it doesn’t matter how good you or i are if our employees are aggravating people or not giving them the service we would give them and and uh all those things you could lose a customer over it and most times people won’t mention it they just won’t come back right right and so yeah it is a blessing and and i’m glad to hear that your employees you know are so good at what i know every time i’ve been in there they’ve been more than polite awesome and all those sorts of things so yeah you know i got casey over here she’s behind the scenes but she helps me a lot and she’s well everybody can’t have good employees

no she does a great job she does a great job

uh so so moving on from that uh i will say that you know as we discussed earlier you kind of help fan the flame of my furniture addiction i’ve got a a major furniture addiction because i’ve you know i grew up in the paint business and and uh i’ve worked 25 years for the same paint company and and so i’ve been able to take furniture and do this whole chalk paint thing and all that and i’ve experimented with it and the process i kind of fell in love with it i had an idea that i was going to do that and then just sell it on facebook or something and i never sell any my wife’s like dude you got to get rid of some of this furniture i’m like this is so beautiful what are you crazy right but anyway uh you definitely helped me to fan that flame but what uh you know i love everything about that business from the aspect of my furniture addiction but also from the aspect that it’s family-owned right uh and that uh i’m supporting a family in business that’s important to me now one thing i asked you in pre-production was some advice you would recommend to another business owner maybe and uh i wanted to quote you because this is a good quote i really love this and basically what you said you said work hard never stop trying to better the customer’s experience and use social media daily to engage your customers i couldn’t agree more yeah that is uh you know your customers are while we’re there and uh no matter what you’re doing and the better experience they have the more likelihood they’re gonna come back and be loyal to you and and uh and everybody that’s going in there that i know of including myself it just raves over the experience they have going in that’s good to hear yeah yeah it’s it’s got a great reputation now on the end of that quote you said um use social media to engage with your customers also agree 100 um i would say this to business owners and i’m sure you’d agree if you’re not active on social media you need to get active that’s right um keep an active facebook or an active instagram or both and put a ton of stock into social media because i can guarantee you if you have an active uh non-active social media presence and you’re in business right now not a good thing right somebody else your competition is probably innovating and so uh so as you said earlier it’s been a huge part of your business absolutely so any uh what are y’alls plans for 2021 y’all just going to keep rocking and rolling with uh with with you know just got an 18-wheeler furniture and uh yeah where i’d be going to once this podcast airs that’s gonna be gone so

charles darwin who knew charles darwin invented the office chair he added wheels to the chair to actually get around his study quicker so uh he thought of it before anybody else and he wrote a weird book on apes so why do kings sit on thrones if anybody’s ever wondered that in early history chairs or thrones were generally used by people of higher society people with less rank in life i guess sat
