M.S. Rau is an antique shop which could double as a fine art gallery where all the items on display are for sale. The shop, at 630 Royal Street, hosts steampunk style rarities, art from world-renowned masters, exquisite jewelry and now and then a wild-card like a stuffed wooly mammoth.

Royal Antiques has been offering fine art finds since 1899 at 309 Royal Street. Featuring more than 20,000 square feet of showrooms, Royal Antiques was founded by Hermina Keil, whose customers included Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson.

Wander down Royal for even more hidden treasures, and you'll find more charming antique shops than on any other promenade in the United States.
