Lydia and Lynette Faucheaux knew their duty to their families. They also knew an opportunity to look their flirtatious finest when they saw it.


Early every Friday, the two sisters would dress up in their corset finest gowns and head off to the early morning French market. They would buy produce and fresh bread for their family, keeping a careful eye out for any eligible young men that might be out running errands for their own family.
