The oldest shop in this town! Easy to see why this one is a standout. It is located near the museum & information center and was once an automobile showroom. One of the owners is always at the store, and knows lots of local history. The store is bright and cheery with a wide range of things for sale (everything from books & bird houses to clothes, jewelry, baby clothes, toys, antiques, prints and just too much to list) Some of the same brands & products I saw in other places were less pricey here. There is also a cute old fashioned candy and sweets shop that is named for the founder’s niece. New owners were loyal customers and friends with the former owner who passed away.

Darling shop in St. Francisville. I have shopped here for at least 30 years, and just love the new owners as much as the old ones. I think this is the oldest store in town and I have never been disappointed, so ignore the haters’ reviews and see for yourself. I got a cute pair of Spring Step sandals for much cheaper than the same ones on Amazon.
