The Garden District Book Shop resides inside the historic property called the Rink at the corner of Washington Ave and Prytania St in New Orleans' beautiful Garden District. We carry a large collection of regional titles: new and used; design, art and gardening books; fiction and non-fiction; children's; and signed first editions and limited editions by many regionally and nationally acclaimed authors.
