“Find Love in All the Local Places” Lagniappe Box was created 3 years ago as we found ourselves really digging deep into ways to connect smaller, upcoming makers with consumers. A team dream for love of all things local.  We knew we weren't the only ones out there, eagerly looking for the next local artisan or product. We also know we all have very busy lives & not everyone has time to stroll through fairs and festivals, so we decided to bring the discovery of Louisiana to your doorstep every month, we couldn’t do that without, so thank you!!! Louisiana is such a great place to call home. We celebrate the diversity, the culture, the people, the love - and most importantly the food!  Building the love for our local community through each and every box has been so much fun, we have shipped out over 5,000 Lagniappe Boxes in the last three years spreading the word around 50 + Louisiana businesses is the reason behind it all!   “As a local small business, we love to support our fellow small businesses,” said Meredith Waguespack, owner of Sweet Baton Rouge. “Not only does our Local Lagniappe Box support local businesses, but it celebrates our community and state.” Lots of Louisiana Love Sweet Baton Rouge ·  sweetbatonrouge.com Exclusive to Lagniappe Box Our Lots of Louisiana Love t-shirt encompasses the love for our great state.
