Wayside Inn Thrift Shop

This quaint little thrift housed in the historic Wayside Inn built in 1894 in downtown Lafayette is still making history.  There’s always some colorful kitsch to be had, like the set of six lobster bibs I recently spotted (perfect for that lobster bake on the Delta!).  This is a great place to find higher end designer wear and great scores on kid’s clothing for a song.  Great place for halloween costumes and holiday gifts.  They’ve also taken over the costume rental shop next door, so venture further back in the store for vintage finds.

  1. I am looking for a top and skirt costume similar to the one in the “Chiquita Banana” youtube video of the Terry twins from 1949. Do you have any suggestions?
