Main Street has lots of shopping in historic building, but it's a little hard to recognize them. If you want jewelry shopping, this is IT! Personal favorites are Okidanok (sp) where the goldsmiths create one-of a kind treasures right in front of you. They are located in Palm Passage. Check out Dynasty Dazzlers for the largest selection of bling and... More

Main Street is pretty much jewelry store after jewelry store. A lot of the independent stores on the waterfront or in the alleys will make better deals. If you are looking for quality tshirts, go to Local Colors on the waterfront. By far the next quality. They are not the 4 for $20 type shirts.

Quite a few jewelry places, people are very pushy to get you to come in to their stores. The prices are rarely the prices. The palm paradise alley is awesome

We visited a week ago on an RCI Freedom of the Seas cruise and were the only ship docked. As a result, the street was not 'heaving' with people. Main Street lacks variety as it is almost exclusively jewellery shops which is a shame as its a nice, older style street.

Downtown with all the shops to shop and easily to get to from your hotel. Taxis are a real value for traveling around town. Liquor is cheap there also. You have to carry it and check it with the airlines and it will be delivered with your baggage, so be sure to get where baggage comes out when you get... More

Great place to look at contemporary jewelry designs. Beware of ship recommended stores, as they are known for their kickbacks to the cruise lines. Some are even owned by the cruise companies. Be careful that you have an idea of the appropriate price for an item back home. Prices marked on the items are quite high, giving them plenty of... More

Downtown Charlotte Amalie is very old with narrow streets filled with stores. The neat thing is one store flows into the next. You don't have to go outside to enter each individual store. Most stores are on the high end of merchandise but you can bargain with the store owners. Make sure you go on days when cruise ships are... More

I purchased a beautiful pair of earrings at Cardow. No bait and switch, no gimmicks....highly inflated prices to dicker down...many stores inflated 70%! Honest family owned business. Ask for Michael......easy to find. Right on the corner!
