Items MADE in St. Kitts

Recommended Posts

We plan to be in St. Kitts next year. Do you know of any shops, etc. where I can purchase items MADE there?

I second the Caribelle Batik. I bought a couple handheld fans there and was happy to see the label says it is made in St. Kitts. In fact, you can take a trip to the actual factory where they’re made. I bought our fans at their store at the port.

April will almost be here, so I thought I would ask this question about St. Kitts.

 

It was mentioned to check out Caribelle Batik (product made at St. Kitts) at Romney Manor.  Is Romney Manor a store, town or what?

Paul58, thank you for your answer in regard to Caribelle Batik in St. Kitts.  My question, is Port Zante very far (if you know) from where we dock?  Do we take a Taxi to get to it, or can we walk?

The ship should dock at Port Zante.  Just walk to the shop.

Thank you Paul.  That sounds simple enough to find it. 🙂

Using the measuring function on Google Earth, Caribelle Batik is located approx 200 yards straight ahead after you exit the arrival bldg. It will be on your left.

Thank you Paul.  I have a feeling I won't have any problem finding the place now. 🙂

We'll be in St Kitts in a couple of weeks and signed up for the Thenford Gray tour which stops at Romney Manor.  I know I'm going to want to spend the time there exploring the grounds and not shopping.  Does the batik shop near the port have the same items?  We should have time after the tour to shop before getting back on the ship.

They will have most of the items that are found at Romney Manor.

In reading this, it makes me wonder if taking the time on a paid tour to Romney Manor makes sense if you can purchase near the ship? Is taking that time on a tour to another location instead worthwhile, or is the plantation estate time well spent in itself?

Sorry, site doesn't seem to be working so just google Palms Court Gardens St. Kitts.

We stopped at Romney Manor (nice grounds)

on the way up to Brimstone Hill Fortress. They have lovely Batik stuff!!

The buildings have cute Victorian Gingerbread decorations!

 

Do a West Coast tour that includes the Fortress and other things as well!

Nice pictures.  We these pictures from the suggested taking a "west coast tour", or asking for that in St. Kitts?

I can confirm that there is a Caribelle Batik shop at the port.  I bought a cute sundress there.  But if you get a chance to visit Romney Manor, it really is beautiful.  We did the Grand Tour of St Kitts with Thenford Grey.  I would highly recommend it.
