What’s trending? Boutique shopping! If you are looking for something that stands out as a conversation piece or gives off “fashionista vibes,” look no further than the locally-owned shops in the Lake Area. Shop owners pour their hearts into making each shopping experience unique to their boutique – some even carry hand-made jewelry or locally produced fashion items. Scarves, clothing, boots, chic hats, pottery, art, leather goods, antiques, specialty stores for youngsters, and more – you’ll want to do more than window shopping! Also, be sure to check out shopping experiences in downtown Lake Charles while soaking in the sights, sounds, and flavors of Louisiana’s Playground!
