If you're looking for an in-and-out or fall-in-love-with-the-first-thing-you-see shopping experience, do not go to Chartres Street! This area, the French Quarter, is known for its less expensive antiques, but that's not to say that everything you find there is rubbish. There is a good chance that you'll find something totally unique and perfect- you'll just have to spend some time looking for it. Chartres Street, as well as the nearby Royal Street, is home to some of the most fantastic shops in all of the United States.

If you're serious about collecting, you'll be able to spot museum-quality antiques, art, and furniture and bring it home with you for considerably less than you'd pay elsewhere. The Civil War store is a collection of historic artifacts from the Revolutionary War to World War II and the New Orleans Silversmith specializes in gorgeous silver jewelery as well as very nice table and serving pieces. Just make sure you bring your patience with you to Chartres Street.

New Orleans Shopping

Head to the French Quarter’s Chartre Street for artsy boutiques and very non-touristy goods.

Fragrance: Whenever I travel, I like to return with a scent from that place. New Orleans has fabulous fragrance shops that offer online purchasing and have been in operation for generations. Two include:

Hove Parfume


Bourbon French Parfums

And you can’t leave New Orleans without stocking up on your Aunt Sally’s pralines.
