FIC West Store: Penguins for sale ;-)
What to buy: These penguins are nice. If you are not traveling elsewhere after your trip to the Antarctica, I suggest you get these if you truly want a penguin!
I've seen lots of people buying stuff toys, esp. those of penguins on the ship. They are cute but I don't hug any stuff toys in bed... I never did, not even as a child. So, don't get me one but I know you won't anyhow ;-)
Capstan Gift Shop: Secret Worlds
What to buy: I've no idea what these really are. Probably some kind of decorative items. But they sure are unique! This is the first time I've seen them! I won't mind it if my boyfriend get me one of these. ;-) Unique item!
Pastimes: Oh God, more T-shirts!
What to buy: If you haven't got enough T-shirts, by all means buy more. ;-)
As for me, I didn't buy any but I think these are very nice T-shirts. I did buy some ties with penguins on them for my friends & colleagues. Again, not cheap but reasonably priced for ties, imho. At least it's closer to prices for normal ties than the T-shirts are! & probably will last a long longer as well!
Harbourview Gift Shop: Mugs, haven't you have enough?
Generally most gift shops in Stanley are great. They offer a wide range of products & one of the best qualities I've seen so far in this part of the world! So make sure you get your fair share of shopping & souvenirs here. U won't have much chances in Antarctica. The products offered are well-designed & I like them very much. But beware of the prices! They are all quoted in Pounds Sterling & NOT cheap at all!
Lots of penguins designed souvenirs & I esp. like the aprons & mitts. Don't bother with heavy items like the mugs unless you are a collector!
