We've been 2 times in Barbados and both times before we headed back to Cruise Port, we stopped here. Little "village" where are lots of different shops, boutiques, craftsmen and also a bar :) Big part of Barbados - especially Bridgetown- is really commercialized, where local art says "Made in China". So this has been a good place to do some shopping and this way you don't have to carry your stuff whole day before return to ship.

Overall not as interesting as expected.
One real exception is CSS Art and Crafts run by Shonette Williams. She made two blouses for us and they are really nice. Highly recommended.

Jamal Ifill had some beautifully crafted blown glass pieces. I will shop there again! We visited several other shops and did find a few unique copper jewelry, however about 1/3 of the shops were closed when we were there.

Interesting shopping center - different shops to look at. I enjoyed going in and out of different retailers. Some have the same items others completely different. Worth a look.

We have been to Barbados many times over the years and love this craft center--it has beautiful LOCALLY made crafts, often times for sale by the actual artisan! The craft center is a series of small shops...like an outdoor mall.

TIP: There are a few different buildings in the complex, so if you get to the end of one building, look around the corner...there are other buildings! Beautiful hand-made baskets for sale by the family who makes them towards the very rear building in this craft center. Also, "The Monkey Pot" store in the front of the craft center is one of my favorites.
