Magazine Street is hands-down the best street for shopping in the city. The walkable street stretches about 6 miles from Canal at the edge of the French Quarter all the way Uptown to Audubon Park and Zoo with oak trees, houses and character the whole way. Shop artists and galleries of all types like New Orleans Glassworks, Alex Beard Studio, Esom Art, Zele and Carol Robinson Gallery. Find locally-made home goods, quirky gifts, and t-shirts at shops like Home Malone, Fleurty Girl, and Dirty Coast. For vintage and vintage-inspired clothing, shop Trashy Diva or Miss Claudia's, and check out Funky Monkey for costumes. You’ll find a unique reminder of New Orleans at Mignon Faget — her jewelry that reflects the art, architecture, wildlife and style of the city. You can find everything you might need on Magazine Street, plus plenty of restaurants and bars along the way.
