In New Orleans there is a term used for “something given as a bonus or special gift”.  We’re growing this part of the site and will be adding amazing items as we find them.  Whether you’re looking for one of a kind pottery, handmade jewelry, work by artisans of all types and, of course, books….lots of books.  The Permanent Tourist offers you beautiful items to enhance your world, broaden your horizons and gifts of all kinds for giving!  And if it’s a restaurant, click on the badge to make a reservation or find out if there is a wonderful cookbook there!
