Shop at New Orleans’ Longest-Running Independent Record Store and Smoke Shop Before You Head Back to Class
After two years of pandemic closures and remote learning, it’s great to finally have a return to back-to-school normalcy and all the little rituals that come along with the new semester: new classes, a fresh start, getting stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic at school crossing zones…OK, not everything about returning to the classroom is great, especially the cost. The average cost of back-to-school supplies is $840. And yes, that figure does apply to school-age kids, but if you’re a college student, and therefore a bigger kid, then logically, you have bigger expenses. After all, elementary school students don’t have a dorm to think about.
That’s where we come in. Throughout the entire month of August, it's sale time at Mushroom New Orleans. We’re thrilled to welcome students back to campus and our record store. Let us show you just how thrilled.
Buy 3 Get 1 Free on All Posters, Playbills, and Sephia Prints
Think posters look juvenile? Only if you actually have a poster of Juvenile. Posters are as sophisticated as you want them to be. Go glowy with a blacklight version, or channel Apartment Therapy’s budget-chic by framing a cluster of color-coordinated posters. Since we’re offering a buy-three-get-one deal, you won’t break the bank by going maximalist with oversized home décor items. We’ve even got tall, narrow door posters, so you can pretend you’re stepping into an enchanting surrealist landscape instead of a Berber-carpeted hallway.
All Tapestries Are $24.99, or 2 for $40.00
Tapestries are the ultimate “wow, how did I live without this?” item. Sure, it seems extraneous, but there’s so much you can do with a gorgeous, tie-dyed tapestry that looks straight from the stylishly appointed tent of some Burning Man influencer. You can use it as a wall hanging, a picnic blanket, a sarong, a sheet for a questionable hostel bed…the possibilities are endless. Especially when you get two tapestries, because then you can match your decor, and very few things are cooler than that.
Buy 1 Get 1 Half Off on All Music T-Shirts
The back-to-school glow-up is a timeless rite of passage. You can’t start a new semester with the same old haircut and wardrobe. How will people know about the mind-expanding experiences you had during summer if you look like the same person you were in May? A spiffy new T-shirt is a way to project both personal growth and admiration for newly dropped albums. Plus, they really do go with anything.
All Glass Pipes, Water Pipes, and Hookahs Are 25% Off
You didn’t think we’d forget to discount the pipes, did you? We’re a smoke shop, and we’re here to make your smoking experiences more pleasurable and affordable. Endear yourself to your roommates by making a shiny new hookah the centerpiece of your living area. It’s a great way to make new friends, but don’t take our word for it; ask members of the Indian, Iranian, and Ethiopian cultures who have been bonding over hookah since the 1500s.
Are you motivated to come into The Mushroom and cross some shopping items off your back-to-school list? We hope so! We’re open from 10 a.m. to midnight every day. See you soon!
