Locally owned and operated since 1999, we are a jewelry and gift boutique located in the heart of Uptown New Orleans. Look around our website or visit our shop and you’ll see why our loyal customers say we’re the best kept secret on Magazine Street.
We call it Luxe for Less. Everyone loves the finer things in life – but who says posh items need to break the bank? Our designer inspired looks will keep them guessing. We are your go to place for gifts, or perhaps a pick me up for yourself. We’ll help you pick out the perfect present, wrap it up and send you on your way. They’ll never know you stopped by at the last minute. It happens all the time, because our customers know they can always find something for everyone on their list. What happens at Miss Smarty Pants stays at Miss Smarty Pants!
Meet Team MSP
We are Louisiana girls.
We love what we do, adore our customers and love hearing stories of how much people enjoy their gifts from MSP.
We want you to feel great about the gift you’ve chosen. As well as the pick me up you couldn't resist getting for yourself. Believe us, it happens more often than you imagine. You deserved it! As we like to say, “To you, from you!”
Join us every Saturday for “Sipping on Saturdays”! Enjoy complimentary wine while you shop. What’s not to love about sipping and shopping?
Looking for that perfect accessory to go with the new dress you just bought? No problem. Show us a photo and we’ll help you pick out the perfect piece to complete the look.
Our Shop Dog
Team MSP would definitely not be complete without Lucky Girl, our shop dog and official greeter! She shamelessly welcomes any and all belly rubs. She loves our regulars and newcomers alike. She’s all too happy to hang out with the fellas in the boyfriend chair, while the ladies shop. She has regular two legged and four legged friends who stop in to pay her a visit. And, she made the papers! Check out this link - She was Gambit’s January 2014 featured “Shop Dog”!
I always make a trip to this adorable little boutique when I’m in town. They carry this brand of “Orleans” candles which are beautifully scented. I have them all over my apartment in San Francisco. I’ve also purchased some wall art here: a chandelier print on a metal base (totally funky and vintage) and an imitation Van Cleef & Arpels necklace.
Miss Smarty Pants is my favorite destination for unique, feminine New Orleans gifts. I can’t get enough of this place and there is most certainly always a MSP shopping bag in my suitcase when I return home.
It’s December 23 and if you’re anything like me, you probably have a bunch of gifts left that need to be bought STAT! Maybe you even have a mulled wine hangover and can’t bear the idea of shopping all day around town. Maybe even the idea of taking a stroll down Magazine St. is too intimidating for you. I’m here to say… get off your tuchus and DO IT! I’ll even make it easier for you… head straight to Miss Smarty Pants.
This will be your one-stop shop for any gal in your life (and even a guy or two). Think arty/bohemian-but still extremely classy- accessories and home accents. Think lovely framed pictures, chic ornaments and magnets, flashy jewelry and delish smelly candles. I’m kind of in love with this store and want to marry it. I mean, get married in it. Or at least visit it regularly and frolic about.
There ya go. Bonus points if you can hit up Plum across the street for even more quirky gifts and ornaments and Scriptura down the block for the wrappings… the people in your life will love your for it.
Celebrated my birthday by getting a big bag of goodies from Miss Smarty Pants! Love that my husband goes there when he wants to get me something really special. xo to you Miss Smarty Pants. Your store is divine!
This is the best store in New Orleans. I am still loving my gold chandelier!
My favorite shop in town! Great gifts! Great jewelry, candles, party cups and so much more!
This is one of those "I should have come here FIRST" shopping experiences because they had everything I was looking for. Moderate prices, excellent selection and variety, laid back & friendly customer service and free wine to help you break down those shopping insecurities. I'll definitely be back!
This is one of those shops that I can't believe I haven't reviewed, as I've stopped in here for years. They have plenty of moderately priced jewelry and housewares and doodads that make great gifts ... if you have the girly sorts to purchase for.
The staff has always been helpful without being pushy and there is often free wine while you shop (BONUS). Sometimes I hit the jackpot and sometimes not.
Love this little shop! It always has the cutest, most unique pieces, with great service!!
Fantastic shop selling beautiful things at affordable prices, with friendly, helpful staff. My go-to whenever I'm in New Orleans.
