Default Shop Till You Drop!

If you had $250.00 to spend on whatever "you" want while in port......what would you buy? Favorite port to indulge yourself? Best "get" ever?

Perfume, leather goods, watches, jewelry, tableclothes, trinkets, tees shirts?

My Mass license plate is Shop*r......I would do very good with this challenge:)

Okay, I'll play. I hate malls, so cruise shopping is so my thing.
Handcrafts...particular weakness for wood carvings. My all time favorite is a large (3+ ft . tall) horsehead carved out of yellow cedar, from Mazatlan.

That's one of the benefits you get, with driving to the port, you don't have to buy the statue a coach ticket to get home;)

True, that I would never had been able to consider that piece if I was flying. However, DH, a.k.a. lovable pack mule, did have to haul it around for a while!

Default jewelry of course!

If I had 250.00 to spend on anything I wanted, it would definitely be a piece of jewelry, probably in St Thomas. My favorite purchase was a gorgeous diamond ring with a price of 3800. that my hubby got for 900.! Lovely 3 main diamonds with channel diamonds up both sides. I also got a beautiful white gold necklace with an ammolite gem set in a square setting for my daughter in St. Martin. That was priced at 1800. and I got it for just over 400.! Trip you sound like my kind of shopping buddy!
