How would you like to take home, as gifts or as items to adorn your home, some small drawings and paintings, or wood carvings, or wooden utensils, or straw baskets? Would you like the prices to be far below what those items would cost you in an in-town or airport craft store? Well, they are! The artists' items are displayed at a small shop. The last photos on this page will help you to identify the shop as you get close to it.

Below are photos of wooden sculptures that represent aspects of Jamaican culture and artifacts, some of which can serve as containers. These are specialties of Jamaican crafts persons.
