U. S. Virgin Islands Shopping

  • Souvenir Shopping on a Budget

    If you want to do some souvenir shopping on a budget, head to the Vendor Plaza in Charlotte Amalie. The Vendor Plaza is where a number of local vendors have set up booths and tents selling a variety of souvenirs. The Vendor Plaza is located across from the Emancipation Park and Fort Christian. You are able to haggle with the vendors and get a good...

  • Grocery Shopping Near Red Hook

    If you rent a villa or condo on St. Thomas or St. John, you will be in need of provisions at some point. The best supermarket I have come across so far is a few minutes outside of Red Hook on St. Thomas. As you are driving to Red Hook from Charlotte Amalie, you can't miss it. The prices are of course higher than in the States due to the extra cost...

  • Havensight Shopping Center

    If shopping is your passion, go to Havensight Shopping Mall. Browse around and also take the time to admire the architecture. There are plenty of stores here.This is also the place where all the cruise ships are docking, so it may get crowded if there are several ships there. Rum Balls are a must. Use your best judgement with the rest of the...

  • Buy Fresh Fruit from Locals

    You will see locals selling veggies and fruit on the road. They just have a small stand where they display fresh fruit and veggies. Stop by and buy some fruit. They do taste much better than the ones you buy from the stores back home. This picture was taken one foggy morning, when we woke up early to explore the island. We got some tasty fruit and...

  • Are you looking for local art by local...

    David Hill is St Thomas' favorite young artist. Just visit his gallery at the Royal Dane Mall area downtown and you'll see for yourself why his art is special. Any art piece that you fall in love with and can afford to purchase. $25.00 to ?????

  • CHRISTIANSTED, ST. CROIX

    If you want some great shopping bargains in the USVI’s, this is the place to go. Here’s why:Although St. Croix is the largest of the three main US Virgin Islands, it has never cultivated the level of tourism that St. Thomas & St. John have managed to build up. This is partially because it has had other means of support for the locals through out...

  • CRUZ BAY, ST. JOHN

    Although some cruise ships also stop at Cruz Bay, you'll have no where near the crowds to contend with here on St. John. And the quality of local artwork far surpasses Charlotte Amalie's plethora of cheap imports & "collectibles". This is the island where a lot of the artists actually live!This link gives a complete list for shopping Cruz Bay, with...

  • CHARLOTTE AMALIE, ST. THOMAS

    Charlotte Amalie, the main port on St. Thomas, is the duty-free mecca of the Caribbean, and the huge cruise ships that dock at nearby Havensight regularly disgorge hoards of tourists hungry for those deals on designer items. In addition to the expected Hermes handbags & Rolex watches, you'll also find all sorts of art galleries, a wonderful shop...

  • TILLETT GARDENS, ST. THOMAS

    Reknowned English artist Jim Tillet founded the wonderful Tillett Gardens in the early 1960's, on the site of an old Danish farm. Although he is since deceased, his former protege Sonny Thomas keeps the dream alive, & reproduces Jim Tillett's work in the gallery that forms the heart of Tillett Gardens.But this is far more than a cluster of...

  • CORAL BAY, ST. JOHN

    For a bit of a driving adventure, rent a vehicle on St. John & drive to the far side of the island, to the village of Coral Bay - just remember, driving on these islands is not for the faint of heart! See Transportation Tips if you doubt me.Once there, keep an eye out for the broken surfboard sign / bench that leads you to a cluster of shops & a...

  • CHRISTIANSTED, CONTINUED...

    However, it is lean and hungry right now, and tourists are much more welcome than they have been in the past. The huge Hovensa Refinery (formerly Hess Refinery) has laid off large numbers of employees, due to its sporadic output. Hovensa refines Venezuelan oil, and Venezuela has been fighting its own political battles, disrupting& drastically...

  • Shopping for anything not touristy

    Pretty much the only place to buy stuff on the island that's not the marked-up touristy stuff is KMart. You also get to see lots of authentic people who live on the island doing their everyday shopping. This is the place to buy alcohol. It's cheaper than in the US, and plentiful. Buy it to drink there, buy it to take home, but be sure to check...

  • Dronningens Gade, Charlotte Amalie

    Dronningens Gade, also known as Main Street, is the primary shopping thoroughfare in the capital city of Charlotte Amalie. Although primarily swamped by gaudily-clad cruise ship passengers seeking the tacky wares spilling onto the sidewalks, it has its share of upmarket amenities as well, including quite a few notable jewlry and watch stores. In...

  • Charlotte Amalie

    A taste of America. I went in once and the women's section was tiny as was the kids section. The men's department on the other hand is fairly big. Prices seemed average, so unless you need something, I wouldn't bother. You won't get anything cheaper than the US here.

  • Charlotte Amalie

    A mixture of local products, typical tourist stuff and things you might find at home. Jewellery is big here, and there are many stores selling high priced necklaces, bracelets, earings, etc. Local art. Plenty of stores selling key rings, postcards and rum. Mostly the same stores that you'll find in Havensight, with more jewellers and a local feel....

  • A Tax and Duty Free Haven

    If you're interested, St. Thomas is a great place to purchase many items tax /duty free. My husband and I stopped to look at rings at Diamonds International where he eventually purchased one he was very impressed with. The service was good and not overbearing. Definitely high end jewelry, porcelain, liquors (especially rum of all flavors), and...

  • K-Mart

    O.k, so you've come on holiday, and you want to stay away from everything you can get at home. But, you've forgotten your sun lotion, batteries, or you need more diapers. Whatever, you know K-Mart has it. this store isn't as good as the ones in the USA, but it has most of what you need. And it's at prices you know. They'll charge you more for these...

  • Tourist stuff plus more

    This is the mall besides which all the cruise ships dock. It's THE MAIN shopping area in St Thomas, with everything from t-shirts and key-rings, to books and diamonds. There's a pharmacy here, a card store, a Hello Kitty store!, and a bus that will take you around for free. Although it's very touristy here, locals shop here too, and it's very...
