It's a gallery with art and some cool trinkets. But the #1 thing to do in NOLA? I'm perplexed. I suppose if you're a fan of his art or happen to be strolling by, it's worth stopping in.

Very unique drawings perfect for New Orleans. Artist was there and was very friendly. Found a drawing from a po-boy fest we went to a couple of years ago. Love it!

I had read up on the Jamie Hayes gallery before my trip to NOLA. I sought it out on my very first day. The artwork is unique and whimsical. Most of the items stick to the same theme (think cats, frogs, dolls) and are more unique than most of the cheesy gift shops around the French Quarter. Prices are reasonable... More

New Orleans is already full of culture and art, this little gallery added something more, and the staff in here are very friendly. The woman serving us gave us tips on where to go and frenchman street.

While most stores in the French Quarter offer souvenirs made in China, this gallery is a real treat. The artist has whimsical paintings, prints, dolls (of varying size and design) and much more. The dolls are made from his design by local artisans. Don't miss it!

Friendly staff, good hours, amazing artistic skill in different media. His bright, fun designs reflect the changing nature of the city, its people, music and food. This is a must stop during my yearly visit. Voodoo dolls make great gifts, and his are the best.

Colors, textures, vision, feelings.... A stroll through this gallery gives you permission to surrender yourself into the flight-full fantasies of the heart. Here, complete absorption into whimsy with a mad hatters view of the world makes everyday things, like a fish or a tree, something from the daydreams of fairy children. Colors dance with structure and love as partners in... More

We go to New Orleans about every year, and this is one of our required stops! I absolutely adore the cat prints, and once I had them all, started getting the dog prints and Mardi Gras prints!! I even have members of my family that request these as gifts every Christmas....so if I buy 2 prints as gifts of course... More

Put this on my list immediately as a must do. Very nice shop with my personal prerequisite - gifts/art by local artist(s). However I am surprised my fellow travelers find it to be #1. I was a bit let down but it was clean, visually appealing and had some quality unique pieces to commemorate a wonderful experience in New Orleans.

I spent almost an hour talking with Jamie. We talked about literature, history, Nazi Germany, music, and film. He is sincere, talented, and genuine. If you are in New Orleans, you must stop by his gallery. We took a picture together, and as a parting gift, he gave me a copy of 'A Confederacy of Dunces,' his own personal belonging... More
