I’m Mary, the sales coordinator at Rau Antiques. I wanted to take 10 minutes out of Bill Rau’s busy schedule (my boss and owner of the gallery)  to get to know him  a little better and for some reason, he agreed. So to see a third generation Rau in a different light, here is our 10 question Q and A session.

Almost 25 years.

2. Favorite New Orleans Cuisine:

Chargrilled oysters from Acme Oyster house.

3. Best business advice you’ve ever gotten?

Buy the best and only cry once.

4. Favorite word:

I don’t know, but probably an adjective.

Get a massage.

6. What do you attribute the Saints Success to this season?

Divine Will.

7. Biggest Pet Peeve?

When my computer fails…

If I did, I wouldn’t share them with you and the world.

The team I work with.

10. Favorite piece in the gallery right now?

The Godward Painting. It’s the best painting by one of the best artists. I’d bring it home if I could.
