Revelry Boutique Gallery
Revelry is such a cool spot for a number of reasons. The owner, Mo Howe, is one of the nicest folks you’ll ever meet and she is so connected and interested in this amazing city. Her passion for art and life bleeds through into everything she does, and the items in her shop are all from local craftspeople and artisans.
Browse through a selection of furniture, crafts, home decor, wall art, jewelry and apparel in their shop in NuLu, on Market St. Afterward, you can go next door to Royals Hot Chicken for a bite to eat. I hear that Ozzy Osbourne was there a few weeks ago.

It’s located right inside Butchertown Market and is a place that will give you a huge selection of clothes, home decorating pieces, fun mugs and drinkware, jewelry and so much more.
