Day two in New Orleans, we headed to Magazine Street for some more antiquing.
With the 81 degree temperature and dragging along my 26 year old daughter and her friend, we weren't feeling the love.
That's until we met Kevin Stone of Kevin Stone Antiques!
Not only does he have a fabulous store of amazing antiques, he knows New Orleans inside and out.
We found out where to go and what to do.
He talked us in to canceling our reservation at August, the only restaurant I was determined to go to, and eat at a tiny little Italian restaurant instead called The Italian Barrel.
"I would crawl across broken glass for their pumpkin raviolis!"
Kat couldn't change reservations fast enough on her iPhone!
While the girls and my friend Teresa picked Mr. Stone's brain, I shopped...
Way in the back, in the corner, these two Black Forest framed prints called my name!
Be still my heart!
Look at the detail on these frames!
While I was trying to decide which one, Teresa told me to buy them both.
Kevin Stone gave me a great price, so I did!
I couldn't give him my credit card fast enough!
(You can also find Kevin Stone on 1stdibs, here.)
Oh, and BTW, the pumpkin raviolis were amazing!
Thanks for sharing the beautiful picture.
Oh wow, what a great shop. Thanks for sharing. I saw several things that I would love. Hugs, Marty
Delores, a fabulous shop and what finds; these frames are so unusual and I am sure valuable! Hope you all had fun!

It is always best to get a locals insight. Some of our "hole in the walls" are the best restaurants and bars. I am happy you had so much fun in my great City. I am enjoying your thoughts.
Lots of treasures here! Gorgeous mirror at the top and the fabric on the chairs is beautiful.
Thanks for the tour Dolores!
Thanks for taking us with you on your girls trip!!! It has been a delight!
Oh I could definitely shop like I mean it in a store like that!!
Hi D!! I am so glad you got both. Those are amazing and I know they were just waiting for you to come to New Orleans and find them. Wow! They could not be more perfect for your home. They even have a sweet little dog on the frame, how perfect is that?
Great find and a wonderful trip, thanks for sharing,
Wow this is soooo my kind of store and your finds are EXQUISITE! I would have snatched those up too....just beautiful. Between the food and the antiques and beautiful stores...I think a trip the big easy is due!
Stunning interior inspires me a lot..
Plastic business cards
What a beautiful shop!! Loved seeing it!! Thanks for sharing!!
More, more, more!! Loving every detail...please sir, I'd like some more. This is such a wonderful city. We are looking into places for a short getaway 25th wedding anniversary (avoiding airports and long flights if possible.) Hmmm...another trip to New Orleans may be the way to go thanks to your inspiration. Or Nashville, or Charlston, good problems to have trying to decide.
There is nothing quite like getting the low down from the locals. Glad you had such a good time.
Let the good times roll; as they say in NOLA
Delores, now I'm eager to see where you use these. You have a great eye!
