St. Martin and St. Maarten Shopping

Shopaholics are drawn to the huge array of stores, and jewelry in particular is big business on both sides of the island. (Many stores have outlets in both places.) Duty-free shops can offer substantial savings—about 15% to 30% below U.S. and Canadian prices—on cameras, expensive jewelry, watches, liquor, cigars, and designer clothing, but not always, so make sure you know U.S. prices to know

if you're getting a deal, and be prepared to bargain hard. Stick with the big vendors that advertise in the tourist press, and you will be more likely to avoid today's ubiquitous fakes and replicas. On both sides of the island, be alert for idlers. They can snatch unwatched purses.

Prices are in dollars on the Dutch side, in euros on the French side. As for bargains, there are more to be had on the Dutch side; prices on the French side may be higher than those back home, and being in euros doesn't help. Merchandise may not be from the newest collections, especially with regard to clothing; there are items available on the French side that are not available on the Dutch side.
