About
Copperstone is the only souvenir store you need to visit when you are on the island!We are a mother and daughter team, who try to bring you something different than the average souvenir. Home to Curacao's official cat Skadey too! Skadey is the Prime Minister's favorite- he loves cats. Ask for Melissa - the artist and creator of Skadey, and Hema the one behind the most creative souvenirs you will find. Family owned, each corner is filled with love, care and amazing prices. Wholesalers to a great deal of stores, we've got the best prices and variety! Exclusive retailers of Dhan Arts Paintings and Souvenirs. Located in Punda on the same street as the Synagogue, look for two huge cats painted by Melissa. Skadey and Ringo - you can even pose for selfies with them! Hope to see you soon!

We were walking around Willemstad as tourists and wandered into this shop! So glad we did! What an amazing experience! The custom art and items we purchased now decorate our pool!

Amazing shop

This is a GREAT and cute little shop. Customer service is amazing! I got 2 custom skadey cats and one normal one that she already had done and I love them! They are so cute and I love her art. Probably my favorite shop that I visited while I was on the island!

A true gem of a shop
Mar 2021
What a wonderful surprise to discover this shop! In addition to the quality and distinctiveness of the items in the store, it was a pleasure to strike up a conversation with Melissa--the shopkeeper and artist--as well as her mother Hema who's also there. Their warmth enabled us to relax and enjoy the experience in a way that's completely different from a generic tourist souvenir shop.

And even if you're not a "cat person" yourself, you can appreciate the artistry of what Melissa has done with those pieces and maybe be inspired to get one for a cat lover in your life!

Original souvenir
Aug 2020 • Family
I follow Melissa on Instagram and as a catmom I had to buy a Skadey during our vacation on Curaçao! Had a lovely chat with Melissa. I'm definitely not an influencer, but she knew who I was, a lovely feeling. Will definitely buy an other Skadey next year, maybe a customized :-)
So if you are on Curaçao and want an original souvenir go visit Copperstone and buy yourself (and/or your catsitter) a Skadey!

Favourite shop in Curaçao
Dec 2019
The one place to go in Curaçao is Copperstone. This shop has every gift you could ask for and Melissa is not only an incredibly talented artist, she also greets everyone like I long lost friend.
Every time I go to Curaçao, Copperstone is my first stop so that I can catch up with Melissa and see what new and happy things I can find in the store.
I love my painting - Skadey & Van Gogh and it makes me smile every time I see it. I like cats so I am drawn to all the things Melissa creates, however there are plenty of other treasures to be found.

Amazing artwork
Oct 2019
Visited this adorable shop back in October, amazing painted artwork, loved them so much we bought ourselves a Skadey, and our daughter in law one as well,
For mother’s day day my Cadillac of a husband ordered me a custom nurse Skadey, the detail that was put into this is amazing. Melissa was awesome to work with, and my gorgeous Skadey arrived to Ontario , Canada, fast, safe and gorgeous, When you’re on this beautiful island you have to make this your first stop, you will not regret it

If anyone visits the island— this is definitely a must stop. We met Melissa two years ago and the young lady is fabulous, talented and very sweet. This shop has everything that you could want plus it is home to the Skadey cat and the artist. I have a Skadey cat and it looks like my Oliver!! Love it! Please, please visit this store!!

Amazing shop in Curaçao!
Dec 2019 • Family
We stumbled upon this shop during a day trip on our cruise. The painted artwork on the outside of the building is beautiful and so inviting. Once inside, we met the amazingly talented artist Melissa - the owner’s daughter. Her famous Skady cat art is sold in the store and we of course came home with one! A must stop while in Curaçao for all your souvenir needs!!!
