A melting pot of culture, art, and creole, there are few things I hold more dearly than my “hometown” of New Orleans. Last month, I went back to my Southern roots with a trip home to the Northshore of New Orleans. My cup was overflowing with all the charming design, architecture, art, food, and French 75s! NOLA is filled with such rich history and some of the best unassuming destinations to shop until you drop.
Today, I am sharing my list of the haunts I visit every time I’m home. Plus, my tips for shopping, and the strategy I always use to uncover treasures every time you hunt.
Genevieve’s top tips to uncovering treasures:
Not all the good finds are in the “shotgun” shops along the notable Magazine Street, peek through alleys and courtyards for tucked away treasure chests.
TAKE YOUR TIME:
Magazine Street is a full 6 miles long so make a plan for more than one day of meandering, not only to look at shop goods but also the building beauties gracing the street.
