The Tiny Town In Louisiana That’s Absolute Heaven If You Love Antiquing
Everyone loves a good bargain buy, right? There’s something so rewarding when you find the perfect piece to complete your collection, or that one-of-a-kind item that would look great in your house. There’s one small town in Louisiana that’s perfect for anyone looking to spend some time antiquing. Let’s take a look.
Welcome to Breaux Bridge, the "Crawfish Capital of the World".
Located in St. Martin Parish right on Bayou Teche, this small city of about 8,000 is a wonderful city to spend some time exploring. Breaux Bridge is in the heart of Cajun country, and has some of the finest Cajun restaurants you’ll find anywhere. They’ve also got some amazing cajun and zydeco dancing attractions, swamp tours, and several festivals throughout the year. While you’re exploring, be sure to pop your head in to one (or all) of these antique stores—you’ll have a hard time leaving empty handed.
1. Angelle’s Vintage Treasures
This lovely little shop specializes in antique furniture and fun finds from all over the world. If you’re looking for something specific and you don’t see it, they’d be happy to track it down! (107 S Main St, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana 70517)
Opened in 2016, Artique is a fun little shop that’s great for picking up local arts and crafts, including handmade soaps and jewelry. (126 E Bridge Street, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana 70517)
3. Lagniappe Antiques Etc.
This massive 17,000 square-foot marketplace is the antique lover’s dream. Located in the historic downtown area, the building itself is even an antique.

Today, it houses some amazing antique finds, including rustic furniture, books, lamps, artworks and so much more. (124 W Bridge St, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana 70517)
