Free of national chain stores, Oxford is littered with independent shops and creative spirit. Here's my short list of places I was fortunate to visit and would recommend to anyone passing through.
Defend New Orleans, located in NOLA's Lower Garden District on Magazine Street, has been dedicated to celebrating and preserving New Orleans' unique culture since 2003.
Our quirkiest stockist, I.J. Reilly's Knick Knacks and Curiosities, is located in a 19th century Elysian Fields building that was the address for the Kowalski's in Tennessee Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire." If you're looking to take home a piece of NOLA culture, this place is the real deal
Söpö is a 2-floor boutique located in the heart of MidCity New Orleans, right on the streetcar line. It’s a great place to shop for unique women’s apparel, housewares, and gifts for men, women & baby.
