That Souvenir Place
207 Main Street
Located in a quaint historic cottage, That Souvenir Place at 207 Main Street is built on an Old Town business legacy.
Owner Tina Aime Falgout was born and raised in Bay St. Louis and is following in the footsteps of relatives who owned and operated Bobby Ann Bakery, a local favorite for decades in the 1900’s.
Falgout has already made her own mark as one of the town’s favorite businesses, judging by the ranks of youngsters who line up for New Orleans style Sno-Balls and other treats during warm weather months.
In addition to the family-favorite Sno-Balls, Falgout also serves up real soft serve ice cream, old fashioned malts (“it’s all in the ice cream you use!”), shakes, smoothies and floats.
One specialty is the “Bay Blizz,” a build-your-own combination of Sno-Ball, ice cream and candy. Dozens of photos cover a board by the counter, showing the delighted faces of Falgout’s customers – both young and old.
That Souvenir Place also lives up to its name by carrying lines of “made in the Bay” products, ranging from gifts, local artwork, pottery and home décor. Falgout brings over thirty years of retail experience to her business from restaurant management to executive positions that she served in thru out her career in the gaming industry
Her face lights up when she talks about creating a fun tradition for new generations of local families.
“A trip to Old Town for a Sno-Ball, it’s a definite memory-maker,” says Falgout. “And I love serving the children. You see those grins and it just makes your day.”
That Souvenir Place’s spring hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11am – 5pm. Summer hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 5pm and Sunday, 11am – 4pm.
