St. Barth's is a luxury destination frequented by wealthy and sometimes famous travelers.  Its hotels and resorts are known the world over for their excellent food and service, not to mention their beauty.  They are also very expensive.  The same holds true for St. Barth's shopping.  It is of the highest quality and price.  This is definitely not the place for bargain hunters.  Items for sale in many of St. Barth's shops and boutiques, located in almost all resorts as well as in St. Jean, Gustavia, and other of the island's towns, include French wines, perfumes, high-end European designer fashions and shoes, fine jewelry, crystal and china, and all sorts of tony spa and wellness products.  There are also many shops on the island that cater to enthusiasts of the island's favorite sport:  tennis.  Many shops also sell equipment for golfing and water sports.

If you happen to be in St. Barth's and don't have a ton of money to spend, window shopping can still be a lot of fun!
