  • We stumbled across this place by accident when driving past. It spiked our curiosity and we went to see what was for sale there as a souvenir. Not many of the buildings were open at the time (hence only four stars), but the shop that was had a great selection of glassware and artworks by local artists and craftspeople. Better quality and more original than some of the dedicated souvenir stores' wares.
  • Really interesting place to visit. Don't be fooled into thinking it's just for ship tourists. Brilliant local people selling local crafts at really great prices .... a definite place to visit
  • It's a throwback to a true Bajan village with local fare and momentos. I would recommend a visit if you're a tourist. It's also great for hosting open air events as I attended an event at the location, Unwined, and it was laid out. Only issue was parking
  • A must visit for tourists and locals. A wide variety of beautiful Barbadian arts and craft.
  • Brilliant for local crafts from local people. Great prices too .... don't be put off because it's close to the port .... well worth the time to visit
