Winner of 2004 “Best of City” award by National Geographic Traveler.
The British travel guide, Time Out: New Orleans, says this about the Botanica:
The proprietress here, Sallie Ann Glassman, is New Orleans’ most visible high priestess of Vodou. Sallie’s intelligence and logic shine out from under her soothing demeanour, engaging manner and ceaseless public advocacy for peace. Her tarot readings are highly personal. The shop carries a small but thorough amount of spiritual supplies, plus a good selection of books, including works by Sallie herself. She’ll make a believer out of you.
If you are visiting the city, a visit to the Botanica will educate and enlighten you in the rich blend of cultures and spiritual traditions that is New Orleans. The Botanica is a favorite of locals who rely on it for religious supplies.
The shop is located at 2372 St Claude Avenue Suite 100, New Orleans in the Marigny neighborhood about 2.5 miles from the French Quarter. Telephone 504-948-9961. Open Monday to Saturday, 10am–5:00pm and Sundays 11am- 6:00pm.
