St. Thomas Shopping
St. Thomas shopping is famous throughout the West Indies as a great place to pick up duty-free items at reasonable prices. No sales tax, plus deals on jewelry, china, liquor, and linens make a day or two devoted to St. Thomas shopping a worthwhile addition to any trip there. Open-air St. Thomas shopping "malls" throughout the island also feature local artisans selling traditional Caribbean handicrafts.
In Charlotte Amalie, a crisscrossing section of alleys and roads between Post Office and Market squares forms the main St. Thomas shopping area, showcasing everything from high-end European china shops to charming craft vendors. For great jewelry buys, stroll along Main street in this area and you are guaranteed to find something of interest. The Havensight and Royal Dane Malls in Charlotte Amalie are also good St. Thomas shopping destinations, where a large selection of liquor, clothing, and craft shops let you compare prices for the best deals. From Charlotte Amalie, head east along Route 38 to Tillett Gardens if your St. Thomas shopping itinerary includes searching for hand-woven silk, candles, or local paintings.
St. Thomas shopping malls also feature specialty grocery stores if you want to sample some local treats or just want to stock up on some groceries. Try the Gourmet Gallery at Havensight for an eclectic mix of wines, deli meats, and caviar, and Grandma Sandy's Island Cookie Company at Royal Dane Mall for Caribbean baked goodies.
