Shop Tour: Agora Galleries in New Orleans

I couldn't help but share just one more set of pictures from my afternoon on Magazine Street in New Orleans last week.  We had hoped to make our way to the shop where Valorie Hart works, but I couldn't remember the name and it started to rain.

Here are some pictures from Agora Galleries, which is set up like an antique mall in that there are different areas curated by different people.  The selection is a mix of old and now, though.  There was a biedermeier chest steps away from an acyrlic coffee table.  Old lanterns hanging near new chandeliers.  There was eye candy around every corner.


Oh, how I want a pillow in that David Hicks pattern!  







All I could think of was Al Gore when I saw this.

At this point, my colleague gently pointed out that there was no way I could carry anything home and that I was torturing myself a little bit with the home stores.  So, we ducked into a charming sweet shop called Sucre and had lattes and macaroons.  Around this time, the rain drops started to fall, but we didn't really care.

  1. How come all those pics from the shop do not show up? i see the pics from when you went to the coffee shop but the other ones have a triangle with ! in the middle instead of the actual pic?

  3. One of the pastry chefs at Sucre is a former UVA student. She does an amazing job with the chocolates there.
