Of all the used and antiquarian bookshops in NOLA, I liked this one best for book-hunting; thought it had more books in good, clean condition than some of the others, and offered said books at very reasonable and fair prices. I felt very comfortable browsing...More

Everything a quirky little bookshop should be. Eclectic and interesting selection with a proprietor that could have been straight out of central casting. Put down your kindle, get some ink on your fingers and support this local business and your brain. Plus you'll get hit...More

I love this bookstore. It would be easy to spend an entire afternoon here among the shelves of used hardbacks, as well as a New Orleans-centric collection of new books. I found something I had been looking for. The lady at the counter was friendly....More

This is a small store- well smallish. A very nice person was working there and a sweet cat, always a plus for a bookstore. New Orleans does not seem to embrace books - it least not in the tourist areas- so if you need a...More

I love books, so I always seek out used bookstores when I travel. The variety at this bookstore was good & I bought a couple of books (of course). The shopkeeper was very helpful. I would definitely come back to this bookstore the next time...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
