One of my favorite things to do on vacation is shop for trinkets and baubles.
(I am probably not alone in this.)
That way, back at home, whenever I see or wear said bauble (or sometimes they’re doohickeys), I’m reminded of my time on the trip.
Today I picked up a couple of cute pieces of jewelry from a chic shop called The Finery. It’s located in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans, just off Magazine Street, which is a popular shopping area with cafes and lots of antique and clothing stores.
Incidentally, it’s about two blocks from author Anne Rice’s former New Orleans home…
Back to The Finery, they carry jewelry by indie designers, both local and from other parts of the country. The style is sort of modern minimalist, and their pieces are pretty affordable, too.
I grabbed two things from a local designer named Neko — the Small Arc earrings ($24) and the Arc necklace ($32).
If you like what you see, The Finery is located at 1933 Sophie Wright Place in New Orleans. Say hi to Nicki, the owner, for me while you’re there. She’s really friendly and easy to talk to, and she’ll give you the 411 on everything the store carries and the indie designers. Also, lots more pics on her Instagram page.
