Little Village proudly serves as your home away from home in the Historic St. Andrews community of Panama City. At this lakeside boutique, shopping is the name of the game, for sure, but their offerings don’t stop there. Game nights, live music performances, and endless relaxation all await, so stop by whenever you want to soak in all the good vibes.
The full boutique experience starts as soon as you arrive onsite. The view of their chic lakeside cottage – complete with its thatched roof – sets the stage for an amazing visit. From there, it just gets better and better, too. The vivid flower beds, cute palm trees, and peace sign on the gate create a truly inviting aesthetic as you walk through the front doors.
Once you land inside their shop, you’ll delight in all the handmade local goods, including clothing, jewelry, and artwork galore. In fact, there’s so much good stuff, that’ll likely end up hard-pressed to choose between it all. Thankfully, you can just pick out a few of your favorite pieces, and then put their shop on your map for later visits. Before long, stopping by will become a regular tradition, ensuring that you always know just where to get the best gifts.
After you finish up shopping, it’s definitely not time to leave. Their shop serves as a community gathering place all throughout the year, and for good reason. Local musicians often set up in the corner of the covered porch to play their tunes, for starters. On top of that, they’re always hosting fun events, like game night, for all to enjoy. If you’re just in need of somewhere to relax, they can do that, too. There’s seating all over their shop and grounds, ready for you to make yourself cozy and stay a while.
Top things to do here include:
