It’s no wonder that New Orleans offers countless treasures for the antique afficionado. The city drips with history, the kind of past hidden in secret courtyards and whispered down cobblestoned lanes. Antiquarians sell their stock up and down Royal and Chartres streets in the French Quarter and on Magazine from the Lower Garden District to Uptown.
On offer will be gorgeous 19th century English and French furniture, silver services, rare stamps and estate jewelry. Untraditional and exotic pieces such as Absinthe spoons, skeleton keys, antique glass Mardi Gras beads and rings with secret compartments for voodoo charms may also be uncovered. The past is present and on sale in New Orleans. Here is a list of where you can find some.
