Unusual European antiques, most from the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries, fill this shotgun house; the collection includes many large, very ornate pieces from the Louis XIV and XV eras. The inventory ranges from small decorative bowls and sconces to grand pianos and armoires.

I was recently strolling along Magazine St looking at antique shops. I entered Kevin Stone's shop and inquired about a style specific item. One of the attendants said they did not carry such things and homeowners of that particular style used other items for decoration. When I expressed casual disbelief that homeowners were furnishing a style specific home with items not specific to that style he said "If you are going to have that attitude i'm
not going to speak to you any longer". He then proceeded to 'busy' himself with his computer. When I apologized that I meant no offense and that I was simply surprised by the idea, he continued to pretend that I did not exist and was not speaking directly to him. His partner also took the same attitude. I promptly collected my spouse and left with a 'thank you' (no response) and 'I hope you have a good day' (no response). I was absolutely amazed at the childish behavior on display in this shop. If you are in the market for antiques or just out for a stroll on Magazine, avoid this shop completely. They have nothing you could want so badly as to put up with such malevolent behavior.

While visiting New Orleans and Magazine street, in order to step out of the rain, we stepped into Mr. Stone's shop for a few minutes. Mr. Stone was outstandingly rude and asked us to leave. "I don't know why you're looking at me like a deer in headlights. I'm absolutely serious. You may leave." This man does not deserve to do business with decent people. I don't care what kind of day he's had. I am impressed that I had enough composure to keep from
giving him a piece of my mind.
