RARA-AVIS: New Orleans Used Book Stores

I was in New Orleans about 9 months ago and I found a pretty nice and pleasantly dusty used book store in the French Quarter. It was called Bechham's Bookshop and it was at 228 Decatur Street (betwen Iberville and Bienville Sts.). It was no Strand or Powell's, but it had a fairly sizable collection on two floors. I can't vouch for its detective/hardboiled/noir offerings -- I was on more of a nonfiction jag at the time.

The promotional bookmark I got with my purchase also advertises another secondhand book store -- Librarie Bookshop at 823 Chartes Street -- but I never got there myself.
