Shanty Too
The picturesque little village of St. Francisville was the commercial hub of the surrounding plantation country during the 19th century and is today enjoying a resurgence of popularity with shoppers thanks to quaint specialty shops like THE SHANTY TOO.

Owned by Fay and her husband Danny, the shop began life in a little shanty cabin 29 years ago and is now located right in the midst of St. Francisville's Historic District. There it has acquired a well-deserved reputation for its hand selected merchandise, personalized service and award-winning seasonal decorations.
