After Katrina, Lee was watching television and saw a house in the 9th ward with a cross leaning against the porch made of oyster shells. He duplicated it and called it a “Katrina Cross” selling them with profits going to the Katrina fund for fisherman. Then he moved on to other decorative items made of Louisiana oyster shells…like lamp bases, ring holders, Christmas decor, wreaths, yard crosses, etc. His oyster items can be found in Henderson, La. at The Marketplace at Hwy 115 and in Baton Rouge at Mosaic Gardens.
