With a history spanning over three hundred years, it comes as no surprise to learn that New Orleans houses one of the leading antique markets in the United States.
Scattered throughout the Port City’s thoroughfares are the relics collected by millions of buyers and traders, who, over time, have managed to gather items belonging to French explorers, English merchants, Spanish pirates, and Southern planters, as well as museum-quality relics like Civil War weapons, original art deco statues, and American and European antiques. Put on your treasure-hunting hat and set out on a quest to discover the things that keep the Big Easy’s culture alive.
Known as the “interior designer’s marketplace of New Orleans,” the Shops at 2011 Magazine are a kind of indoor bazaar, with an eclectic mix of new and old pieces. Winding through bright rooms and hallways, you’re sure to find an antiquated object of passionate New Orleans desire. The marketplace also features collections of local art, jewelry, custom home furnishings, gifts, and more, curated by over 20 area vendors and artists.
