Palaui Island Shopping

  • monina_c's Profile Photo

    Shell craft

    by monina_c Updated Nov 4, 2014

    Being on an island rather limits the variety of shopping to be had. :)
    Punta Verde residents make souvenirs like key chains, cellphone doodads, penholder, wallets, curtain fringes, and christmas decors out of shells.

    What to buy: All items for sale are rather cheap considering the labor required to finish each item.

    What to pay: I bought a little bag for P50 ($1.25). Keychains cost P15 ($0.15). A parol cost P200 ($4)

    She sells seashells by the seashore!  ;) Great Bargain! The shell man!
