    This shop was on the ship recommended list which usually means that they are more expensive. We could see it from the ship - it was right on the main street.They had Land™ leather goods, casual wear for men & women, alcohol, tobacco, sunglasses, indigenous crafts & souvenirs. We went in and looked, but didn't buy anythingOpening Hours: Mon-Fri...

  • Coffee or Clothes??

    Outside the museum was a craft type fair. I had a hard time finding stuff that didn't have very loud garish colors, but I bought a pink T-shirt and a little dark pink dress for two granddaughters. After I got them back to the ship, I found out they were made in Thailand and China, and were not local. Oh well. I did get some EC coins for our...

  • Grass Baskets

    One local craft that you can buy are baskets and mats made from grass. We saw examples of this craft in the museum. I thought they would make good gifts, so I bought some in the local market, and at the rain forest tram headquarters, but they are displayed at most outdoor booths. You can bargain.The phone number and name of the store that is listed...

  • Shopping Day

    I bought some sandals for my wife in Roseau. I went right into the shop where they were being made. If you like hand made sandals you would have lots to choose from. I believe I had to part with $90 ec. but the fact that she liked them when I got home made it a good purchase. Also bought some hand painted t-shirts, costume jewellery , hats,...

  • Rosseau

    The whole cruise ship dock area is loaded with touristy souvenirs. Most are made in China it seems...However, Rosseau has lots of shops with stuff. I found the rest of the island didn't have many places to buy souvenirs, so if you need to buy your mandatory magnet or postcard, do it here.

  • RE: The shop that was open on Sunday

    If you're going to Dominica, this shop is well worth a visit. The shop sells popcorn, hotdogs, drinks and through a door in the back is a large selection of American "candy" or sweets as we say over here. The most amazing thing about this shop was the girl behind the counter. Never have I had a more enjoyable experience buying some popcorn! Imagine...

  • A little grocery store that WAS open on...

    The local tourist shops all told us that because it was Sunday none of the local shops were open. OK, I took that at face value. Then, walking one street back of main street, I found a shop with an open door. As I looked in I found it was a small grocery store. It had snacks and drinks and assorted items one might find useful. The batteries I...

  • Typical items for sale at the tent...

    I just took a quick picture at this one setup at a main street tent booth in Roseau. I took it because it had a bowl that said Dominica and because it was so typical of the items being sold by almost every booth. You can see the baskets and bamboo bowl sets. You can also see the plastic snakes. Dominica has no poisonous snakes but, being a...

    Also prevalent in Roseau were the sidewalk tent booths that provided tourists with all sorts of baskets and handicrafts. These sidewalk booths were situated on the main street, beyond the 'Duty Free Emporium' as well as down a number of the alleyways.The proprietors of these booths were always talking with the tourists or with each other. They...

  • Limited Sunday shopping in Roseau,...

    Almost directly across from the cruise ship berth, on the other side of the street, is a nice building with a sign proclaiming 'Duty Free Emporium'. Since we had a few hours before taking our tour into the highlands, and it was one of the few shops open for business, this was a shop we just had to see.We happen to be in Roseau on a Sunday and...
