This family run chain of gift shops, founded in 1975 by Jill and Jimmy Walker, prides itself in providing its customers with distinctive, quality merchandise made or designed in Barbados with many beautiful prints and giftware ranges designed by Jill herself. On her arrival in Barbados over 50 years ago, Jill fell in love with the people and the culture and began painting her surroundings, by chance recording a lifestyle that is, in places, slowly disappearing. Following in the family tradition, Jill’s daughter, Sue Trew and Sue’s daughter, Holly - both gifted artists - are proud to have introduced their own art and vibrant designs into their shops, making perfect reminders of your Barbados visit and bringing ‘Bajan sunshine’ to your home.
If you’ve not yet bought your ticket and are desperate for a little ‘Bajan Sunshine’… today, why not browse on the Best of Barbados website and purchase it?
