I think any of the street vendors will have them. If you're going to St. Thomas, wait until then and go to the stalls at the edge of downtown - you'll find everything there at great prices. Was just in St. Thomas last week and got a few Christmas gift Kate Spade knockoffs for $20.00, Dooney & Burke, Prada - they're all there!

If you buy more than one from the same vendor, barter with him for a better price. Just tell him what you'll pay - it usually works.

Just remember that the stalls in St. Thomas are the hottest place in the world! Don't know why, but every time I'm there, I'm sweating like a pig! Take some water, keep calm, don't rush and have fun with the vendors.

Bon Voyage!

Do the knockoffs in St Thomas have the designer names on them? Do they look real?
Just wondering

Hey I Got back from my cruise 2 weeks ago. I saw some bags but they wanted 85 bucks for a small LV! They are really looking and have the names and everything.

The bags in St. Thomas do have the designer names on them. I would be hard pressed to tell the difference between a $40.00 bag and a $400.00 bag.

Read my post above regarding the "stalls" in St. Thomas.

Have fun!
