Shopping Dominica

Posted by admin 0 Comment

If you are looking for Dominican memorabilia to take home, you will find that shopping for local crafts is relaxed and hassle-
free. Stroll through Roseau and notice the prevalence of small craft shops and sidewalk tents with a wide assortment
of Dominican souvenir items. There are many locally crafted items made from wood, bamboo, calabash, straw, coconut and leather, but Dominica’s most distinctive memorabilia are the indigenous Carib crafts made from larouma reed and the famous vetiver grass mats, all appliquéd by hand. You can find these island-wide, but especially in the Carib Territory and the Old Market Plaza in Roseau. Locally designed tie-dye and batik clothing, leather bags, sandals and hand-crafted jewellery make great gifts. You can also buy exquisite art pieces, local spices and condiments, natural soaps and essential oils.
Duty-free shops offer a wide range of luxury goods including liquor, tobacco, jewellery and perfumes. Currency conversion
is straight-forward, with most shops accepting US Dollars, Pounds Sterling and Euros.
