I could spend a day in this place
Feb 2020
I have always loved this type of gift/book/miscellaneous shop. Every corner and every aisle is filled with exceptional gadgets, garden art, children’s games, pet gifts, stationary, greeting cards and the like. I wonder what it’s like to take their inventory once a year...there are thousands of unique and interesting items here. When we visit Mariner’s Inn for lunch we always step across the street to visit here to see the latest items. I never walk out without something cute or intriguing. They also have cookbooks and a wide assortment of Louisiana themed books, too.

Do you like reading books? Don't come here. It's a gift shop with a few books. Very expensive ! We are avid readers and was looking for old books .

Books?? Not Much Help...
Dec 2018 • Couples
We were from out of town and stopped in specifically to find a book by a certain author. We were told by the nicely attired lady in charge that they aren’t really a bookstore but do have a few books of local interest. In fact she more or less said, ‘who really reads actual books, nowadays...’ Bayou Booksellers is mostly a gift shop and they do have a lot of that type merchandise. They can order a book for you, they stated. So can Amazon.

Lovely Shop

Must stop in. There is SO much to see in this shop. If you can't take it all in - walk across the street to Mariners. The burgers, bloody Mary's and crab and artichoke soup are some of my favorites. Then go back and shop some more.
