“Antiques and shopping”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Fun place to spend a lazy afternoon. Take a walk down the sidewalk and see interesting antique shops, family owned places, restaurants, and get some exercise. Magazine Street has it all!

“Another Street”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We walked around much of the French Quarter and enjoyed the architecture and finally agreed that you will find pretty much the same thing where ever you go.

“Walking and Exploring Magazine Street”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

I had read online that Magazine Street had some great and well-priced antique stores but after exploring 3 different antique stores there I can say that these are not the kind of antique stores where one would find an old item for a very good price. Everything was extremely over-priced and a good many items wouldn't even qualify as antique. The neighborhood, while it looks like it is being renovated and folks are breathing new life into it which is wonderful, seems a little stereotypically "hipster" with 2 or 3 tattoo parlours and over priced clothing and furniture stores. While it was interesting, it was a bit disappointing. Other than that, it looked like there were some nice restaurants...

“Some cute shops”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We spent a couple hours walking along Magazine Street, shopping at some of the boutiques. Some cute and different items there and nice people tending the stores. We first went too far down Magazine, where the more expensive stores are located. Those aren't worth the trip unless you like shopping on Rodeo Drive. Save time and stay up near the Funky Monkey.

“Avoid Kevin Stone Antiques on Magazine”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I am often in New Orleans and am very familiar with most of the antique shops along Magazine Street. Strolling magazine is a wonderful way to spend a dayin New Orleans. I was unaware of Kevin Stone antiques, but saw a trumeau mirror that looked nice on 1stDibs and decided to take a chance and purchase it. Well, $5500 plus additional shipping later the mirror arrived. It was clearly NOT authentic 18th century (as was claimed) and had been altered very badly. I called Kevin Stone later and asked if I could possibly exchange the piece for a store credit. REMEMBER: I did not ask for my money back (even though the mirror was not what it was said to be). I very kindly asked if I could pick out another item. He VERY RUDELY said that he did not accept returns under any circumstance and would not exchange the piece. He barked "I am in the business to make money", then hung up on me. AVOID THESE RIP-OFF ARTISTS! There are many wonderful antique dealers along magazine, Kevin Stone and his nasty partner are not one of them.
