Three days after we bought about 10 items from Straw Market (SM), we still managed to buy several items from Bahama Craft Center (BCC). I feel there are about 10 - 20 % of local design items from BCC I didn't found in SM. Certainly, I also feel there are about 10 - 20% products from SM I don't see in BCC either. So, there are advantage shopping in between the two places. In general, I feel more relax shopping in BCC even though sellers from BCC also come over to convince you to buy their stuff when you get close to their counter. Most of the items in BCC are negotiable. BCC is not as crowded as SM.
A seller from one of the BCC counter offer us she can stitch our names into the straw baskets with no additional charge (She could likely be Dorothea who was mentioned from the previous reviewer). Unfortunately, we already bought 2 baskets from SM before we shop BCC, Otherwise, even if we already bought a straw basket before, we could have buy another one from her.
BCC is about 3-4 minutes walk from Comfort Suite and about 5 minutes walk from Atlantis Coral Tower entrance which is right at the interception of Shoppers Mall Rd and Harbour Rd behind Scotiabank. It is a two building center with about 15 - 20 sellers. Visitors who stay in Paradise Island for 4-5 days could easily visit BCC twice during their trip.
