Default SHOPPING IN THE ISLANDS

A wise "port authority" on a recent cruise said something that I wish people would keep in mind... SHOP LOCALLY.. What he meant and what I appreciated was that the $$ we spend at the chain jewelry and electronic shops in every port.. the $$ does not stay there.. it is b etter to buy from a locally owned shop keeper.. We All know who the big chains are..I was able to buy a pearl bracelet for much less at Lord and Taylors on sale than what the store in St Lucia was charging...much less...and camera equipment can be bought over the internet if you know what you want and shop carefully.
