Sans Souci is always interesting and changing. I get inspired every time we go in for a visit. It is a place we always visit when we go to Lafayette.

Though I do not visit often enough, this store sells mostly contemporary art of various media made by local artists. Even if you don't purchase anything it is well worth a visit.

Wherever we travel, I am always looking for a place to browse crafts and art made by the locals. This shop is a gem, filled with all kinds of "eye candy". Easy to get to near lots of other sites in downtown Lafayette. Enjoy.
