Love to go here for a unique gift. Beautiful items and different. All prices too, so not just expensive or cheap. Place is a little cramped, and because it is popular, it gets crowded. You will love the selection of lots of different items at decent prices.

One thing you will quickly find about Bayou Booksellers is that books are far from being all they sell. Simply put, "if they don't have it, you don't need it"! They are a great source of flags, college souvenirs, you name it. Great place for that last minute gift and reasonable prices.

This is the best place yet to get interesting Louisiana themed gifts. Also a large variety of unique gifts. The owner/shop keeper is the sweetest lady. I don't know her name or I would tell you. I am a local that moved away from the State. This shop is a must stop when I visit Hammond.

When I need a clue, Amanda's store is perfect. Great variety for all the people on your list and any occasion. Has lots of local culture for when you're passing through and want a souvenir! Choices galore and caring and friendly service!!

I enjoyed browsing the shop and looking at all the knick-knacks and other items for sale. The ladies working were friendly and answered any questions I had. I will visit again when I'm in Hammond, for sure.
