Diamonds International: Stop in and see Eddy
Diamonds International is a jewelry chain with locations throughout North America but focused primarily in the Caribbean. The store carries a variety of watches and jewelry for both men and women. This is the only Diamonds International store I like. Eddy here is a good friend of a friend and is very reptuable. He is fair with prices and shows the best merchandise for your price point. Definitely come see him when you are shopping in Antigua.
Red Lane Spa: Wonderful Spa Products
My wife and I love the spa products from Red Lane; in particular their suncare line. Our last visit we purchased some after sun lotion, body lotion and a papaya facial mist for my wife. The prices are comprable to any other store brand and have an incredible scent. Just this past year they have made the product line available for online purchase so we can have them sent to our house whenenever we run out of it.
Heritage Quay: Heritage Quay
Heritage Quay is a purpose-built shopping area in St John's. It is aimed firmly at the day-trippers who visit from the cruise ships, with most shops selling duty free products such as cosmetics and jewellery. There are a few shops which sell more local produce such as coffee and spices, but the prices are quite steep compared to those on the market in the centre. Even if you don't want to shop, it's a pretty place to wander around in.
What to pay: Heritage Quay is quite expensive - try some of the shops or the market in the centre of town instead.Related to:

Shopping in St Johns
The only place on the island to shop is in the islands capital St Johns
There is nothing much to shop for on Antigua.
In St Johns you will find the usual tourist souvenir shops and can also find duty free jewellery and drinks.
Make your way to Redcliffe Quay where the cruise ships dock and you will find plenty of jewellery / diamond shops to keep you busy.
Redcliffe Quay overlooks the harbour on one side, and is one of the oldest parts of St. John’s. The restored Georgian buildings are painted bright and vibrant colours. There is a yacht marina there now, but this was the main trading place for slaves, rum, sugar and coffee between Antigua, Europe and Africa.
What to pay: Duty free shopping is much cheaper than Europe
They'll discount the ticket price somewhat, but thereis always another $50 to be squeeze out of them! - I saw it happen with 2 different shop assistants while we were there, where the customer was indecisive about the purchase.
Rum in Antigua!
Most of the shops are filled with all the same stuff.
What to buy: Liquor and cigarettes. Two of my daughters bad vices. Cig's were $13 a carton and liquor was cheap too!
Lady carrying box of jewelry on her head: The shopping comes to you!
I had to look twice when I saw this lady coming down the beach...she was balancing a jewelry case on her head! How unique!!
What to buy: I bought two gorgeous ankle bracelets from her..
What to pay: Sorry, can't remember
