Couleurs des Iles: On the Rue General Charles de Gaulle, about 3 streets up the shore, running parallel to Gustavia Harbor in St. Bart's, I found a hat, beach clothes/cigar shop. The staff was helpful and I bought a tan sun hat. I wore it for an hour and the stitching holding the brim together ripped. Bringing the hat back and not finding another, the owner, a kindly man, had it sewn. He promised the hat was packable and I carefully wrapped it in tissue and followed his directions. However, the hat is unwearable since it now has 4 large creases and comes to an odd point at the top. The price was 190 euros, about $250, and I plan to return it next year to be refunded. I will keep you posted as to the willingness of this owner to stand behind his goods!
I post this to aid other shoppers in St. Bart's.
