    Pitcairn locals: Pitcairn souvenirs

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Feb 24, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pitcairn souvenirs

    Even if you do not visit the island, the locals will go to your cruise to sell you souvenirs. The accept every currency, from US Dollars to euros.
    If you can get ashore, then, in Adamstown or in the same pier will sell you fruits and souvenirs.

    What to buy: Pitcairn stamps are very valuable. T shirts and reproductions of the Bounty are also popular. I saw Bounty reproductions being sold by 125 US Dollars plus 10 more for the box. I could not afford that price and did not buy it.

    What to pay: Every tourist uses to buy something to the locals

    Randy and Nadine and the Handicrafts: Pitcairn Island Handicrafts

    by CGTex Written May 24, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Randy is a direct descendant of Fletcher Christian.

    Randy and Nadine were married on the 30th of June 2002 in the SDA church on Pitcairn Island, and recently they celebrated the birth of the first child born on Pitcairn in 17 years - Emily Rose Christian. Emily was born on the 14th September 2003. They also have a son Bradley Christian. They reside "out of town" in an area known as Flatland.

    Once a year, Pitcairn Islanders take two open longboats on a risky 110 mile trip to cut MIRO wood on uninhabited Henderson Island. Carvings are generally made from MIRO, TAMANU, and/or TAU wood, depending on the color, texture, and use the carved item is to be put. Each carving takes several days to make, and time can only be spent on carving when necessary survival tasks are completed. These are not mass-produced carvings, they are individual works of art, dependent upon the imagination of the creator, and the shape of the piece of wood used. The woodworking skill dates back to 1823, when seaman John Buffett agreed to stay on Pitcairn as the first schoolteacher from abroad. A woodcarver himself, he taught his techniques to his friends and neighbors.

    What to buy: Each handmade wooden item is signed by Randy and will be packed with care and sent to you upon receipt of your order.

    All prices in USD. Postage is 20% of total cost of order, leave Cheques undated. (Please note, we cannot accept Euro Cheques at this time; however, all Travelers cheques are accepted)

    Pitcairn Island Pure honey: Pitcairn Island

    by CGTex Written May 24, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "With all the natural sweetness of tropical fruits and flowers"

    Click to buy The honey season is now in full swing, so now is the time to buy!

    Pitcairn Island Pure honey is packaged in 250g jars with a minimum order of 2 jars.
    The price per jar is NZ$10.00 + post & packing

    In May 1998, the UK Government aid agency, the Department for International Development, funded an apiculture programme for Pitcairn which included training for Pitcairn's bee keepers and a detailed analysis of the disease status of Pitcairn bees and honey. As a result, Pitcairn is now able to export honey products to New Zealand and beyond.

    Pitcairn has one of the most disease free bee populations of anywhere in the world and the honey produced is of an exceptionally high quality. The apicultural scientist conducting the project, also found that Pitcairn bees were a particularly placid variety and within a short time, was able to work with them wearing minimal protection. It would therefore seem that the export of live Queen bees is another potential earner for the Pitcairn Islanders. The numbers of hives on the island is now around 30, with potential for perhaps 10 times that amount.

    The rich and intense fruitiness of Pitcairn's honey is attributed to the nectar from the Mango, Lata, Passion Flower, Guava and Roseapple flowers found in abundance on Pitcairn.
