La Mascarade d'Orleans
Part of the Post-Club 33-modernization updates to New Orleans Square include a re-envisioned Mascarade d'Orleans store. No longer selling pins, it has now been repurposed as a boutique selling a greater variety of wares, from soaps to trinkets to clothing to books. I find this to be an improvement over the singularly-focused previous iteration. The interior lavishments are also quite nice. The opulent chandeliers, warm wood shelving, and coffered ceilings create a cozy but inviting space. Though the merchandise seems more female-oriented than male, it's still a pleasant space to peruse.
