If you are downtown, you must visit Tropical Creations! No, seriously!! This place has some of the nicest locals and best local selection of authentic (Island) stuff you will find on the entire island! The ladies are so nice and friendly, it felt like family. I stumbled upon this place after lunch. I went and grabbed my wife for what... More

While visiting St Thomas, my wife and I found a hidden treasure. After disembarking from your cruise ship and avoiding the shops located at the pier, find your way to "Tropical Creations". It's located 10 mins walk from the pier in the Royal Dame Mall and owned by the charming and beautiful Tulip Fleming. The Gallery and Boutique includes clothing,... More

Stumbled upon Tropical Creations and couldn't get enough of the store and its owner and resident Artist, Tulip Fleming. Beautiful Caribbean souvenir pieces crafted from locally grown calabash/gourds and tastefully decorated with colors and textures to suit the most discerning taste and every... More

Stumbled on this quaint little store a few days ago. I was truly amazed at what the owner and creator of a considerable collection of a good selection of items displayed there could do on a local fruit called the Calabash. The calabash when matured has a very durable shell which is amenable to the fine crafting and artistry so... More

After leaving Gladys' Cafe, the beautifully crafted bowls inside this shop caught my eye. The owner was so friendly, and the pieces she designed were done very well. I am very happy with my purchase. I was glad to support a local islander.

We were drawn in by the small steel pans on display in the entryway. Tulip, the owner and artist of the store, seemed happily amused that my husband knew how to play. We played for a bit, and then looked over her art. She makes really pretty vases and bowls out of Calabash & Gourds, then hand paints them in... More
