We are a Treasure box full of unique Bahamian Art and crafts. You will be seeing a taste of each of our islands in the Bahamas. So if you really want to know what these islands have to offer you must pay us a visit! Our 300 Bahamian vendors have used our natural resources to create beautiful pieces that you won't see anywhere else! From shell, glass, straw, paintings, jams, peppers, books, jewelry, wood carvings and lots of history, we have it all, you won't be disappointed! Just a mile from Paradise bridge.

I was impressed with this shop. It has very unique handmade jewelry, hair accessories. There were pictures. It is very authentic, it screams "Bahamas". I loved it. There is something there for everyone to buy for themselves or for someone else.

If you want hand-crafted items, made locally, this is the place! Many affordable items, but also more precious treasures to be found. I've been three times this week. You won't regret shopping here.
