About
Copperstone is the only souvenir store you need to visit when you are on the island!We are a mother and daughter team, who try to bring you something different than the average souvenir. Home to Curacao's official cat Skadey too! Skadey is the Prime Minister's favorite- he loves cats. Ask for Melissa - the artist and creator of Skadey, and Hema the one behind the most creative souvenirs you will find. Family owned, each corner is filled with love, care and amazing prices. Wholesalers to a great deal of stores, we've got the best prices and variety! Exclusive retailers of Dhan Arts Paintings and Souvenirs. Located in Punda on the same street as the Synagogue, look for two huge cats painted by Melissa. Skadey and Ringo - you can even pose for selfies with them! Hope to see you soon!

A shop not to be missed

A lovely shop and really reasonable prices. Melissa is such a nice and friendly person.
The Scadey cats are really cute. I bought a Christmas one. It is the perfect souvenir from Curaçao. You definitely cannot miss Copperstone.

Skadey’ heritage
Nov 2021 • Couples
A lovely store in the heart of Punda on the island of Curaçao with all handmade products. We came for Skadey; a cute cat painted by Melissa herself by hand. Very original and the perfect souvenir if you love cats or just like colorful souvenirs. The owner is very friendly, helpfull and within a few seconds you are engaged in the most joyful conversation.
We’ll make sure we return to my island and to her beautiful store. It is more than worth it

What a cute shop! The hand made souvenirs are one of a kind, quite unique. There are many options to choose from. Also, it’s a family owned business. What more can you ask for? Definitely worth a visit!

A shop with an artistic flair
Sep 2021 • Couples
This store was one of my highlights during my stay in Curaçao. It’s a family run business and the owners are very welcoming. Stop by, and you are bound to find a unique souvenir to take back home. I love my custom-made NFL skadey cat. In all my travel, this is the best so far.

Amazing and unique gifts
Oct 2021
My wife and I like to buy souvenirs when we travel but they have to be unique. We found Copperstone to be a treasure trove of unique and beautiful souvenirs and gifts. We met Melissa and her Mom at Copperstone and they are some of the kindest, nicest people we met in Willemstad. We chatted with them for the longest time and of course came away with Skadey Cats for us and for friends and family. The store is filled with amazing gift ideas and is a must see for anyone visiting Punda. Melissa and her Mom are sweethearts!

The best and unique souvenir shop
Sep 2021 • Couples
If you’re looking for a unique Curacao souvenir, you’ve come to the right place. Very welcoming and sweet people who always want to tell you everything about their store.
The most unique thing about the store is Melissa’s Skadeys, and paintings of cats.
If you try to come in and only look, you’ll probably fail (I guess she’s as good at sales as she is at painting.)

If you love cats, or just a big fan of local art, it’s the perfect store for you!!

Lovely store, Lovely Skadey's, Lovely everything.
Jun 2021
When I was on Curacao my sister send me on this mission to this store because she saw one of the cats online. So when I was there I hunted down the store, which was very easy to find as it is in the centre of Willemstad. Normally when I enter souvenir stores there are always those grumphy people behind the counter where they don't even give you a smile. Well at Copperstone I met Melissa and I can tell you, she is the exact opposite! She is very friendly and kind and also likes to talk a lot! (which is good!) So once we were done talking about skinny annorexic birds (flamingo's) she carefully packed the cat (which looks beauitful) and took it home. As tradtiton at Copperstone you send a picture with your Skadey and your pet! She will then upload them on Instagram which I think is very lovely. She cares about what she makes and she loves it. That is was Copperstone left me as a memory. A memory which you won't get at other store.

A Store with a Story
Aug 2021 • Couples
My husband and I stopped in at Copperstone while on our honeymoon. We met the lovely and friendly Melissa at the counter who told us the story of how her and her family came to Curaçao and started a business. Melissa’s Skadey Cat creation became the official cat of Curaçao… Naturally, we bought 2 Skadeys and a bunch of other goodies for our family and friends. Melissa documents where all of her Skadeys go, which I love. Copperstone is the best spot to buy souvenirs! Highly recommend!
