Overall not as interesting as expected. One real exception is CSS Art and Crafts run by Shonette Williams. She made two blouses for us and they are really nice. Highly recommended.
Interesting shopping center - different shops to look at. I enjoyed going in and out of different retailers. Some have the same items others completely different. Worth a look.
We have been to Barbados many times over the years and love this craft center--it has beautiful LOCALLY made crafts, often times for sale by the actual artisan! The craft center is a series of small shops...like an outdoor mall. TIP: There are a few different buildings in the complex, so if you get to the end of one building,... 更多
We are into our craft work and so were very disappointed when we went to Pelican to find most of the places were shut and the ones that were open just had the usual touristy things that could be found anywhere on the island.

This is a little "outdoor mall" featuring many different kinds of shops. I went to the Monkey Pot and bought some beautiful local pottery, made by Maggie Bell. I also visited the... 更多
I was interested in going to Pelican Craft Center. It is just a short walk outside of the cruise port. It is clean and has great potential but unfortunately when we visited there was little to see as many of the shops are vacant or closed. It is fairly large but had little to hold our interest with only a... 更多
I walked here from the marina in Bridgetown and it was quite a walk. I was disappointed when I arrived as there was not much there. What was there was great but I would not make it a destination again.
