Working together with three local ladies and dear friends I have founded Boho Mercantile, a gypsy boutique. Driven by inspiration and our passion to create along with our deep appreciation for nature, folklore, native cultures and our sincere love for the community. A tiny salvaged wood and rusted tin building once stood on the banks of the bayou and housed a claw foot tub but now proudly stands in town and is home to many creations of interest and repurpose. It is also where we host the monthly Bayou Bazaar, held on the first Friday of each month from 6pm-9pm. An intimate open air event focused on local handcrafts, local farm grown eats and treats, and local music. Bringing together homegrown, handmade and vintage.
A place to offer our most recent creations and sometimes overflowing back stock.
A monthly gathering of the local and creative.
Our first bazaar of 2012 is Friday March 2nd from 6pm – 9pm. On Saturday, April 7th Boho Mercantile presents FRESH & LOCAL a fashion show fundraiser for Acadiana Food Circle held at The Blue Moon Saloon in Lafayette. Featuring original and vintage designs, jewelry, clothing and accessories created and curated considering the theme ‘into the future back to the earth’. There will be a silent auction along with a small selection of designs being sold with a portion of proceeds being donated to the non-profit AFC. As well as local sourced eats made by local restaurants serving conscious cuisine. All in celebration of a pure, bright, healthy, different, unconventional Lafayette.
