Barbara puts together such an amazing collection. You may pop in for a girlfriend gift of earrings and find you need help loading your car. She has created jewelry, light fixtures, vases and more. A must see!

On my recent visit to St Thomas I visited Water Candy. A unique gift store, the place to buy Real Souvenirs. All made in store by Barbara. Beautiful jewellery and neat gifts. The store is a must visit.
