Plum, New Orleans, Louisiana

5430 Magazine Street
New Orleans , Louisiana
Tel: 504 897 3388's insider take:

The city's initial recovery phase has been good to the Uptown stretch of Magazine Street, a former workaday commercial strip turned boutique row. This relative newcomer showcases a selection of funky housewares, messenger bags, jewelry, and work by local artists. Hand-painted "Saints for Sinners" charms provide colorful protection and support from an updated selection of Catholic saints. (Who knew that St. Isidore was the patron saint of Web surfers?) Facsimiles of New Orleans's familiar water-meter covers—an artsy moon-and-stars pattern—make a subtle statement as diminutive earrings.

Open Mondays through Thursdays 10 am to 6 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 10 am to 5 pm.
