Reverend Zombie's House of Voodoo, New Orleans

Reverend Zombie's House of Voodoo, New Orleans

Virtually frozen in time since the early 19th century, the location of fabled Reverend Zombie's House of Voodoo is one of New Orleans' two shops (the other being Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo on Bourbon Street) recreating the authentic mysterious ambiance of the old stores in the French Quarter, where Voodoo practitioners once sourced mojo bags, herbs, and talismans. The admixture of tarot card readers, traditional African art, and Brazilian, Cuban and Haitian artifacts available here captures the Quarter's early ethnic and spiritual diversity. Inside the three-room space, filled floor-to-ceiling with merchandise and props, you will find multiple altars (hands off, please!) and whimsical hand-written signs describing the items, dropping witty notes to customers, and asking them to behave.

Found here is practically any book on the occult, plus tons of Voodoo items (dolls, masks, charms, spells, candles), and other awesome New Orleans relics and merchandise (taxidermy, statues, crystals, essential oils, tarot decks, t-shirts, and more) you can possibly look for, complete with instructions if you're unsure how to use them. And for those looking to astonish friends and family back home, there's an assortment of peculiar souvenirs that will do the trick.

Tip:
Among their most sought-after spell kits are "Other Attorney Be Stupid" and "Hex Your Ex". For movie buffs, keep an eye out for the prop-fence hanging from the ceiling, which made an appearance in "Interview With a Vampire". Just remember, no photography allowed – seriously, don't even try! Also, be sure to handle only what you're supposed to and respect the house rules; it'll make your visit to this place ONE OF THE COOLEST experiences you've ever had.
