The Cajun Village in Sorrento, Louisiana, has several vernacular Louisiana buildings on site. These buildings house all of the boutique shops as well as Al’s Coffee House. The buildings range in age from 190 years old to 90 years old. This blog will occasionally spotlight each building and the business that resides within it at The Cajun Village. Today’s post features Louisiana Pottery.

Louisiana Pottery is housed in a restored Acadian style home, c.1830. The home was originally located in St. James, LA and was occupied by the Schexnayder family.  There is a wonderful large front porch that many customers enjoy during their visit.  Some just swing on the porch while enjoying the peace and quiet of this laid back setting of yesteryear, and some prefer just to rock in the rocker while contemplating the day.  If you are a member of the Schexnayder family who lived in  this home, please feel free to visit during regular business  hours, and of course, do enjoy the swing and the rocker.

Louisiana Pottery is home to great collections of: etchings, original art, hand-blown glass, pine needle baskets, hand-carved wooden ducks and boats, books of Louisiana interest, cookbooks, and much more!

Below is a gallery of some of the works that can be purchased at Louisiana Pottery. Contact Judy (225) 675-5572 at Louisiana Pottery if you are interested in purchasing any of these wonderful pieces that are all made in Louisiana!
