Go for: Curios, estate jewelry, artwork, and vintage finds.

The Crystal Menagerie has a little something for everyone. This eclectic shop has everything you never knew you needed. Gifts range from exquisite Tiffany lamps and antique furniture to estate jewelry and paintings to sculptures and costume jewelry. No two pieces are exactly alike.

There are also baubles that are more affordable too. Necklaces, rings with precious and semi-precious stones make you feel like dressing up and heading out on the town. Don’t forget your scarf, hat, gloves or shawl. It’s all here at Crystal Menagerie — shop as a visitor, return occasionally as a local, tell them you’ve got a special Mardi Gras ball to attend, and they’ll have just the piece to make your evening.

Local owners Yolanda and Carol travel throughout the US in search of the perfect pieces. Estate sales, auctions, jewelry shows…nothing is missed. If you tell them what you are looking for, and they do not have it, they will look for it during their next trip and give you a call when they return. They are great ladies! – and they’re part of what makes Crystal Menagerie such a special Nola Place.

Located one block off Royal Street, Crystal Menagerie is shop is a treasure in itself. Walking past this curio, you stop to take a second glance. Popping into the store, you lose yourself staring into one jewelry case only to look up and find a beautiful mermaid lamp casting a warm light over even more pieces.

So, come in for a visit and shop for your hard to please friends. You will probably end up with a few things for yourself too. – christine sory
