I'm planning a visit to New Orleans in mid April... Any suggestions on places to shop?

The only shopping I know of down there is Trashy Diva (www.trashydiva.com) ...they have some great dresses!

I'd say the best area by far is Magazine street (uptown). There's so many amazing vintage stores, like Retro Active (BEST), Funky Munky, Buffalo Exchange,.. also many trendier stores, some designer boutiques like Mimi, ah-ha (found some jackets 75% off the other day), hemline,.. lots of coffee shops, antique stores and great food of all sorts (indian, japanese, vietnamese, middle eastern, italian).

Downtown, though, there's lots of stores down N. Peters (around Canal shopping area, which has Saks), like Fcuk, Urban Outfitters,.. then there are some malls like the Riverwalk, which has basic mall stores haha.

No, but I'm very interested in living there for awhile, have been looking into a charity or something to make it easier to get there, though I'm finding it hard to find any!
How come you moved there?

haute femme, are you still around?

I'm visiting New Orleans from Florida this weekend. We're staying in the French Quarter... can you recommend any cool places downtown? My boyfriend and I aren't afraid to walk, too. Some cool thrift stores would be neat... or cute boutiques.

Hi! I'm not really as familiar with shops downtown since I lived uptown, but I know there are lots of cute crazy boutiques.. Hemline is a dress shop with some good brands..if you go to Magazine street (it travels from uptown to downtown) you will definitely find some amazing thrift stores and shops.

Up and down Decatur street and around the french quarter there are lots of specialty shops like yarn, leather (haha, if you're interested in those), books, art galleries, and hole in the wall places. but downtown is known most for the food and the live music scene. There's also bigger stores like Urban Outfitters and French Connection right in that area, while on Canal street (borders the quarter), there's Saks. Royal street has lots of antique stores. If you end up on magazine though, you'll find many stores for sure.

wish I knew more about downtown though! there's many sites with store listings by area

I think I missed everything! I was on Magazine for a bit, but I didn't continue for some cool places... just hit the WWII Museum and then moved on to another street.

But I must say, New Orleans is amazing and I'm sure I missed so much. Thanks for the advice, though - next time, next time.
