  • Very interesting shop. A mix of Voodoo and Witchcraft. A very magical New Orleans feel about it. Definitely not a “made in China” shop! Most everything is handmade. Voodoo Dolls, oil blends, mojo bags...  more »
  • If you're not a native of New Orleans one needs to have an open mind and take the time to read and ask questions while in the store. The stories behind this stuff are interesting and if you have time ...  more »
  • Small yet intetesting place that everyone visiting Nola needs to go to. Really interesting and cool place  more »

  • I came here several years ago and the only courteous employee/person was the Tarot reader, Raina. I came by recently with my service dog and husband. The cashier said "NO DOGS" I told him she was a service dog. Less than 30 seconds later, the security guy tells us we have to leave bc my service dog is out of control, jumping on people. I asked who she jumped on and he pointed to a guy that literally just walked in the door. He's telling me this as my SERVICE DOG is calmly standing at a heel. The funny thing was my husband was 5ft behind me and only saw her lift her head really fast to sniff at something a foot away. Come to find out that the owners hate dogs and even try to discourage customers with service dogs. The only negative service dog/business experience I've had in my whole stay in NOLA. I used to tell people to visit the shop. Now I will encourage them to patron establishments that don't discriminate against disabilities.
  • Cool shop with the best prices (compared to the other voodoo shops in the area). A good collection of neat things and lots to look at. Definitely have to stop in here while you are in New Orleans.
  • Great little spot on Bourbon! Lots of neat trinkets, tarot, craft and jewelry + so much more. Be prepared to spend at least a half hour taking this little spot all in!
  • Staff: The guy in the back of the store where the books are is one of the rudest people I have EVER met. I have traveled the world, been to countries that don't speak English and the man at this store is still worse than any other place. He sat in the bookstore portion of the store with sunglasses on and had the worst attitude. When me and my girlfriend asked him about voodoo and it's beliefs the staff member went on a 60 tirade about how he has "channeled spirits all day but because this store is on Bourbon St. people think we're fake". Please keep in mind that no one doubted the legitimacy of the staff member or store. As tourists in a city we've never been to before I believe we are allowed to ask questions about something we are not familiar with. Needless to say, we left promptly, that store would not get any of my money or time. The other staff members were friendly and we saw them having conversations with other patrons. Store: The was store was great. Lots of unique items. We definitely planned to buy some items as gifts for friends back home but the staff member killed any chance of that happening. How to be better: Train you staff to remember that most people are unfamiliar with the subject of voodoo and will likely have questions of its practices and origins. The key here is this, communication and customer education will go a long way. Your place is great but how many customers has this turned away? I understand that people have bad days but there seems to be a pattern here of bad customer service from this one particular staff member.
  • It had a great selection and the shop was decorated really well with altars. But the service was poor and the cashier was rude. I paid with cash and card and she made a big deal about it and slammed her pen and sighed really loud.

Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.
