We wandered in based on the fact that it has some interesting artwork hanging outside. We then found out that all of the artwork is made from recycled materials! What a visual treat it was!

They have lots of variety and most of it make by them with recycled materials. Bought some beautiful lobster, whale, toucan and crab wall hangings made from recycled tin. They are a reminder of a very nice vacation hanging in my garden among my plants.

Great place to purchase recycled items.. Nice that the people of the islands who made it get some of the proceeds....I even found some beach glass there. I collect it everywhere we go.

Cool little shop, decent prices. Everything is recycled and portion of the profits help local families in need. Clerk was friendly but a little pushy. Cool place all around!
