Worth the short walk from our dock, I passed all the cheesy trinket shops to find this oasis! Filled with really fascinating coins, beautiful antique jewelry, and some really great bargains! I greatly enjoyed perusing the store and finding some great souvenirs to take home!...More

We stop in here every Cayman visit. Knowledgeable owner and staff, who are very helpful and friendly. Primarily small items such as historical coins, jewelry, art and porcelain. Well worth a visit!
