|Magazine Street in New Orleans|
While in New Orleans,we took the cable car to the Garden District and walked to Magazine Street to check out the shops. This is the premier shopping street in the area - link.
|Sidewalk near magazine street - beautiful trees!|
Magazine Street was named for a “magazin,” a warehouse that was built in the late 1700s to house products awaiting export. Today this vibrant street features eclectic architecture—from the large columned Greek Revival style of the mid-19th century to the colorful Victorian cottages trimmed in quirky gingerbread millwork
Typical homes in the area - many decked out for Mardi Gras.
Very pricey (but interesting) shop!
My goal was to find (and perhaps purchase) some great, well-priced "refurnishable" upholstered furniture to take home. We covered many blocks of great shops although most were either slightly overpriced for me (or a LOT overpriced).
Here are some images of the area and the shops!
We had a great time visiting Magazine Street and came back with the car two days later to pick up our treasure!
