Carnival is rolling in New Orleans, with parades almost every day through Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) on Feb. 20. While Mardi Gras is very much alive in New Orleans, the city is also home to artifacts and treasures from seasons past.
In the antique stores along Magazine Street in the Uptown neighborhood you can find items ranging from a float-rider's mask, ca. 1950, to an array of glass beads from the former Czechoslovakia, once thrown to the crowds in the festivities before Lent.
