It may have been the day we walked through, but there was one lady there with the stuff she was selling, like beach towels and t-shirts. Don't bother stopping unless you are killing time.

Very nice facility, although not very well lit. All of the crafts people were very friendly and helpful.

Dorothea was wonderful to us at the Bahamas craft Centre! What a gracious woman! We bought gifts for ourselves as well as family. She was very kind and not pushy at all. Beautiful jewelry!
