Visiting the French Quarter usually means a stop in here.

Interesting collection of charms, voodoo dolls, jewelry, books, and altar displays. I buy something from here every time we are in town.

I came to New Orleans to celebrate my 40th bday. Casually went shopping the French Quarter district and popped in here. Spoke with Raven about some spirit concerns and worries our daughter is experiencing back home. He not only helped us but went over and beyond to complete strangers. Literally the best experience of my trip. Thank you so much... More

Love the positive vibe in this shop despite it being very touristy. Affordable array of talismans and unique elements to bring about positive changes in your life. Kind and helpful staff. I forgot that voodoo was closely related to Catholicism -- Marie was actually Catholic. And that voodoo here is very similar to following and believing in saints. It is... More

Tons of typical voodoo stuff jam packed into a tiny space. So cluttered it was hard to focus on one thing. There were 2 staff people there, who didn't greet us when we came in and never asked if we needed help. They talked to each other the whole time. I was just curious to see what a voodoo shop...

Went into store 3 times on 3 different days. Was looking to get a reading done and find out more about voodoo dolls. No one on the staff made me feel like they wanted me in the store. Left with no merchandise or readings cause of it.

There were all the things you would expect in a tourist voodoo shop. The staff was nice to me, I enjoyed looking around.

So sure, if you're in New Orleans, you have to visit a Voodoo shop, right? Also, hey, you're in New Orleans and you've been singing "Witch Queen of New Orleans" by Redbone to yourself the whole time so OF COURSE you have to go to Marie Laveau's. I didn't quite know what to expect when I got there, so I... More

Purchased a doll here. Found excellent customer service and had all of our questions answered. We did not feel that we were being patronized even though we were obviously new to purchasing voodoo articles. Found the shop to be great to walk around and filled with too many things to look at the all.

Thank Dean K

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
