Nelson's Dockyard
English Harbour , Antigua
Antigua + Barbuda
Tel: 268 460 1525

A former galley in an 18th-century stone building in Great Harbour houses this boutique, which caters to tourists with swimwear, resort togs, and sandals. It's a well-curated selection of international brands and local one-of-a-kind pieces.

The Goldsmitty
11 Redcliffe Quay
St. John's , Antigua
Antigua + Barbuda
Tel: 268 462 4601

Dutchman Hans Smit has been on Antigua since 1965, beguiling visitors, celebrities, and Antiguans with handmade, one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets, rings, and other jewelry. The mix of traditionally cut gems and more playful hand-wrought gold pieces makes for wide appeal. Prices also vary: Our favorites range from intricate gold earrings reminiscent of sand dollars (priced in the hundreds) to a regal 25-carat multicolored tourmaline necklace that will set you back several thousand.

Open Sundays through Fridays 9 am to 4:30 pm, Saturdays 9 am to 3 pm.

Harmony Hall
Brown's Bay
Nr. Freetown , Antigua
Antigua + Barbuda
Tel: 268 460 4120

Of the numerous galleries and showrooms peddling island art, this is by far the most dependable. It's also the most beautiful, housed in a former 17th-century sugar plantation overlooking Nonsuch Bay. The restaurant/bar built around the stump of the old mill is a refreshing, shaded place for drinks or lunch while you decide how much of the paintings, sculptures, or basketry you can really take home.

Open daily 10:30 am to 6 pm, mid-November through April.

Noreen Phillips
Redcliffe Quay
St. John's , Antigua
Antigua + Barbuda
Tel: 268 462 3127

A former fashion model, Phillips now designs a line of clothing that is part Carnival, part Park Avenue. Everything is cut and stitched on the premises and custom-fitted—if you get here at the beginning of your vacation, you can leave with a custom-made sundress or ball gown. The formalwear can be on the loud side, but the vibrant prints and beadwork of her resort collection are the perfect high-end island souvenir.

Open Mondays and Saturdays 9 am to 5 pm.

Things Local Gallery
Nelson's Dockyard
English Harbour , Antigua
Antigua + Barbuda
Tel: 268 562 5386

Things Local Gallery sells, you guessed it, things that are both local and one-of-a-kind. What makes the shop itself unique is its commitment to reusing only wood from boat wrecks or trees felled by storms. With these materials, they produce wood carvings of fish, boats, birds, and other island inspirations.

Open daily 9 am to 5 pm.
