  • This amazing shop contains many, many interesting creations made by proprietor Stephen from many recycled, and always local materials. Vibrant pieces adorn the walls, and items of great interest can be found in every nook and cranny. Be sure to ask how the items were created. Stephen and his staff were incredibly helpful, and patient, and happy for us to take a great deal of time investigating everything. Take your time. You won't leave empty handed.
  • Local Artist Stephen Murphy makes most of his Art Work from Recyclable material. Metal and wooden Fish, Masks etc Wonderful watercolours, and a line of indigenous T-Shirts. Well worth checking out.
  • Unique local art. Be sure to ask the owner about how each piece is created from recycled materials.
  • The art is really cool and affordable. The painted surfboards are especially eye catching. The owner is very knowledge about the Caribbean and it's diaspora. Speaking to him was a highlight of our trip. He stressed the importance of supporting local small business owners.
  • Always wonderful! Love your art Stephen! When we make our yearly trip to Antigua this is a MUST STOP!
