Antigua and Barbuda: Shopping Holiday
Life is a beach
Shopping is not the main reason for choosing Antigua as a holiday destination. As a momento of your holiday there are some uniquely Antiguan purchases such as straw goods, local pottery, batik and silk screen printed fabrics, jewellery with semi-precious Antiguan stones. The duty free shops at Heritage Quay and Redcliffe Quay at St. John’s sell crystal, perfumes, watches and table linen. The colourful local Friday market and Vendors Mall at St. John’s sells handicraft, clothing and souvenirs. Shopping hours are Monday to Friday 8.30 to 4.00 pm and Saturday 8 to 12 midday, half day closing on Thursday. Be warned, when the cruise ships are in port, expect crowds and higher prices.
