A Little Bit Of Everything For Everybody
Sep 2019 • Friends
Met by two very charming ladies once we entered. You are almost overwhelmed by all the sights. But there is so much to see and take in. Jewelry, woodwork, fabric, plaited straw work—all beautiful and the more you look the more you see. There are hand carved conch items — and cool crazy socks—great gift for hard to buy for men — with a map of the Bahamas or Bahamian coins on them. Christmas ornaments and plaited garlands. Beautiful! Well worth a visit and nice to support local talent verses mass produced imported “souvenirs”. The grounds are very pretty and worth walking around as well. An art gallery and framing business are also housed here. Approximately a 1/4 mile walk from Montague Beach or short taxi ride from PI hotels. Have your taxi wait if you are making a quick dash or come back for you in 30 minutes or so. Or call them at the Craft Cottage and see what bus route to take or other suggestions depending on your plans. Really nice property to visit.

Too Many Choices
Nov 2018 • Solo
What a treasure the Craft Cottage is! All locally made items and such variety!!! I must’ve taken 3 trips around the store and saw something different every time. Had lots of choices for the guys in my life so managed to get some very cool locally made socks with a map of the Bahamas woven into them, along with a conch shell jewelry item for a friend. Will definitely return for more! Katrina was behind the counter and was cheerful and very helpful without being intrusive.

Unique crafts made from local products
Jan 2018 • Solo
I have read and seen a lot about this shop on instagram and facebook. It's so attractive that I have to go visit. I took a taxi there. Only few mins from the Cruise Port - Prince George Wharf. The colourful building and the cultural art foklore statues outside the building are an attraction in itself. Very artistic. The craft shop is full of various unique gifts made from local products, not just from Nassau, but from the other islands. I was amazed at how things that I would normally discard, but they turn it onto arts, jewelleries, signs, crafts, etc. Bought a beautiful hand painted wine glass and a wall painted picture. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend for unique gifts to your families, friends and or love ones. They have it all. Reasonable price too. A lot different from the handicrafts stalls around downtown Nassau. Highly recommend and I can't wait to go back to buy some more gifts.

Island Products
Feb 2017 • Business
The products for sale at the craft cottage are all made locally. We took a cab from The Atlantis resort to the store and purchased handmade jewelry, a belt made from recycled tires (cuter than it sounds!), bowls carved from conch shells and a shell-adorned wreath. Excellent selection of items actually made in Nassau and other islands. We had planned to take a cab to our next stop, Bahamas Art and Handicraft. Nadine, the owner of Craft Cottage was concerned that we would not be able to get a cab. She drove us to the Bahamas Art and Handicraft store, ran an errand and came back to pick us up. Drove us to another stop and then took us back to The Atlantis Resort on her way home. She made our shopping excursion to Nassau a wonderful experience. Be sure to visit the craft cottage for your unique gifts from the Bahamas.

Nadine is great
Apr 2016 • Friends
I've done a lot of travelling this year , by far this was the best!!! The cottage was full of treasures . Loved the jewellery here. A little hard to find , make sure you remember it's in doongalik studios& gallery. Prices are responsible , Nadine and her friends where great, so pleasant to talk with. Had a great time here with my daughter..

Unique Crafts - Wide Assortment
Feb 2016 • Couples
The Craft Cottage aptly describes this shop run by Nadine Ramphal, with whom we had a pleasant 45 minutes conversation discussing how she got started and the crafts scene on the island. The approximately 400 sq ft shop contains a wide variety of crafts made by local Nassuvians. Crafts run the gamut from jewelry, to soaps, to fabrics, to art. We purchased a special hand painted sign and a ladle with the handle decorated in beads. There were some very attractive belts made out of all things tires! Talk about repurposing and recyling. It's important to note that these are items made by people whose primary job is something other than crafts. While there, a policeman came in and discussed with Nadine whether his birdhouses which he likes to make might be of interest. The shop is located just next to Doongalik Gallery and only a short distance from the Retreat. Well worth your time to visit if you're in that near eastern part of Nassau. If coming from downtown, ask for any bus that goes to Village Road past Queens College.
