Fodor's Review

A small compound of artists' and furniture-makers' studios includes the headquarters of this beloved local folk artist whose easily recognizable work can be found hanging all across New Orleans. "Be Nice or Leave," "Be Gay and Stay," "Shalom, Ya'll," and "Shut Up and Fish" are just a few of his popular themes. Dr. Bob's shop is chock-full of original furniture, colorful signs, and unidentifiable objects of artistic fancy. Prices start as low as $30 for a small "Be Nice"

and most pieces are in the $200–$500 range. The sign outside advertises the open hours: "9 am – 'til." Best to call ahead.
