At first I thought that it could be a seasonal store, only open around the holidays but the doors were open with Santa standing inside, near the entrance.
I couldn’t imagine what this store had to do with New Orleans and why it was opened in this particular area but we had to go in for a look.
Kim, Lucas and I do not celebrate Christmas so this was probably the first time any of us had taken pictures with Saint Nick.
We then moved on and checked out the store to see what they had for sale.
The store was a change of pace and definitely interesting to check out while walking around.
I was surprised to see some people actually shopping at Santa’s Quarters and was curious to find out how business was on a daily basis with Christmas being over 6 months away.
The cashier (Santa’s helper) told me that the store did very well throughout the year and has been in business for over 30 years.
If you plan to visit New Orleans and want to check out something a little different then I’d recommend stopping by Santa’s Quarters!
