The great Louisiana purchase on Magazine Street

Magazine Street again. Treasure galore. How about a pair of medieval looking shields. One can never have too much protection these days. And they do bring a sense of stability and permanance to any room. A sense of history and chivalry. Perfect accent pieces if you ask me.

Magazine Street in New Orleans is about a 3.5 mile stretch of shopping opportunities. I am counting the section from about Nashville Avenue to abut in the Felicity Street area. It continues further on downtown, but that has a different character. And it continues on the other end through Audubon Park, but that, too is a different, though scenic part of the street.

Magazine Street takes you back a few years to the time of one-car families, pedestrians, family-owned shops, and family restaurants. It's fun to just park, walk, browse and shop the boutiques, antique shops, galleries and all.

Looks like fascinating "window shopping."

Neat! I think they might be a necessary addition to a shared bedroom in our house...

This is an interesting post, Steve. Nice reading too.

I am doing something different on my Gordon, Ohio blog. I set out to photograph and describe every house in the village where I was born.

It sounds like my kind of place. Small town type businesses and lots of great window shopping.
