Window Shopping in New Orleans

I found some of the windows of shops in the French Quarter very interesting. Below is a typical display of N.O. masks and beads, etc. Check out those giagantic beads, bottom right!
The dolls (below) very so beautiful, I didn't dare go inside, I'm sure the prices were outrageous!









(Below:) The Fleur de Lis symbol is everywhere on jewelry, candlesticks, etc.

The dress shop (below) was more a costume shop. The gowns were gorgeous! Nikki, I thought of you when I saw this shop!


The below photo was taken at the only grocery store we found in the French Quarter, it shows popular N.O. (or Louisiana) products. The white and gold box is a beignet mix. I bought a box for my daughter, Ashleigh. I don't know if they have tried it yet or not.


Below is the corner store which is an A&P. I didn't even know A&P still existed.

Hi Katherine,

Looks like you had a lovely trip to New Orleans. Being from the north, I've never been there yet, but hope to one day. Thanks for the scenic tour!
