Celebrate the coolest beach boutique on the Gulf Coast of
Mississippi. Bay-Tique Bay Wares located in the heart of the
Old Town Bay St. Louis Historic Shopping District; keep it
fresh by creating a fun, laid back atmosphere for patrons, making
them loyal friends who return again and again. Bay-Tique is a
contemporary slightly edgy beach shop with constant new
arrivals. All merchandise is hand-picked using a creative spirit by
Bay-Tique Owner, Jane Alford and Manager, Karen Grumbine.
"We are relaxed with the same interests," says Grumbine.
Years back, as Owner of the local Carroll House Bed & Breakfast
in Bay St. Louis, Jane Alford would listen to her customers speak
of their travels. They always had the problem of no beach supplies
and no home town souvenirs to be found within her Gulf Coast
community. This situation needed to be solved. The smart
business opportunity allowed her to open a tiny spot to do just
that. Bay-Tique was born and soon moved to a better and larger
location closer to the beach. Add her charismatic flare of artistic
jewelry and gifts to a fresh vibe of coastal women's apparel and
Bay-Tique Bay Wares is what it is today.
"Finding unique merchandise and setting up displays give
ambience to the store. This provides an awesome outlet of creative
expression for me", says Alford. She is a positive influence in her
community as a business woman and is a part of the local Bay art
scene. Support the Bay St. Louis art community by shopping at
Bay-Tique to find unique jewelry and gifts made by other local
designers and Gulf Coast artists. "Hands to Hearts" are among
the international causes supported by Bay-Tique.
Forget your suntan lotion or your flip flops? Hats, sunscreen,
cover-ups, and beach towels are easy to find. Start your beach adventure at Bay-Tique to mark off your list of supplies. Define
your Bo-Ho style for an event with Bay-Tique women's apparel

Hard to find designer beach style brands such as Sanuk shoes
for men and women, Hobo bags, Dune jewelry, Quay sunglasses,
and Fins can only be found in Bay St. Louis at Bay-Tique. "We
embrace the style of ‘Boho Chic’, catering to customers 30ish-and
up who want to dress progressively while not dressing like they
are in their 20’s," says Alford, Owner of Bay-Tique.
Giving an added touch of charm, her sweet dog is a fixture to
the laid back beach scene. Stop by to meet mascot, Tinkerbell,
