Saba Shopping

The history of Saba lace, one of the island's most popular goods, goes back to the late 19th century. Gertrude Johnson learned lace making at a Caracas convent school. She returned to Saba in the 1870s and taught the art that has endured ever since. Saban ladies display and sell their creations at the community center in Hell's Gate and from their houses; just follow the signs. Collars, tea towels,

napkins, and other small articles are relatively inexpensive; larger ones, such as tablecloths, can be pricey. The fabric requires some careā€”it's not drip-dry. Saba Spice is another island buy. Although it sounds as delicate as lace, and the aroma is as sweet as can be, the base for this liqueur is 151-proof rum.
