Saint Lucia Shopping

  • Vegetables and Souvenirs

    As we drove around St. Lucia, we saw various roadside stands with things for sale. I haven't shopped at any of them

  • Souvenirs at the Rain Forest Tram

    At the end of the tram excursion, we had time to have a drink in the Hummingbird Café and shop and buy souvenirs. There were logo items, t-shirts, batiks, clothing and lots of souvenirs. I bought some items made from grass - little baskets and coasters

  • Wood Carvings

    Here was where they showed us how they did the wood carvings. They do the carvings out of one piece of wood and the wood itself tells them how to do it. They had wall plaques, masks, and abstract figures. They said they got the color by using shoe polish - Kiwi. We bought a small fish for our son-in-law. There is an on-line shop

  • Souvenir shopping near the cruise docks

    All Caribbean ports have markets set up just outside the cruise docks and St. Lucia is not an exception. On our walk between the Carnival docks and the Princess docks we passed through the market for our dock and their dock, the individual shop keepers imploring you to come check out their wares. We weren't looking to buy anything but I was...

  • Souvenirs and Essentials

    Sandals has several resort shops that carry everything from jewelry, clothing, souvenirs and tolietries. We always pick something up for the people back home especially baseball caps for my Dad and Father in law as well as a tee shirt for myself. Yes the prices can be a bit more than back home but heay I'm on vacation.

  • Sulphur Soap

    Well I normally don't buy bar soap but I thought why not and I figured it would make a decent cheap gift to give. It claims to relieve certain ailments such as acne, mosquito bites, skin rashes and some more. It does help with the bug bites I found but haven't tried it with anything else. I was hoping it would have a more of a sulphur smell for...

  • Kweyol Dictionary

    Well even though I suck with languages (I can't even speak English and that's my only language) I have an interest in dictionaries for smaller languages. In St. Lucia they speak a certain type of Creole that they call Kweyol. It's 325 pages long with some easy pages for the basics (body parts and numbers). In the kweyol side they also provide the...

  • Craft Markets

    I found the people in the craft markets 2 -3 blocks from the pier to offer reasonable prices and easier to deal with than other craft markets that I have been too. They were not pushy. They let you take your time to look around and see what you like. The prices are not listed on the items because you can haggle with them for a good price. Jewelry...

  • Bananas galore!

    One of the weirdest and most unique things you can take home from Saint Lucia is banana ketchup! It may sound a bit strange, it looks pale orange, it consists of banana pulp, onions, garlic, vinegar and spices and it tastes more like ordinary (tomato) ketchup then bananas. Makes excellent chicken marinades . In a local JQ's supermarket in Vieux...

  • Don't Buy the First Thing You See

    There is an open market place in the Castries near the Sandals Halcyon resort that has row after row of the same items. They are all selling them for different prices, so don't buy from the first people you see when you walk in the door. Someone else will sell you the same thing much cheaper in the back of the market. And you can go from vendor to...
