Shopping in New Orleans is a highly evolved leisure activity, with a shop for every strategy and a fix for every shopaholic—at every budget. Think of the endless souvenir shops on Bourbon Street and swanky antiques stores on Royal Street as the bookends for all the shopping New Orleans has to offer. There’s a high-end mall, quaint boutiques filled with strange items gathered from all parts of the globe, a brand spanking new outlet mall, and shops featuring enticing hand-crafted objects produced by local, somewhat twisted, folk artists.
There are sweet deals to be had, or lavish riches to be spent, artworks to be admired, new outfits to wear home. But as all shoppers know, the fun is in the hunt. And New Orleans has some smashing hunting grounds.
