About Us

Linda and Darrell have operated a small business in Texas for 25 years, buying and selling antiques, collectibles, crafts, books and patterns of all kinds. Linda's specialty is pottery and glass and she has been an ISA appraiser, writer, photographer and contributor to several books on pottery and glass.

Darrell is Cajun French from Louisiana, and he learned to "pass a good time" more than 60 years ago. He also likes to pass the rice, and discovered during a break from the military that Linda could cook. They've been lifelong partners for more than 40 years, cooking, eating, working and playing.

Linda likes art in everyday things, including landscaping design and fabric arts. Darrell's specialties are in woodworking, photography, and computers. He enjoys working with the business, but also works a full-time job in the computer industry.

Christopher and Katrina developed an early interest in the Cajun Collection business as they stepped over boxes, made price tags and washed glass and pottery as children. They learned antiques and collectibles and helped set up and take down shows. Although they live in Arkansas, they continue to help with the business when they can. Chris works remotely in maintaining the website, writing and editing eBooks. Katrina works full-time in the health industry and has two adopted children that take most of her time. She keeps an eye out for marbles and Eickholt art glass, and tries to keep everyone healthy.
