Shopping on Saturday: Magazine Street

I spent the better part of last Saturday touring the amazing shops on Magazine Street. I can unequivocally state that Magazine Street is all that I hoped it would be, and one day is NOT enough time! This wonderful “emporium of shops” is 6 miles long. There is so much to see and so little time. Michael, our tour guide and partner in crime, managed to pack a punch in just a few hours.

After our whirlwind tour of Magazine Street, Michael and Quinn hosted a cocktail party that evening in our honor to meet the many shop owners, artists and designers that call New Orleans home. I've included a few of the stops we managed last Saturday, suffice it to say I will need to plan another trip very soon.

Ann Koerner's shop, hands down, is one of my favorites. In part it has much to do with Anne. Not only does she select a beautiful mix of French, American, Italian, Swedish, regional and decorative objects and antiques, she is a lovely person.

Mac Maison LTD has amassed one of the most amazing collections of chandeliers imaginable. Specializing in 18th and 19th century antiques, chandeliers, sconces, mantles, gates and other architectural artifacts and ornamentations, Mac Maison LTD is a visual treat for the eyes.

I was delighted to visit Hal Williamson's shop. Hal has been a favorite of mine for many years. His stunning store features beautifully selected French and Continental antiques and fine quality reproductions. Hal recently collaborated on the Low Country Luxe "New Orleans" Scented Candle that is carried in his shop - it is a MUST have!

A must do - We have yet to visit New Orleans since our move to Texas. Something I should not admit. I shall put it off no longer. Thanks for the intro to Magazine St.

Ronda--Your pretty pictures inspired me to take my Monday to stroll around Magazine Street today. I work here but often don't take the time to take advantage of all Magazine Street has to offer! I'll let you know if I stumble onto anything that I positively can't live without!
