You are kidding, it's ranked #2 thing to do in Great Exuma! We browsed there for ten minutes and walked out. We don't see anything spectacular. It's only a souvenirs shop! We wouldn't make a special trip there, only when we needed to go downtown for groceries and gas.

We visited the shop because of the recommendations here and were disappointed. There are a few nice handmade souvenirs, but mostly expensive clothes and typical tourist supplies. The little market just across the street next to the government building was much nicer in our opinion. There the women, who actually make the jewelry, baskets and bags, sell them themselves!

Sandpiper has many great items including hand-crafted art, paintings, sketches, pottery and carvings. They have a wide selection of shirts and tops for both men and woman, nicer things than what you would find at the straw market in town.

So very nice to see local art works available in the Bahamas and Sandpiper provides just that. Loved the BW images taken by local legend Basil Minns and was so very fortunate to meet him and have him sign my prints.

We enjoyed our best shopping experience here other than the straw market which is an experience all of it's own. The Sandpiper had everything I was looking for in the way of gifts and clothing.

Great shop and definitely recommend a visit - especially if you're looking for gifts to bring home. We bought a really cute cover up for our daughter and a few glass bead bracelets. I thought the prices were very reasonable and would love to have purchased one of the paintings but would be difficult to bring home on the plane.
