Exuma's Valued Souvenirs
In previous stories I told you about "free" souvenirs you can take home as mementos of your vacation in Exuma, such as shells and sand dollars, then I told you about "low cost" souvenirs such as straw goods and shell jewelry. This time we move up on the cost scale to see what memory joggers you can purchase for a larger investment.
Exuma's quality souvenirs immediately make me think of the Sandpiper store in George Town. This popular store, run by Diane Minns and her daughter Jessica, is very tastefully laid out with a vast selection of items to treasure and remind you of your Exuma vacation.
From quality dresses, tops and swim wear, all for tropical climes, in beautiful colors, to silver and shell jewelry made by local artisans. from unusual figurines made from wire and epoxy (doesn't sound very nice but when you see it I think you will be impressed !).
One department is devoted to pottery made by Jessica, this talented lady has cups and bowls and vases. Another is devoted to book and maps, mostly related to The Bahamas.
My favorite area is partly devoted to ceramic tiles with local Bahamian character cottages and scenes of old. Then I can spend ages browsing through the selection of prints from old photographs of Bahama times gone by.
Do Not leave Exuma without a visit to Sandpiper.
