Howelton Estate

This arts-and-crafts shop and studio (formerly Caribelle Batik), high atop Morne Fortune, is named for the old Victorian mansion in which the enterprise is housed. Craftspeople demonstrate the art of batik and silk-screen printing, which you can buy in the shop—along with chocolate products, coconut oil products, and gift items, all made in Saint Lucia. There's a terrace where you can have a cool drink and a garden full of tropical orchids and lilies. You can also take a tour of the estate, and they offer chocolate-making workshops.

J. Q.'s Shopping Mall

A large supermarket is the focal point here, along with boutiques, restaurants, cafés, and other businesses that sell services and supplies. 

Melting Pot West Indian Craft Studio and Shop

Artist and master carver Winston Fevrier sells his wood carvings and unique hand-painted masks, which are on display in his small studio perched on the cliff overlooking the village of Anse La Raye. As friendly as he is talented, Winston is a joy to chat with as you pick out a piece of local artwork to take home. He'll even carve something to order while you wait, if you wish.

High-quality T-shirts, clothing, and resort wear and colorful souvenirs are sold at reasonable prices—and duty free.
