“serious voodoo people, great Haitian art, not overpriced”
Review of Voodoo Authentica

Voodoo Authentica
Ranked #76 of 383 things to do in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 26, 2013

........But not that friendly a store to look around in.

They're into their thing, and not interested in interacting much. I tried to buy something from them, but they were to inscrutable to deal with and I finally gave up.

Lovely stuff to pop in and look at tho.

I've been going to New Orleans for years, and the nice people at Voodoo Authentica are a true pleasure to work with. This is NOT your usual "tourist trap" in the French Quarter. These folks go out of there way to explain and educate all that pass through their doors. You'll find that there is a lot more to this religion than what you've seen on TV and in movies. If you happen to be in town around Halloween, join them for their annual celebration - Voodoofest. You can mingle with true practitioners and even participate in a ceremony. It's a full day of fun, with seminars and demonstrations into the night. These are good people that have a genuine passion for what they do. It's worth the visit.
