some things never change.... the Kite Shop on Jackson Square is one of them. I used to visit this place every weekend when I was a kid. As you'd expect, a great deal of kites, but they also have beautiful wind socks, and little toys that make great gifts for kids.
I still visit the kite shop after I get my Tarot read on Jackson Square or eat a Muriel's at St. Ann and Charters on the next corner.
Pros: colorful wind socks, lots of kites, knick knacks
