NOLA T-Shirt of the Month Club, a shop located on St. Ann Street in the vibrant French Quarter of New Orleans, is buzzing with excitement and speculation as the owners claim to have encountered a possible ghostly visitor.
Store owner Jackie Abston revealed to WGNO that around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, an inexplicable occurrence took place, hinting at the presence of a spirit.
After meticulously reviewing the store’s video surveillance footage, both Jackie and John Abston were astounded by what they discovered.

The footage revealed the side of the store being pushed open mysteriously, as if by an unseen force.
Moreover, a peculiar phenomenon was caught on camera—a fleeting white orb traversing one of the frames, while the reflection in another door appeared to show movement.
Curiously, upon inspecting the store, the owners found that nothing had been disturbed or misplaced.
Jackie humorously speculated, “We believe it was just a friendly French Quarter spirit just checking out our new t-shirt collection after having one too many Sazeracs.”
This, however, was not the first encounter the owners had experienced with otherworldly entities.
Jackie confessed to often hearing unexplained footsteps when alone in the store, and on occasion, the lamp would unexpectedly switch off.
Yet, rather than being frightened, she embraced the notion of a haunted store.
Jackie firmly believed that if the establishment was indeed haunted, it was by a genial ghost with an affinity for t-shirts and an unwavering love for the spirit of New Orleans.
Embracing the mystical aura that envelops the French Quarter, the Abstons expressed their conviction that this recent visitation was merely the beginning of their encounters with the local spirits.
With an indomitable spirit of their own, they eagerly anticipate future encounters, confident that the friendly ghosts will continue to grace their store and partake in the essence of all things New Orleans.
