When a good friend called and wanted me to go to lunch, and shopping, I was thrilled. She wanted to go to one of my favorite gift shops, The Jefferson Street Market, in downtown Lafayette. The market is filled with beautiful gifts, original art, and vintage and antique items. There are over 100 booths in JSM and we had no problem spending several hours in this fabulous market.

Below is my favorite booth in the market and I have bought many fabulous items for gifts and for my home, from this room. I have my eye on that lamp. (on right) And I love the mirror, too.
This is a display of wonderful paintings by one of my favorite artists, Julie Breaux. Many local and regional artists sell their paintings, in this gallery. I love the portrait of a Cajun girl.
This is one of my friend's faves where she finds lots of good stuff. I especially like the leopard chair and , I am thinking about buying it for my bathroom, and the vintage cards.
After a while, we decided to grab a light lunch at the market's restaurant, The Whole Wheatery Eatery. We both ordered a Bible sandwich, which comes with avocado, lettuce, tomato, carrots, sprouts, and shredded cheese of your choice, served on pita or whole grain bread. Cest bon with an iced green tea ! I know, not your typical Cajun lunch, but I'm going light, until Thanksgiving!
