New Orleans - top shopping city - Travel & Leisure

See link for source

"The shopping category was divided into subcategories of luxury stores, independent boutiques, antiques markets, flea markets and interior design stores and the results subsequently combined for an overall score."

"Though New York took the number one spot in the luxury store sub-division followed by Chicago and Los Angeles, it failed to perform when it came to the other types of retail locale."

This comment on the article captures what makes the New Orleans experience special:

New Orleans has had a real burst of entrepreneurship spirit and corporate development since Katrina. I just moved back after 8 years out of the area, and it is astonishing. The music scene bleeds into the art scene, and that bleeds into a great fashion and crafstman industry. If you've never been to New Orleans, you need to see what people are talking about. The food is delish, yes, but the shopping really is killer. There is upscale, for those who have the need for that kind of status symbol. Quite frankly, I'd rather have an original bag designed by a local artist or a stunning piece of jewelry crafted by a jewelry-smith who has original ideas with whimsical themes and doesn't take themselves too seriously. I guess that's the issue with the New Yorkers who are flabbergasted by this survey, they take themselves too damn seriously. Cheers, y'all!
