Long time camp friends Rosalind Jenkins and Mary-Martin France Nicholson started dreaming up the idea of Hilltop Shoppe after many summers at camp standing in line to receive a “happy” from home. In 2017 they made that dream a reality and opened up shoppe in New Orleans, Louisiana on Magazine Street.

Hilltop Shoppe is the kind of gift shop you can pop into in a hurry and emerge with the perfect “happy” or present. Hilltop carries everything from high-end bath necessities, pajamas, table top items, bar accessories, linens, pillows, books, art, and jewelry. It also provides a wedding and baby registry. We don’t think it gets much better than opening your home, gathering your friends and family around your table and serving delicious cocktails and bites. The passion for hospitality is the heart of what you’ll find at Hilltop Shoppe.
