No Photos: They Mean It Sep 30, 2016
You can't go to New Orleans without checking out a voodoo shop, and this "famous" one is worth a visit. I've gotta hand it to these folks: they sure as hell know how to market themselves! There's all kinds of fake voodoo junk crammed inside, from creepy looking voodoo dolls to love potions to bath salts to touristy t-shirts. It's not only an overpriced shop but it's also a cool voodoo "museum" with random altars and old, dusty stuff on display.

There's a hokey "spiritual reader" service in the back of the store if you're into that sort of thing (um, can you tell I'm a true skeptic)? Look, if burning an $18 bundle of incense would make you rich, don't you think everybody in the world would be buying into this junk?

There's a great selection of occult books and groovy candles for just about every ailment or problem one could experience. The employees here look the part too, with crazy dreadlocks, piercings and loads of tattoos. And for the love of voodoo, don't try to take a picture. You'll get straight up yelled at and that's no fun. This is a great place to pick up some unique New Orleans souvenirs. While you're at it, pass me that House Blend Money Oil!
