This place was recommended by a guide and the minute I looked in the door I knew it was unique! The artistry, colors, ambiance made me wanting to come back. After my tour, I found my way back to this quaint little shop and I'm thrilled with my purchases; plus the history behind the pieces was an added bonus! If... More

Was looking for something that was attractive and at a reasonable price for a friend. I soon realized that being on the main street means rents are very high. So I started looking for off the street alternatives and really hit the jackpot. Found the Tropical Creations Gallery and Boutique in the Royal Dane Mall Now you have to look... More

Look for the Royal Dane Mall in central Charlotte Amalie. It is a maze of beautiful alleys, and finding this shop was a real treat. Tropical Creations features locally-made crafts. (This is to be compared to the junk made in China that is for offer in so many of the other shops in Charlotte Amalie.) So have a look for... More

Tulip Fleming is an extraordinary artist. Many of the things in her shop she has made. In addition there are other items of equal quality and creativity. One could spend an hour just looking at and learning about what she has for sale; where it came from and how it was made. Despite having been recognized for her efforts and... More

Found this cute little place by accident and so glad we did! Everything there is locally made. Beautiful, handmade jewelry, scarves, island dresses, etc. It's down a little alley called the Royal Dane Mall. Definitely worth the visit!

My 2 friends and I stopped into Tropical Creations just because we were in the area. Turned out everything in the store is handmade! Really beautiful, intricate detailed pieces, from art, to clothing, to accessories. All kinds of handmade items. I bought a woven purse that was completely covered in evenly cut, dangling pieces of seashell. Just gorgeous and of... More

I was walking down the alley where this store is located and a dress in the doorway caught my eye. It was displayed with a beautiful necklace too. I started speaking with the owner, Tulip, and she let me know that she makes all the jewelry and vases by hand. It was such beautiful, unique stuff. I tried on the... More

This is my favorite shop in St. Thomas! This shop is an oasis in the hurly burly of commercial St. Thomas. I purchased a gorgeous handmade batik scarf and it is out of this world - at an extremely reasonable price. The very friendly and helpful owner has a very large selection of fashion, jewelry, decorative items and artwork. This... More
