French Quarter Business Association hosts a Special Holiday Shopping Day - Saturday, November 17th

French Market & Jackson Square Shops will be offering holiday treats and a variety of discounts.

M.S. Rau Antiques on Royal Street will have just premiered a specially curated exhibit of significant Impressionist paintings. This remarkable collection includes paintings spanning the pre-Impressionist and Impressionist movements with works by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Vincent van Gogh and Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, works owned by M.S. Rau as well as works on loan.

The Exchange Shop on the Hermann-Grima House property is a consignment shop selling the work of local female artists. Special for November 17th the first floor of the Hermann-Grima House will be open for visitors, as well as have artists in the courtyard to meet and greet.

The Shops at Canal Place is an excellent place to park and start your French Quarter day. A pedi-cab pick up and drop off spot will be at the Iberville Street entrance. There will be live music in the atrium throughout the day.
