Offering a coastal experience nestled in Old Town Bay St Louis, Mississippi is the newest location of California Drawstrings.  Open for four years, Keenan first opened and quickly outgrew sharing commercial space with Lulu's. "I believe that you are what you make it," She says. Now located in its own building California Drawstrings can be found on Main Street in The Bay. Enjoy the same feel of the original NOLA store with a slower pace and coastal hippie vibe.
 
 
    The original California Drawstrings, Established in 1984, is a shop where jazzy blues style music  while southern cuisine smells float through the air and art galleries surround the shop in the French Quarter on Royal St in New Orleans, Louisiana. The experience of shopping becomes part of the enjoyment of finding that perfect men's linen shirt or that perfect women's cotton dress. Split into one side for the ladies and the other side for the men.
 
 
    When you think of fine resort wear for men and women think of locally Gulf Coast owned California Drawstrings, Southern Cotton Company specializing in natural fabric clothing, from FLAX, Cut Loose, Comfy, Matchpoint, Mosaic, Banana Blue, Tommy Bahama and much more. Open 7 days a week in convenient locations along the Gulf Coast of Louisiana and Mississippi.  "We carry the largest collections of resort wear easy to wear, comfortable clothing, relaxed look with linen and cotton. Carrying every size from XS- 3X for men and women, "says Business Entrepreneur, Linda Keenan Owner of California Drawstrings.
 
 
    For twenty four years California Drawstrings is located off Walker Alley in Covington, Louisiana. The Covington location is a smart spot for Keenan to own an outlet store. What is not sold in NOLA or in The Bay is taken to the outlet location in Covington marked at discounted prices.
 
 
    All locations have one thing in common and that is honest friendly service with class. Enjoy a glass of wine or a cold beer while you choose a perfect fit fedora, comfy resort style shoes, unique accessories or a new statement jewelry piece. Have a pleasant conversation with a new friend while you shop at California Drawstrings. "If you surround yourself with positive mentality you will be successful," says Linda Keenan, Owner of California Drawstrings, Southern Cotton Company.
