More about us
Bay-Tique owner Jane Alford describes her new shop as “a fun little beach shop ” that sells stylish yet affordable Bay attire and gifts. Jane says that, to her, the style of Bay-Tique represents the personality of Bay St. Louis that she fell in love with when she moved here 21 years ago, a laid-back, funky, artsy, seaside community. Jane takes great pride in her town and that reflects in the unique hats and t-shirts that she designs and sells in her shop.
Located at 125 D Main St., in the heart of Old Town, Bay-Tique has something for everyone, including an assortment of clothing for women , as well as souvenirs, gifts and beach supplies. Shoppers also will find clothing, accessories, jewelry and artwork created locally.
“All of the artists represented in the store are local to Hancock county” Alford says.
The T-shirts and souvenirs found in the shop are specifically chosen and designed to promote Bay St. Louis, Hancock County and Mississippi. Alford has set a goal: she plans to devote 30% of her purchasing to local vendors and designers. At the same time, she recognizes that a local store that carries larger name brands such as Sanuk is a plus for Bay St. Louis.
Alford, who also owns The Carroll House Bed & Breakfast says that she came up with the idea of Bay-Tique by listening to comments from her guests about what they would like to see here in Bay St. Louis when they come to visit. The new shop’s motto is “Bay ware for all seasons.” So be sure to check them out in the fall and holiday season for casual fall clothing and seasonal gift items.
Bay-Tique is a boutique that is slightly edgy, always Fun!
