Photo(s) of the Day – Treasure Hunting in The Big Easy

New Orleans is one of the oldest cities in the United States with antique and collectible stores on almost every block of the French Quarter.  When we weren’t seeking out new adventures in eating we were exploring these stores for souvenirs   Greg’s Antiques provided us with over an hour of entertainment, digging deep into the piles of wrought iron and salvage.  We left with 2 eight foot wrought iron corner posts and 3 decorative corners.

  Collectible Antiques was a very small shop with only a small path down each side.  “Collectables” were stacked from the floor to the ceiling and tucked in every corner. Mel would have loved this store, I found it to be overwhelming.   Karl was unaffected by the clutter and came out with a lovely green spooner.  With a little bit of ingenuity and a lot of rope we managed to load our souvenirs and get them back to Texas.  Our souvenirs will never wear out, fade, or be tucked into a closet and forgotten.  They will last for generations.

  1. I love antique shops, especially the ones with stuff stacked to the ceiling. The spooner would have been something I would have wanted.
