Shopping Highlights on Harbour Island

posted by on February 25th, 2013

Shopping Highlights on Dunmore Street Harbour IslandCentral to Harbour Island is Dunmore Town. This quaint and friendly community features old Victorian structures adorned with Bahamian colorful pastel paint schemes. No high rise hotels, fast food or traffic jams on this island!

For such a small place, Harbour Island has more than its fair share of sweet boutiques where you can find one-of-a-kind fashion and keepsakes.

All ages love the Dilly Dally, located at the main intersection in town, for Bahamamian straw goods, “briland” tees, postcards, and jewelry and ornaments crafted from pink conch shells. (In other words, the irresistible trinkets you buy on holiday and start questioning on the plane ride home.)

India Hicks’ Sugar Mill is the glamorous source for caftans, European finds, and beach gear. Here you will find an eclectic mix of treasures found from India’s travels around the world, everything from a $1,000 embellished evening kaftan to a child’s bucket and spade. The Sugar Mill also is the flagship store for India Hicks Fine Jewelry.  At the Blue Rooster on King Street, you’ll find gorgeous sundresses, scarves, and unique sandals.

At the top of Gustie’s Hill you will come across The Sand Dollar Shop. Here you can find many locally made treasures including little bottles of pink sand, which Harbour Island’s beaches are renowned for. You might want to take one home to prove pink sand really does exist.

Even a trip to mini-supermarket The Piggly Wiggly is good fun, just to see what came in on the boat from the mainland that day.
