Default Sunglass deals?

I know shopping can be plentiful, any ideas if designer sunglasses can be found cheaper in: St. Thomas, Barbados or aruba. Thanks. If St. Thomas--any store suggetsions? I am thinking about a pair of Maui Jim's.

Default No real deals on sunglasses

Report back: I did find sunglasses (I am talking the high quality, not just fashion type), mostly in Dominica- a store known for leather, they had many designer sunglasses. No real price difference than the US, just no tax. Glad I bought the pair I wanted before the cruise.
OH- hubby lost a pair in bottom of Caribbean in case someone finds them 8)
It was on the "Screamin Eagle" so yes those glasses leash would have worked. Thankfully his were "cheap kind"

Default Maui Jim

There is a misconception that Maui Jim's and Oakleys would be cheaper abroad, but they are both "Product of the USA." Sure, the frames are made all over the world, but MJ lenses are made in Peoria, IL and Oakley lenses are made in California.
