    Lovely Shop
    This shop (in Holetown, although there is a shop at the airport) was just lovely and the ladies who staffed it were delightful. Was able to find the perfect holiday gifts for my grandchildren and a gorgeous Jill Walker print for myself. Only thing to say is read the captions on the prints (or remember to bring your reading glasses) - I thought I was buying a scene from Barbados but it was Antigua! 🤦🏻‍♀️
    Thank you for your review. We do have a few prints by Jill Walker of the other islands and I'll be sure to remind the girls to mention it. Look forward to seeing you again.

    Wonderful shop with amazing staff!
    After going to explore the Chattle village we stopped into this lovely shop for a quick look, after stepping into this shop we realised that we will be spending a lot of time in here. They have a wonderful array of items from clothes and hats to prints. The staff are wonderful and attentive to every need whilst you are browsing. After visiting the shop we knew that we had to go back during our time in Barbados and upon entering the shop over a week later they still remembered details about us from our prior visit. I cannot fault this shop at all, and I am looking forward to visiting again next year.
    Thank you for your great review! I'm so glad to hear you got on so well! Look forward to seeing you next visit.

    I hired a taxi driver for airport transfers and a full-day island tour when I was in Barbados. He took me to the Chattel Village branch of Best of Barbados Gift Shop, where they sold genuine Barbados products, not the ones made overseas. He was right. I got a bag full of Barbados souvenirs. The next day, I went back to Holetown for the Holetown Festival and bought another bag of mostly items with Jill Walker paintings on them from the same store. A few days later, before I flew back home, I saw Best of Barbados Gift Shop in the airport lounge area. The prices were the same as the Chattel Village store, not higher like some airports. I bought more souvenirs at the airport. This shop is a must-visit. There are several locations on the island, including the cruise terminal.
    Thanks for your great review! We're so pleased that you loved our shops and found some great gift ideas.

Lovely shop in the cruise terminal selling cute items. The 3 ladies, Michelle, Valerie and Sherry completely made our day! Running low on US currency, they were more than happy and accommodating. We were allowed to make a purchase and charge above the amount for a cash advance. That gesture was a true save for our last cruise day. We needed to tip the staff. We had experienced a most disappointing excursion with a local taxi driver. They were most upset and took us to taxi dispatch to identify the driver who gave us no name nor car number. Michelle explained to the other drivers and I was assured the matter would be addressed. This shop is a great store, bank and detective agency. AND, if one of you gals will text me with how to contact you, I found a fuzzy picture of the driver! Our opinion of the island people was totally transformed into a beautiful experience. Thank you!!

Thank you for your review. It sounds like quite a day! I'm sorry to get back to you so late. I'll forward your message to Valerie so at least she knows that you appreciated their help. Hope to see you next time you visit Barbados.

We stopped by a Massey to pick up some food, and there were a group of tiny looking homes that are converted to shops: jewelry, ladies wears and this gift shop. This shop has many small gifts and trinkets representative of Barbados. What is good, is that the place is clean, nicely laid out items and the contents did NOT present as cheap or poorly put together. I really liked this small store. The ladies working there are very nice and helpful.

My husband, myself and our adult daughter were in Barbados from April 11th -22nd, 2015. We were looking for T-shirts, short sets, locally made turtles etc for the grandchildren. My daughter was was looking for turtles for her co-workers and friends, in addition to jewelry. This store didn't disappoint and the staff was so helpful.

When we were trying to find t-shirt sizes for the grandchildren and myself a staff member came and helped me select them. This I thought was so helpful. The store has a great variety of locally made items from pencils, flags to jewelry.

This is really one of the few places to get any type of gifts for family and friends. The prices are reasonable (cheaper the the airport) and the staff are very helpful. My only disappointment is they don't carry many XL or 2XL t-shirts. It's worth a quick visit.

Thanks for visiting our store while you were here on holiday. Your positive comments are appreciated. Good customer service is very important to us and we are pleased when positive feedback on our service is given. With respect to the sizes of T-shirts we do carry (XL or 2 XL) in all styles, however, it was possible, we were out of those sizes as they are the most popular ones. We sincerely apologize, and if you so desire the shirt, visit our website,choose an item and write in the comment section the description of the T-shirt. We will be more than delighted to post the item to you.
