MG234 Blue Plate
Blue Plate is a funky new glitter that has a linear holographic stripe on it. Its a larger cut glitter at .25 hex. It gives the appearance of tinsel without the tinsel. v
Once upon a time, in a little Gretna warehouse, Blue Plate Foods Inc., a subsidiary of the giant Wesson-Snowdrift Oil Co., started turning out mayonnaise -- or mynez, to use the local pronunciation -- bearing the Blue Plate name in 1929. In November 1943, Blue Plate moved into a sleek, white concrete mayonnaise factory with rounded glass-brick corners in Mid-City, at 1315 S. Jefferson Davis Parkway. The building became a local landmark.
NOW: Mayonnaise hadn't been made in the factory since 2000. After 2005's Hurricane Katrina, the building was rehabilitated at a cost of $25 million by HRI Properties and JCH Development and converted into 72 mixed-income loft apartments with a leasing preference for artists. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
